Career Options You Can Pursue Online

 

We are spending more time online than ever. With many people spending the majority of their waking 

hours at home due to the pandemic, new opportunities to make money and pursue career options have 

emerged. Whether you’ve lost your job recently, your workload has decreased, or you’re keen to 

 follow a new path, here are some options you can pursue online. 


Trading

Trading has become increasingly popular due to increased accessibility via online platforms. In days 

gone by, you had to be a professional trader to get involved, but today, almost anyone can give trading 

a go. Before you lay out any money or make any transactions, it’s crucial to do some research, read up 

on different types of trading such as share CFDs and get a feel for how different mechanisms work. It’s 

also important to ensure you are aware of rules and legal restrictions. Make use of demos, explore 

different sites and consider working with a reputable, trustworthy, experienced trader if you’re a 

beginner. Trial versions enable you to see how things work before you part with any money. Trading is 

a popular side hustle because it’s a flexible means of making money that can fit in with existing 

commitments, but there is potential to turn a hobby into a full-time job.

Writing

Blogging enables anyone to be a writer, and it’s a great way to explore subjects that interest you, to 

engage with others online, to raise issues that matter to you and to generate an income. Writing can be 

cathartic, but it can also be lucrative. If you enjoy writing, you have a talent, and people seem to 

respond well to what you have to say, it’s worth considering trying to monetize your new hobby. You 

can start discovering income streams such as sponsored adverts and affiliate links, or you could 

advertise your skills to benefit businesses or other bloggers who are looking to enhance and diversify 

their content with guest and contributed posts. Building a following is key when trying to establish a 

successful blog and promote growth. Define your target audience, create original content that will 

appeal to the readers you’re looking to attract and take advantage of opportunities to build virtual 

networks on social media.

Coaching and consulting

Many people have used the unexpected break brought about by the Covid-19 crisis to develop new 

skills and learn. If you have qualifications, skills and experience, you could use them to boost your 

income and create new career options. If you can speak a foreign language or play an instrument, or 

you have expertise in digital marketing, accounting, web design, life coaching or personal training, for 

example, you could coach online, run webinars and produce course content and learning resources or 

offer virtual one-to-one or group sessions.

Statistics show that we are spending more time online than ever. Surfing the web isn’t just about 

whiling away the hours and checking what is going on in the world. It can also open doors in terms of 

new career paths and opportunities to utilize your talent, knowledge, skills and experience to increase 

your income.
