Although working from home has long been an option that many have chosen, the last year has made it possible to get a ton of jobs to work remotely. If you’re a stay-at-home mom looking for a way to supplement your household income or even to provide it, here are some great options to choose from.
Whether you lost your job because of the Covid-19 pandemic and want to work from home, or you like the freedom that working remotely and on your own terms brings, here are some jobs that allow you to choose your own hours so that you can work on your own schedule.
Normal life seems to be closer due to the massive vaccination campaign that is being carried out, but perhaps, these months have made you see that working from home is something you want to adopt permanently. If this is your case, or if you want to generate money while the perfect job appears, these jobs could be the solution.
1. Freelance writer, editor, or proofreader
One of the best stay-at-home jobs for moms is to do freelance writing or editing. If you have been trained as a writer or editor, then this is a great option for you.
If you are good at grammar and have an eye for spotting mistakes, you can also work as a proofreader. Many times people can’t find their own mistakes and are willing to pay good money for someone else to do it.
2. Data entry
If you have an eye for detail and are a good typist, a data entry position may be a good choice for you. In this job, you enter information into a company’s data system.
As a transcriptionist, you type recorded meetings and other audio material. If you are a fast and accurate typist, you can earn good money with this choice.
4. Social media manager
As a social media manager, you manage social media accounts for one or more clients. If you are good at social media and enjoy surfing the web, this could be the perfect job for you. You might publish (or write) content for various platforms, as well as work in other ways (such as through advertising) to increase social media reach and followers.
5. Be a translator
If you know a second language, this can be the job for you. Translators are in high demand for many languages, and skilled translators can charge great rates. Some of the most high-demand languages include Spanish, French, German, Arabic, and Russian. Check out Upwork and indeed.com for opportunities
