Remote Work – September 2021
Hi dear friends! It’s been a while since I updated this space, but with the decline of the golden days of the ESL industry upon us, I thought it would help to create a one-stop resource for all the remote jobs I may have mentioned on my Instagram. This of course is not a complete list, but may help give you an idea of where to start! I will try my best to include location information when possible and link what I can. Remember with 7.9 billion people in the world, it’s fully possible to find a job for you!
Seasonal Customer Service – U.S. Based
It’s September and I know many of you are already thinking about the holidays, and so are companies recruiting for seasonal help! Some of these are region-specific, and will say a certain city, but available throughout the state, so click on the links to see if there’s an opening where you live!
Williams-Sonoma – Customer Service Representative. Pay is $14 per hour with a 40% discount.
Victoria’s Secret – Virtual Seasonal Customer Service Representative. Pay is between $13-$15 per hour, with 40% off at Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works.
Gap – Seasonal Chat Specialist
Amazon – I don’t see any currently available, but keep an eye on them, as it seems they hire for help every year.
Companies Hiring Remotely
This is by far not even a complete list, but maybe give you some ideas! These are just a few remote jobs I have come across. If you are overseas, but are eligible to work in North America and still have a North American address and bank account, you may be still be able to apply for some of these positions. Just let the companies know you are willing to work their hours, or you maybe be even more qualified because you can cover hours others can’t!
- BookNook – You may have heard of this US. based e-learning company if you’re with VIPkid. They have a few positions they are hiring for, all remote, so give them a gander!
- Paper.co e-learning tutoring company. They have quite a few remote positions open both in the front as a tutor, or behind the scenes in customer service or admin.
- Victoria’s Secret – Virtual Bilingual Customer Service Representative. Victoria’s Secret makes the list again with this full-time position. If you are able to read, write, and speak in English and Spanish, this fully remote position may be for you. $15 per hour base pay.
- eXp World Holdings – I don’t know too much about this one, but in the Female Digital Nomads Facebook group, a person who works for them says they are growing and constantly hiring for remote positions.
Remote Work Websites
The first three on the list are ones I have personally browsed.
- Flexjobs– Worldwide. This is a paid website, but I think it has value as it’s user-friendly. You can narrow down listings by job category or region/country. If you do a google search for “flexjobs promo codes,” you can often find 50% off!
- remote.co – Smaller, curated listings. Seems to be a lot of U.S.-based jobs.
- weworkremotely – Worldwide
The ones below are not ones that I have used personally, but have seen listed elsewhere, to the reliability of them, I can’t verify. But let me know if you find any gems on them!
- Hire My Mom – Caters primarly towards work from home moms in the U.S. Some opportunities can be applies for at no cost, but some, similiar to flexjobs, requires you to pay a membership fee to, to see whom to contact.
- Working Nomads
- Authentic Jobs – “job board for designers, developers, and creative pros.
Side-Hustles for Your Side-Hustles
These are ones that you will not be quitting your job for but can help you get an extra dollar here and there when you have a moment to help out.
- Telus Ai– Worldwide, positions differ region-to-region. Although they do have positions that tote 20 hours per week, some of these pay net30, meaning it could be the following month or two until you get paid. Also, tasks available will depend on how many other people are working on it at the same time as you.
- Appen Worldwide microtasks. Make sure to check in from time to time to see if any new projects have become available. Some can be done in person and some right from your phone.
- Userlytics – Remote User. Testing Platform
- UserTesting – online product testing
I hope this list helps. Have you had success on any of these or are there any I should add to the list? Let me know!
