Steve’s Answer

I have been teaching online for 19 years. Teaching different subjects online is a very rewarding profession. If you do not have a degree, you can offer to teach subjects through websites like coursera.org or udemy.com. Writing a blog on a subject and promoting the blog is also an excellent way to network and capture an audience on a certain topic.

You can try your hand with freelancing. Some of the most demanded skills right now are Digital Marketing, Tutoring (in the subject that you love) or even being a Social Media Manager of your favorite 'grammer/ youtuber. Pick anyone up and you're good to go!

Paul’s Answer

I agree with Albert. I have found some of the most legitimate online jobs for college students is in the area of online tutoring.

There are a variety of subjects you can pursue. Everything from English, History, Math and other STEM subjects. I would go online and investigate the various sights. You would need to set up an account and some of the site administrators could need proof of your academic abilities.

Other online sites also need writers and editors. So, if you have good English and writing skills, this also might be a good option.

There is usually competition for various work assignments. So, get ready to submit bids and market yourself to potential clients. It is like any other business environment. The best bid and marketer usually gets the job.

Paul recommends the following next steps:

Go online and review online tutoring, writing and editing sites
Research the academic requirements needed for online jobs
Set up an online account

Hi Shakayla,

Feel free to take a look at LinkedIn / Angelist / Indeed for more traditional "jobs".

You could also signup to be an online tutor like on Varsity Tutors or another site. Good luck!

There are tons of remote jobs! I'd use LinkdIn to search and filter on remote work. I have been telecommuting for my job for 15 years in Systems Analysis and Programming. My friends have jobs doing remote teaching, accounting, book keeping, and report analysis.
