The pandemic has revealed an important truth about work: it does not have to be done in an office. In fact, not having to commute and being able to work in your pyjamas may increase your productivity.
But what kinds of jobs are available at home? You might have assumed it was a lot of marketing and writing. Sure, there’s customer service. Perhaps IT or engineering. But, according to FlexJobs, there are a variety of specialised remote jobs that (if you are qualified) you could be doing right now.
