10 WFH Jobs To Look Out For In A Virtual Career Fair
Jobstreet content teamupdated on 13 April, 2022

This COVID-19 pandemic has made the world embrace a new normal way of life. Even the landscape of work has taken a radical change. The WFH jobs, also known as telecommuting, used to be reserved for freelancers like foreign language teachers, content writers, program developers, and sales reps. There is a paradigm shift that has brought up the numbers for remote work. In Jobstreet alone, one-fifth of the postings are work-from-home.

Companies inevitably adopted this change to remain afloat. As jobs transition from face-to-face to online, so did job searching and career fairs. This new trend in employment match-making is a convenient, one-stop-shop platform where candidates meet potential employers in one roof. Be ready with your online applications and virtual interviews, but first, know the ten best jobs available in the market that can be done from the comforts of your home.

  1. IT Professionals

Almost everyone in this field is a potential work-from-home professional with good pay to boot from web developers to software programmers and data encoders to systems analysts. Given their virtual work environment, they thrive very well remotely.

  1. Content Producers

This field encompasses the wide world of media and production. Writers, video editors, graphic artists, sound designers, music producers, anyone who creates content or are part of a team can comfortably do this from the confines of their home.

  1. Virtual Assistants

Virtual assistants came into being in the mid-90s and made life more convenient for their bosses, usually CEOs or anyone in top management. The Philippines is a goldmine for VA-seekers because of our command of the English language and proficiency for things online.

  1. Therapists and Counsellors

People in need of counseling and therapy have online meeting and chat platforms such as Zoom, Google Hangout, Viber, Whatsapp, and Messenger to thank. It is not only convenient, but these virtual sessions have been proven effective in helping the distressed. Its accessibility and one-on-one feature provide clients with a much needed emotional outlet, more so during these tough times!

  1. Legal and Paralegal Assistance

Legal counsel need not be done in an office as this pandemic has proven. Cases have been heard and solved in the safety of our homes.

  1. TeachersÂ

Even before the lockdown imposed work-from-home into the system, online education has been on an upward rise. ESL and other language courses, homeschooling, and tutorial services have held a comfortable space in the online universe.

  1. Finance and Accounting Services

The company's financial data and processes like maintenance of books on receivables, payables, daily expenses, and payroll are dependent on accountants and financial specialists. Bookkeeping, accounting, and auditing are some of the jobs that fall under this category.

  1. Customer Service and Sales Rep

Customer Service Representatives interact with customers on behalf of an organization. As company representatives, they are in charge of the company and product info, handle complaints, appease irate customers, take orders, and process returns and refunds. Their communication platforms are voice calls and chats, which are right at home with remote work.

  1. Digital Marketer

Reaching customers with the use of the net is a digital marketer's mission. There are several tools available to the marketer to connect and engage his audience, there are email, social media, content marketing, and online search platforms, to name a few.

  1. Interpreter/Translator

Interpreters and translators are required to have proficiency in both the languages they are working on. They convert texts from one language to the other.

Whatever your field of specialization, there are the traits and work ethics that employers most revere. Hard work, dependability, self-motivation, organization, and honesty are the all-time favorites.
