Scott’s Answer

I would suggest using LinkedIn for your job search. Right now LinkedIn allows you to search for remote jobs specifically, so that helps weed out any jobs that require you to be there in-person. There are more remote jobs available now than there ever were before.

Nadeem’s Answer

Hey Akanksha,

Based on your background and experience, the most promising and secure jobs right now are into being a Developer in Cloud based systems like Salesforce. You can easily work remotely if your a Salesforce Developer.

'Salesforce' is a cloud based CRM platform (#1 in the world) offering a high variety of cloud based digital solutions to various clients across the global and industry. Due to the current economic situation caused by Covid and to make business resilient for survival in the coming years, businesses are investing a lot into digital transformations of their operations to allow firms to run as usual in any given crisis. Here cloud based platforms like Salesforce are playing a huge role in a firm's digital transformation. To implement and adopt Salesforce based solutions, firms need Salesforce skilled experts - like developers, solution architects, administrators, consultants etc that are certified in Salesforce technology. Their demand is forecasted to grow for the next 10 years and these skilled experts are not easy to replace as they would specialize into understanding a firm's business requirements and implement their needs via the Salesforce solutions available. A lot of time and effort is invested once a Salesforce expert is hired by a firm therefore replacing someone is not preferable. You can search Linkedin jobs and see the demand for Salesforce developer yourself.

You start learning and get certified by visiting this site https://trailhead.salesforce.com/en/home. Here all courses are super efficiently made by Salesforce themselves for anyone to learn (I mean anyone, who never went to school but can read english can learn). They also provide you with practise playgrounds to code and develop Salesforce CRM solutions. You can become a Salesforce Developer very quickly which this sort of materials, and its all FREE to learn! The only time you need to pay is for getting your developer certification. I would advise to practise a lot in your developer edition before doing the certifications.

Hope this advise helps!

Hi Akanksha,

Many big IT companies have started programs like Career Relaunch or Career Reboot.
These are the programs, specifically for women, who had to take career breaks for family.
You can google these words and you can see many options. I think these programs gives trainings also.

Other than this lot of companies have started offering remote jobs. You can check on LinkedIn and also other job sites.

Ayesha’s Answer

Hi Akanksha,
Just to add to the other answers here, I will suggest considering freelancing as well since it comes with the benefits of being your own boss, choosing your own projects and setting your own timings.
As Elizabeth mentioned, companies are increasingly hiring remotely so you can check platforms like LinkedIn for remote jobs based on your qualifications.

To the second aspect of your question, it's amazing to see that you are open to learning new skills! I recommend EdX and LinkedIn Learning for this.

Hope this helps!

Elizabeth’s Answer

Hi Akanksha,

Many jobs, especially in light of the global pandemic this year, have remote opportunities. You could also interview and simply ask if remote work is a possibility/negotiable. Some companies have even adopted a remote-first mindset, allowing their employees to have a choice from now on whether they want to come into an office or not (when they're reopened).

You may also consider if you're flexible on this request. What if the job would allow a flexible work-from-home schedule, with still some soft requirements to come into the office when necessary? Is that something you'd still be open to? Sometimes remote jobs require more travel (during normal times) so that's something to also consider if you dislike traveling for work.

What's also important is that you create good work from home habits. If you start somewhere remote that may eventually return to the office, a good history of remote work habits will help you make a case for yourself to remain remote. Having a routine, a good desk set up, and learning how your team works async and using collaboration tools will really help set yourself up for remote work success.

Best of luck!
