The Covid Black Swan Event has forced us to reimagine Work. It is fair to say that remote work will become, moving forward, an unavoidable reality for applicants. Embracing this new Paradigm, firms are now hiring remote professionals in a broad, global and seemingly unstoppable shift.
For those who are looking to future-proof their career by switching to remote work, the ten job categories below should provide some inspiration!
1 Front/back-end developers
Developer teams are, increasingly, fully remote. There is currently a healthy demand for developers. Certain employers, desperate to fill positions, are willing to take bets on self-taught developers – with attractive portfolios.
2 UI/UX Designers
They work in tandem with developers and they too can work remotely. Salaries are not to be scoffed at, especially after a few years of experience: the U.S. average for UI/UX designers is 97 153$, and 123 000 after 13 years.
3 Graphic Designer
Firms realize that in order to survive, they need to become design-led and thus the number of graphic design jobs is increasing. Graphic designer salaries are incredibly attractive but it is important to note that location and experience here are key.
If you are knowledgeable and adamant in working in a technical sector, but do not possess the required technical expertise and experience, writing about it can be a smart, lucrative decision. Writers can get paid handsomely depending on their portfolio and experience.
5 Project Manager
This role was traditionally on-site however due to the rapid development of Project Management software, Project Managers can now work remotely. A project Manager can fetch an average salary of 78,581$ in the U.S., however it is worth noting that salaries vary wildly depending on the sector, firm and location.
While schools are slowly reopening, a large number of students still remain at home, connected via conferencing applications to their teachers. Teachers working from home enjoy the same salary and benefits than their on-site counterparts.
7 Virtual Attorney
No sector, not even Law, is safe when it comes to the virtualization of work. Virtual attorney salaries are mouth-wateringthis is why applicants who relish the opportunity to work remotely should pick a legal specialization that is mostly paper-work and won’t involve spending time in court or on-site!
a headhunter’s job is to find the best applicants for the open positions on their portfolio. As work is increasingly pushed online, so are Headhunters. Firms appreciate working with remote headhunters as it allows them to find great applicants outside of their geographical location.
Accountants review and prepare financial statements and documents for individuals and firms. In this brand new world of work, in which we hardly meet anyone anymore, junior and senior accountants can also enjoy the remote lifestyle.
10 Technical Support Engineer
A technical support engineer provides support for end users and helps solve technical issues on the company side. This role is a great opportunity for tech-savvy individuals who love to help users and enjoy problem-solving.
