What company is doing remotely work?

I'm a college student and I work in school, even though they don't pay me that good. It enough to buy some snacks and it helps me pay some part of my tuition. Since my University shutdown and we're doing online classes, I can't afford to pay the rest of my fall semester class. I'm looking for a job, that will be remotely or anything I can do to pay my school fees.

Kayla’s Answer

Hi Nancy!

I know the company I work for, Quicken Loans, is training and working remotely: https://www.myrocketcareer.com/
Here is a list of other companies I found online as well: https://www.themuse.com/advice/companies-hiring-during-coronavirus-covid-19

You can also find a lot of jobs right now for many of the things said above.

- Grocery stores (Kroger, Walmart, etc.)
- Delivery services (DoorDash, GrubHub, UberEats, Shipt, Instacart, etc.)
- Shipping services (UPS, Amazon, etc.)
- Health care/Health retail (CVS, Walgreen's, etc.)
- Convenience/Retail sores (7 Eleven, Dollar General, Dollar Tree, etc.)

I would also ask around to families you know who may need services like daycare/babysitting, lawn care, and so on.

Nadia’s Answer

The short answer is that all companies based on IT/from the IT industry are more likely to offer remote work.
Based on your previous questions, I assume that you're actual an IT student, so it would also make sense to start working in this kind of business.
Besides a standard "research" and checking job boards, I would recommend to check lists of companies awarded as best place to work, as usually they have lots of benefits such as remote work and offer different entry positions and internships.
Thank you comment icon Thank you so Much. Can you please provide me with a website/links. Nancy
Thank you comment icon Based on my experience, I can definitely recommend Cisco as a company that promotes and offers remote work and is a great place to start your career in IT. https://www.greatplacetowork.com, from the drop-down menu ("Lists") you can choose the general list, but I would focus on the one that is called "for Millennials" or "Women". Alternatively: https://www.forbes.com/sites/alexandratalty/2020/01/14/work-from-home-2020-the-top-100-companies-for-remote-jobs/#65d1bf354196 and the bottom table. Nadia G
Thank you comment icon How do I sign up/login to it? certification login? Nancy
Thank you comment icon You don't have to log in, just click on the chosen list from the main menu on the top of the page and you should have it displayed. All companies have their industry listed right below their name, for example: Cisco - Information Technology. You can review company's profile and if you think it's something interesting, simply search in your browser their career page by using key-words such as "(company name) jobs/career". Nadia G

Currently at this time Verizon is allowing some of its employees to work remotely where possible. Not sure after all this is done if they will be doing more of this or not. Would not hurt to place a resume and explore all your options.

Veronica’s Answer

Hi Nancy,

I am sure as a college student it must be difficult. I would suggest looking for jobs that are in high demand at the moment. Yes, there is a high need in grocery stores, delivery companies (Amazon, Door Dash, PostMates) and fast-food restaurants.

I have attached a few links that could potentially help you find a job at the moment. Good luck! :)

Angela D.’s Answer

Hi there! First off, I would suggest reaching out to your university to see if they have a remote job board, placement opportunities, at-home work study, or other suggestions. They may also have tuition payment plans, deferrals, or other arrangements that can be made given the current climate and uncertain future. Check out the FlexJobs website, among similar others (Ziprecruiter, Indeed, LinkedIn, etc.), for possible remote work and "safer" in-person opportunities such as delivery, grocery store stocking, personal shopper, etc. The jobs section of your local newspaper(s) may also be helpful and are usually searchable online. You may be particularly interested in online customer service or tutoring, which are in relatively high demand right now. Both will require a computer/laptop, audio/video capabilities, a printer/scanner, and high speed internet. A headset may be recommended. Also, try networking with friends, family, and communities for potential employment.
I wish you the best in your endeavors, Dr. B

Angela D. recommends the following next steps:

Contact university
Website job searching - FlexJobs, Ziprecruiter, Indeed, LinkedIn, etc. + local newspaper(s)

Jane’s Answer

It seems that working remotely, via computer at home, is available only for already established employees. Perhaps I'm wrong. Local grocery stores seem to be taking on new hires, and they are probably willing to work around school hours once the shutdown is over and you are able to return to the University.

Jane recommends the following next steps:

See if a grocery store near you needs help.

Erik’s Answer

Adecco is one of the nation's largest temp agencies. Adecco is hired by employers to help fill positions that can either be temporary or even full time. Temp positions can sometimes lead into more permanent roles. I'd reach out to them and forward them your resume. They would know more about work at home opportunities. https://www.adeccousa.com/

Deborah (Dee)’s Answer

With many elementary and high school students attending school remotely, the need for tutors is very high. In many cases tutoring can be done remotely. You can post an add on Craigslist or ask around if there are friends/ families in your neighborhood or building that need tutors. Tutors also make a good salary. You may also be able to tutor for your college in the fall. Good luck!

Sonja’s Answer

Currently the majority of the Verizon Media workforce is remote - and i believe in the future a certain amount of remote working flexibility will be provided. I would check out internship opportunities being offered as they will provide some good hands on experience in your field and also provide the opportunity to build your professional network and maybe in the future get a full-time role with the company.

Best of luck,
Sonja

Dennis’s Answer

Look on linkedin, that would be a great place to start. There's a lot of internship opportunities, although unfortunately it may be a little late to get engaged for this summer. I've found linked in, though, very helpful at bringing together students, hiring companies, and social networking to get your name out there. Good luck!

Neha’s Answer

Hi Nancy,

There are a lot of companies in the IT/telecom sector that are offering remote intern opportunities. If you do a quick search on various job portals like Indeed, LinkedIn, you would be able to see many co-op opportunities. You could narrow your research based on your education background. 

For example, I searched for Software Engineer Intern opportunities in Texas on LinkedIn or just google and got a bunch of open roles https://www.linkedin.com/jobs/search/?geoId=102748797&keywords=software%20engineer%20intern&location=Texas%2C%20United%20States

https://www.google.com/search?q=software+engineer+intern+opportunities+in+USA&oq=software+engineer+intern+opportunities+in+USA&aqs=chrome..69i57j33i22i29i30.11186j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&ibp=htl;jobs&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwi81OjGmLLsAhXJPM0KHeb0BjoQiYsCKAJ6BAgeECg&sxsrf=ALeKk01rm_ibyo7RWygmuLBAacorxyOtLw:1602613507932#htivrt=jobs&htidocid=lj9NRqe-CcU3XvDxAAAAAA%3D%3D&fpstate=tldetail

Also, as part of the process, take some time to write a resume, add details about the projects you worked on, highlight relevant subjects you have studied, core technical skills or add any teaching assistantship you were offered. Also, update/create a LinkedIn profile.

Look for the Careers page on the company's website and if you find any relevant open roles, apply directly at the site.

Hope this helps! Feel free to ask any questions you may have.

All the best,
Neha

Hi Nancy,

All Tech companies are doing remote work. The company I work for implemented remote working since 10 years ago! So the "new normal" is not a big change for us.
