Extra Ca$h

As we find ourselves social distancing for an indefinite amount of time with the rise of COVID-19, many of us have been left to question our future financial stability. Whether you’re currently looking for a new source of income, or looking to save up some extra cash while hanging out at home, remote opportunities can be a saving grace in times like these.

Remote positions provide convenient options for those unable to commute or work due to a more restrictive schedule. Remote internships or jobs often have flexible hours, allowing you to work when you want to – even if it’s not during conventional office hours. Other options provide unique opportunities you might not find in a typical job search.


Perhaps the most traditional of remote jobs, freelance writing is extremely popular and versatile. With so many blogs, magazines, newspapers, and columns out there, finding a place to write about your interests has never been easier. Like makeup and fashion? Look into magazines like Vogue, Cosmopolitan, or Refinery29. Finance and Business? Check Business Insider or The Economist. 

If you’d like to make a general search, sites like TextbrokerFreelance Writing Jobs, and ProBlogger are helpful for remote writers just starting out.

Call agent

If you like the communication aspect of administrative work, remote call center agents can find work in anything from reservations to sales. Kornberg notes that the “ability to multitask and problem-solve” and crucial for this position, as you may be handling numerous customers during a single work period.

Website or app testing

Wish you had figured out the Flappy Bird trend before it hit big? You can look for website or app testing positions. Companies or individuals looking to develop new apps, websites, and games need people to try them out before launching. All you have to do is try it out and report on what you find.

Make sure to do your research before applying and committing to a position. If a job has vague requirements and job descriptions, it might be a scam. Companies that are legitimate will most likely have information and reviews online, as well as contact information readily available.

Working remotely is a great way to get experience, expand your skill set, and even financial compensation all with a flexible schedule and location. To succeed and learn from the position, you’ll need to be equipped with not only a working computer and Internet access but also self-motivation and organization.
