Stay-at-home jobs have become increasingly popular post-pandemic. Even though one could have performed the positions listed here at home before the pandemic, many have become more popular in recent years.
Organizations have quickly pivoted to full-time remote work where you can stay at home to get the job done. Below is a list of jobs you can consider if you have the interest, skills, and qualifications to apply.
The average salary for a software developer is $127,228. However, suppose you don’t have a degree in software development and are looking to break into the field. In that case, plenty of boot camp-type options can teach a person how to write code in a relatively short period.
The average salary for a Data Scientist is $141,305. This career typically requires a degree in computer science, economics, finance, or other field related to data science. In addition, the position requires the unique ability to write code, analyze information, and effectively communicate findings.
The average salary for a full-time editor is $54,487. Corporate editing positions typically require a degree in English or a communications-related field. Freelance editors’ jobs are based more so on reputation, so it may be an industry you can get into if you have a natural talent for editing but not the degree.
According to Indeed, the average salary for a blogger is $15.60 per hour. Again, the blogging industry is very top-heavy, with the top 10% of bloggers making most of the money. Many people treat blogging as a hobby and are not trying to make money, but even those trying to make it a business can find it challenging to make a full-time salary from it.
Virtual assistants make an average hourly wage of $22.11. Since Virtual Assistants are usually contractor positions, you’d have to find other means for typical company benefits such as health insurance and 401k matching.
