In the midst of a pandemic, many of us had to redefine how we earned our income and through what means we secured it. For this reason, the idea of job hunting and maintenance has changed for many of us, and that’s given us all something to think about we may not have considered in years.
While it is important to refresh your professional portfolio from time to time – by updating your CV, registering for the job-hunting sites and maybe even curating your own website, it’s also important to consider just what opportunities are out there, and to actively seek them where available.
So, how might this be defined in your own search for a potential career path, side hustle, or supplemental income? Earning is earning, after all. Sometimes, earning a reliable income comes second to having a second hobby or practice you can exercise to make sure you’re topping up your savings.
Whatever your priorities and whatever you’re comfortable with, it’s worth knowing what opportunities are out there for you. Please, consider:
Artistic portfolios can be a great means of attracting potential business. If you’re a skilled graphic designer but have been let go by your firm, for example, it could be that finding a means to offer your skills online could be worthwhile. Sites that offer freelance work to designs, browsing Reddit ‘for hire’ pages, or even streaming your work on Twitch and offering your services to those trying to build their brands can be a worthwhile use of your time. Artistic portfolios, even if that’s just showcasing your writing using a WordPress website, can often make a massive difference going forward. Don’t think this is tertiary – it isn’t.
There are many trading opportunities out there, especially if you consider the rise of cryptocurrency and the means by which to mine it yourself. However, one of the oldest and most impactful of trading measures, especially when using a reliable platform or broker, include trade Forex opportunities. This can provide you with a means in which to slowly invest and reinvest nominal sums to help you earn and build up your trading portfolio. This can serve as a solid means of growing a side fund in your spare time.
Freelance work is becoming more and more the norm, as outsourced professionals have been cut from most of their regular contract work efforts and are now expected to generate their own potential opportunities. It could be that through sites like Upwork you can provide your freelance writing value, or perhaps advertising your consulting opportunities may help you grow and become more interested in the overall development of your niche. Offering yourself through a public platform, keeping arrangements, developing work into fully delivered packages, this can help you become well-known and may enable you to start networking outside of these systems. That’s a great place to begin for many.
With this advice, we hope you can more easily enjoy the remote earning opportunities that are available to you.
