Online teaching and administration openings are increasingly becoming available for those who prefer to work remotely. As an educator myself, I decided to create an ongoing list of Online Schools, Universities and Companies that recruit to fill remote friendly jobs in Higher Ed.
Between schools that are operating 100% online, companies that support online learners and even traditional schools that have online courses there is a need to hire remote professionals. Students are eager and seek learning experiences that are flexible and convenient. There is an ever growing demand for remote education professionals. There are virtual opportunities for professors, instructors, teacher aids, admission advisors, career services specialists and more.
If you are looking for part-time or full-time work from your home office, continue to read. This post may surprise you with the type of online education positions available for Higher Ed professionals.
Online HigherEd Professional Opportunities from Home
If you want to use your Higher Ed professional experience online, the first thing you should look for Higher Ed positions is by examining virtual schools and colleges that have online programs for openings. Many times these opportunities are just like working on campus but working virtual because students are not onsite.
I highly suggest you keep your eyes open for universities that are embracing online programs for students that require flexibility in the learning process. This will lead to more opportunities for online employment options for professionals like you.
I keep up with listings for higher education professional by setting up alerts at Indeed.com, HigherEd Jobs, and Flexjobs. If you use the keyword area on these sites and browse by “remote,” “work from home,” “home office” along with “instructor,” “career services, or “admissions.” If you set up alerts the next time an online education job is listed, you will always be in the know. Before you know it, you will be on your way to helping students from your home office.
