One important thing that the pandemic has shown us about work is that it doesn’t have to be done in an office. In fact, being able to work in your pyjamas and not having to commute probably makes you even more productive.
But what kinds of jobs can you do from home? You might have thought there was a lot of writing and marketing involved. Sure, customer service. Maybe engineering or IT. But no, FlexJobs says that there are many specialised remote jobs that you could be doing right now if you were qualified.
Educational Video Instructor
You can make materials for a course and teach it to more than one person from the comfort of your bedroom. You can help other people learn a new skill by making your own lessons and giving lectures from your own home. To be eligible, you need to be able to speak English well and have some experience making educational videos.

You need to know how to use radio, podcasts, or other audio-based media, as well as how to stream audio content.
TikTok’s video content is collected and planned for.
Even if you became a great at-home barista during the pandemic, all that time you spent on TikTok could be making you a lot of money.
