by 21ninety

Are you a working mom who seeks to stay home with your kids?  Are you a stay-at-home mom who is interested in finding good remote jobs that earn a steady income?  Well, you're in luck because there are numerous opportunities that exist.  

One idea is to work as a virtual assistant.  Many companies hire them to complete administrative tasks such as scheduling meetings, responding to emails, making appointments, and conducting research.  

Here are additional work-from-home opportunities for moms.


Graphic Designer

For those who are skilled in creating beautiful brochures, newsletter banner art, and Youtube channel logos,  you should work from home as a graphic designer.  The good news is that you don't have to attend an expensive four-year university to learn the latest design trends and techniques.  There are online universities and veteran graphic designers who can teach you what you need to know.  To get your first few clients, sign up with freelancing sites such as Upwork and Fivver. Your local classifieds might also advertise openings.


Online Translator

More companies are expanding their operations overseas, and this means that there will be a need for online translators.  Some main employers of online translators include:

Appen

Language Link

Lionbridge

Rev

Verbal Ink

To be an effective translator, you need to have strong writing and research skills.  You'll also need advanced knowledge of the language you're translating, and cultural knowledge of the regions that the language originated from.


Online Tutoring

If you walked away from the traditional classroom but still desire to educate students, you can work as an online tutor.  Companies such as Chegg, VIPKID, and Care.com often hire online tutors for a variety of grades and subjects.  Many online tutoring companies require you to have at least a bachelor's degree along with teaching certification although some companies don't.  The good thing about this job is that you can work flexible hours, and you are helping others succeed right from home.


Social Media Manager

Don't waste the hours you spend on social media during the week.  Consider a career as a social media manager.  A lot of businesses recognize the importance of social media marketing but don't always have the time or skills to do it.  You can offer your services by sending professional emails stating the experience you have working in any aspect of social media.  Also, apply for remote social media jobs on sites such as FlexJobs, Career Builder, LinkedIn, and even local government civil service websites.
