You may be unsure about what exactly you want to do after graduation, but you do know one thing: you want to work remotely. Remote jobs are popular because they eliminate the need to commute, allow you to have a more flexible schedule, and mean you don’t need to relocate if you want to take a job on the other side of the country. Some positions in particular are extra likely to be available as remote jobs. Here are a few to consider.
1. Digital Marketer
Since being a digital marketer is all about running campaigns online, it makes sense that many positions are remote. You’ll be responsible for conducting market research, coming up with a strategy to improve awareness, and maintaining the image of the brand. Your duties may include creating digital marketing calendars, monitoring the brand’s online presence, and creating reports to explain your results.
2. Project Manager
As a project manager, you’ll be responsible for making sure your team members know what they should be doing, sticking to a budget, and ensuring everyone meets their deadlines. Your tasks will be different every day, which means you need to possess a variety of skills, including communication skills, creativity to meet stakeholders’ expectations, and risk management skills. Remote project managers stay in touch with their team and clients through video conferencing, project management, and instant messaging apps.
If you have a good head for numbers, you may like to consider becoming an accountant. As well as helping the company you work for make smart financial decisions, you’ll be managing day-to-day financial tasks to ensure records remain accurate and meet legal standards.
Many recruiters now work remotely because the candidates they are assessing are located all over the country, perhaps even all over the globe. In addition to conducting interviews, you will be responsible for creating job posts, assessing the resumes you receive, and reaching out to professionals you feel may be a good fit for a job.
5. Cybersecurity Analyst
There is often no requirement for IT professionals to be on site because they work with computer systems they can access from anywhere. One such job is a cybersecurity analyst. You’ll need to search for vulnerabilities in the network and infrastructure to prevent the business from suffering an attack in the future.
You may have discovered you enjoy teaching if you’ve been tutoring other students to make some extra money at university. Not only can you turn this into a career after you graduate, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to work remotely. There are opportunities to work with students of all ages and tutor in virtually any subject. You’ll need to read your students’ textbooks to understand what they’re learning, create lesson plans to help them overcome difficulties, and come up with homework ideas. When you give sessions over video chat, you’ll be able to meet with students back to back no matter where they’re located.
7. Business Developer
As a business developer, you’ll be collaborating with many departments at your company to improve brand awareness, improve revenue, and grow the business. Communication skills are critical: in addition to coordinating with executives at your business, you’ll need to reach out to clients to pitch, negotiate terms, and maintain relationships. The job also involves a great deal of research, such as about customers, competitors, and opportunities. Although a business developer has a wide variety of duties, it’s typically possible to carry them all out remotely.
Even though there are now more remote jobs available, the market can be competitive. To stand out from other candidates, you need to study hard to graduate with the best GPA possible.
