The time when we had to scan the pages of a newspaper’s classified ads for a job is well behind us. Social media has enabled us so we would be able to do it while doing what it is that we most often do and that is to surf the internet. No longer do any of us have to go through any painstaking process if one is in such need of employment. Waking up early, setting up a plan, printing a hundred resumes, falling in line, being physically exhausted with all the running around and being emotionally exhausted because after all the effort, you will continually face rejection – are all now conveniently tucked within our recent history thanks to technology and our advancements with web 2.0.
We now live in a world where our job hunting pilgrims have been made so much easier. One only has to find an employer on job posting sites, set up an appointment and you have gotten rid of most of the process. If you want to take it one step further, you can even apply to an online job post that pertains to a workload that can be done while at home.
Here’s a list of the top 10 stay at home jobs that a person searching for an online job would usually bump into.
Virtual Assistant – every time you find a VA job post that would stand for virtual assistant. This is so much in demand to employers because of the wide range of skills that may or may be covered by the job description.
Medical Transcriptionist – the job involves listening to the dictations of a doctor for health solutions and their prescriptions. If you think that’s easy, think again, doctors may have unusual accents, fast speakers and might even be eating something while you’re at it. That is why good medical transcriptionists are always well compensated.
