It is that time of year, commencement season! Congratulations to all the graduates as you take the next journey. It is the time to celebrate and consider your next phase in life. If you determined that the remote lifestyle is for you, please keep reading.
As someone who is in the upper age range of millennials, I understand that we distinctively think of the workplace uniquely. We value elements such as flexibility, independence, creative freedom and professional growth. Honestly, we are probably the generation that anticipates these elements from employers the most.
I remember when I first graduated from college remote job opportunities were rare. Of course, I managed, but I was never entirely happy. Today, I am delighted with the work I do. I can enjoy the flexibility of my work and have the creative outlet I crave.
If you are having a hard time locating entry-level positions that offer the flexibility element you desire, I am here to help.
As a Workforce Development Strategist, I am fortunate to see all the incredible changes to the job market and expansion of the remote workforce. Here are a variety of jobs that can be remote and often have entry-level openings.
1) Online English Teacher or Tutor
In these roles, you will be working one-on-one or in groups with children or adults looking to master the English language. The requirements will vary depending on the company. However, a BS or BA degree and being a native English speaker can get you in the door.
2) Online School Teacher
This role will allow you to teach from your home office. Sometimes virtual school teaching openings will consider first-time teachers with direct student teaching experience. However, you will need certification in the hiring state.
3) Online Writer
If you are interested in writing and earned a degree in marketing, advertising or journalism, there are writing and editing positions that are remote. People in these roles develop content for blogs, websites, social media and magazines. It will be helpful to understand SEO and know the latest trends in digital marketing to be successful.
I will continue to add to this list as we see more fitting entry-level roles for recent graduates. Congratulations to you all!
