Have you ever tried to find work-from-home jobs as a student studying abroad but were confused on how to go about it? You are not alone! When I started my freelancing journey as a foreign student in the US, it took me about 3 months to figure out which website I could get jobs from. However, you don’t need to go through the same process to get remote work as this article is here to guide you.
Most study abroad students who have been working remotely in the U.S during the coronavirus pandemic would prefer to continue doing so. While many employers are green-lighting this type of flexibility for the short-term – or in some cases, even longer-term – other employers require workers to return to the office.
This means that if you want to keep working from home, you may need to find and land a job that’s specifically designated as remote work to help you study. In this post, I’d be sharing with you some of the best websites to find work-from-home jobs.
How To Find The Best Work From Home Jobs
1. Remote Work Hub
Offering only full-time remote-jobs, Remote Work Hub‘s homepage claims that the site provides its users with 10 times more jobs and better filters than the No. 1 remote job board. The site was started by Cam Woodsum, who says he believes working online from anywhere you want “is the fastest shortcut to freedom and that freedom is the fastest shortcut to happiness and living a great life.”
In addition to being able to browse categories to find certain types of jobs on Remote Work Hub, you can also set up job alerts, read blog posts and learn more about digital nomading.
2. Remote OK
Listing remote jobs in software development, customer support, marketing, design, and other industries, the Remote OK site states that its job board reaches more than 1 million remote workers. The site also includes a worker directory, which is a global talent pool of over 5,000 remote workers and a live ranking of the hiring trends of top remote companies.
iFreelance is one of the best work from home jobs websites on this list. The platform allows professionals to offer their services by simply registering. After registration, you can either wait to be hired or start applying for jobs by surfing the opportunities available on the website. But, something that makes iFreelance stand out on this list is that they do not charge any commission from freelancers, you get to keep all your earnings on the platform.
4. Hubstaff Talent
Hubstaff Talent is a work-from-home job website that typically connects freelancers with businesses and companies. The platform is great for people looking for long-term engagements, because you typically get to work with businesses, meaning that commitments are usually longer than on other freelancing platforms. To start offering your services on Hubstaff, you need to create an account.
5. Simply Hired
Simply Hired is a great platform for freelancers to offer their skills from the comfort of their homes. An amazing feature that Simply Hired has is that you can apply for jobs that are close to your location.
