A Guide to Find an Online Job: Things You Need to Know Before You Start Applying

I’ve been on some kind of writer’s block lately. I mean, I want to write a review of some new skincare products that I’ve purchased recently, but then I got too lazy to even take a proper pic for the post. I have a new project going on, and I’m so excited to publish this later, but it’s still in the planning phase.

Due to those excuses, I decided to write about working remotely again… And this time, I want to write a simple guide to find an online job. While there are so many free online resources about working remotely, I still occasionally get questions about where and how to find opportunities to work online.

So in this post, I’d share some things I know about online job based on my experience. Especially those things you need to know and do before you start applying for that job.

Now that I’ve been both in the position where I was a job-seeker as well as an employer, I’ll share my insights on how to land your first online gigs.

Some Tools and Resources I’ve Been Using to Work From Home

Recently, I made a poll about whether I should write about my everyday life or tools and resources I’ve been using to work from home… The latter got 69% vote, and I swear the number wasn’t like that on purpose. LOL.

Because of this, I’ve compiled a list of tools and platforms that are helpful for me since the first day of my work-from-home journey. Mind you, some of the platforms I’ve been using might also be the regular thing in your everyday life. But then again, maybe you didn’t know how to leverage it into a few bucks for some extra cash.

So I guess this post is here. Just a heads up though, I’m not so good at making a tutorial like a career coach or whatever. But I suppose I’m not so bad at explaining things for dummies. If you’re here, then I hope you’re a dummy that is looking forward to your betterment in some way. And moreover, hope this would help you too… Here we go!

Work From Home Jobs: How to Start and What You Can Do to Get Some Online Gigs

Recently, out of sudden some of my old friends reached out through Whatsapp and DM across social media to ask me how to start if they also want to work from home. I’m not saying that I’m an expert, but I was happy to give some insights about it. Things that I’ve done that worked, and how they could apply to their daily activity in order to get some remote jobs.

While some were excited to start the journey on their own, I got one of my friends responding with that annoying phrase: “Wow, that sounds like a lot of work.”

I was really hoping to just slap him on his face to get his reality checked. I mean, some people gotta work. And yes, sometimes we need to work hard so that people will see us living in comfort.

It annoyed me so much, but then it gave me some ideas to just compile it in a post to talk about how to start if you want to start working from home, and things you can do to get some gigs online. Here we go!

Some Reasons Why Being A Digital Nomad Is NOT For Everyone (And It Is Definitely Not For Me!)

When I was stuck in a corporate job with a paycheck slightly more than the minimum wage, I always got tempted with that propaganda to just quit the job and travel.

I am a single lady who mostly works from home now, and I’m glad that I never jumped into the bandwagon to quit the job and travel. As I quit the job to do some freelance job at home, I realized that being a digital nomad is not for everyone. And it is definitely not for me.

A couple of months ago, if you frequently read my blog then you probably know that I’ve done Borneo trip for a month. During that period, I got a chance to become a temporary digital nomad.

At some point, I’m just thankful that I don’t do this full time.
