The aftermath of the current pandemic has created a stronger desire by many to work from home so that they can have more time with their families while earning a steady income.  Some work-from-home opportunities are scams, and you want to look out for them when applying for jobs.  Some good websites to visit for remote jobs include Flex Jobs, Indeed, CareerBuilder, and Monster.  If you have relatives and friends who work from home, ask them if their employers have openings for remote jobs.  Here are some of the best work-from-home jobs.

Online Proofreading

Are you obsessed with proper grammar in yours or others’ writing?  If so, then you could work as an online proofreader.  In order to succeed at this job, you’ll need an advanced or intermediate knowledge of the English language, an understanding of the different formats used for research papers, and you should have strong communication and time management skills.  If you’re new to proofreading, take some online courses and read good books on the topic.  Practice proofreading by printing out sample pages of proofreading assignments.

Pet Sitting

Do you have only one pet and you want him to have more furry friends while making money at the same time?  Then consider working as a pet sitter.  Depending on your clients, you might watch pets for just one day, a week, or even a few months.  This is because there are clients who need a temporary sitter while they go on vacation, but there are other clients who want a long-term sitter.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, you can earn between $11.00 and $17.00.

Legal Assistants

If you have experience in the legal profession, consider a career as an online legal assistant.  Legal assistants investigate and gather facts of cases, organize important documents, and filing briefs on behalf of lawyers.  Legal assistants have to be organized and pay attention to detail when doing assignments.


Copywriting is not the same as traditional freelance writing or journalism.  Copywriting involves the writing of copy for the purpose of advertising products for different companies.  As a copywriter, you might write sales landing pages, product pages, ad copy, and About Us pages for clients.  Good copywriters possess strong research and organizational skills, understand the client’s target audience, and excellent writing skills.

Start a Youtube Channel

If you want a source of passive income, then start a YouTube channel.  Before you create it, figure out if there will be an audience for the kind of channel you’re interested in. You can research the top YouTube channel niches and see if any of them are similar to your idea.  From there, you want to research video ideas and create a few videos.  Subscribe to the channels of people who teach how to succeed at YouTube.  Read blogs from successful Youtubers and take courses.  You can earn money through ads shown on your channel,  selling your own products on your channel, or through affiliate marketing.

In conclusion, these opportunities provide a steady income and flexible schedules.
