Keeping with the theme of internet focus jobs, next up is content moderation in the simplest terms it means looking at the content posted online and determining whether it needs certain criteria or should be taken down. some of you have heard about the issues the team of contracted moderators that works with Facebook experienced, mostly due to the graphic nature of the content they had to review.
The world of moderating is bigger than just Facebook, think about how many different forums, boards, and comment sections there are on the web and almost all of them need to be moderated. We found several websites hiring right now and we think if you are mature, intelligent, reliable, and ethical you got a good chance to become a moderator.
$4 – $10 per hour
If moderation is not for you but you’re either good at certain subjects in school or great at picking up a subject and explaining it to the others, then online tutoring might be the perfect job for you. In addition to tutoring on regular subjects like Math, Science, and History there are also lots of opportunities for tutoring in English. We found many jobs that require you to have conversations with people in English. Correcting mistakes and helping to make your student feel comfortable conversing in English.
$6 – $8 per hour
While we’re on the topic of language if you are fluent in a second language if you are then you should also be looking at translation jobs online. Okay, so there are expert translators in the world who are highly skilled but they often only take on huge or difficult projects, and that leaves a lot of smaller and easier translation jobs for the average run-of-the-mill multilingual work from home person.
One job we also found online was translating English to Korean, the job description was; simple text translation, the articles do not have to be translated 100% exactly using the dictionary etcetera, the sense and logic of sentences must be preserved. That’s it! so if you have a good grasp of Korean and English you can do the job easily. We found a bunch of similar jobs, and while $6 – $8 an hour isn’t that great, it is the kind of job you can do at home from your computer with some music playing in the background.
Website and App Testing Jobs
$10 – $20
Speaking of jobs you can do while relaxing with some music playing, search for website and app testing jobs, and you will find a bunch of companies that hire people to test websites. This is one of the easiest jobs we found since all required to do is go to a website for or use an app and then provide some feedback as to what your experience was like. Did all the functions work? Is it easy to navigate? Etc., the problem with these gigs is that they’re sporadic, but if you sign off to multiple companies out there offering the service you may find yourself getting regular work. The pay is usually $10 for 20 minutes of work. Not a bad hourly rate to fill your workdays to another person who once did that
$6 per hour
Similar to testing jobs, surveys are another great work from home jobs. Yeah, you get paid just for completing surveys. There are plenty of them out there but we should warn you that this is probably the lowest paying of all the jobs on the list, but it’s still extra money and just about anyone can do it. One of the biggest issues with this work is that many of the websites will not pay you in cash but in some form of a gift card without or vouchers, not an ideal situation when you just lost your job and your landlord won’t accept a Cheesecake Factory gift card instead of rent. Another issue is that we have seen lots of warnings about fake or fishy companies using the allure of easy money to steal information from or scam people. We found several websites that claimed to have researched a bunch of survey websites and listed the best of them. Explaining just how much you should be getting paid but do your homework and looking into the websites companies before giving anyone your information.
According to one of these review sites, one website offered about 30 cents for each survey and the surveys took around 3 minutes to complete, that’s about $6 an hour If you could do surveys non-stop. Again, not the best, and the issue is you will probably be hard-pressed to find enough surveys to fill the day so don’t count on this as a full-time job, but again when you need money every little bit can help.
Finally, several websites offer miscellaneous freelance work and you’ll never know what will pop-up that relates to the skill that you have. There might be jobs posted right now for the skill that you have that you didn’t even know people paid for. Websites like Upwork, Flexjobs, and Craigslist are filled with random tasks people need to complete many of which you can do from home with minimal experience and don’t require a college degree. There are also sites like Remote.com that specializes in placing people in entry-level work from home jobs.
You may also want to consider reaching out to a professional even during a bad market where plenty of companies are hiring for positions to do the work remotely. There are lots of highly skilled workers right now sitting at home and the online world is your oyster and if you have some skills there is likely work out there for you and it can be done remotely sometimes temporarily. We hoped this helped you on your job hunt or maybe gave you some reassurance that even during this pandemic season, there are still jobs out there that you can do at your own home.
