Beat the competition with your skills and not lowball rates.
The COVID-19 pandemic brought lockdowns and stay-at-home orders for everyone. Aside from essential workers, many employees had to work from home. But with restrictions easing and the world returning to normal, the WFH lifestyle may not last that much longer.
If your workplace is among many that chose a return to the office, you may want to look for a new job. For those who enjoy WFH, you may want to read on.
WFH doesn’t have to end
While many businesses are considering a return to the office, working from home doesn’t have to end for you. As long as you have the skills and the WFH equipment, there’s a job out there for you.
The good news is that there are many platforms out there that offer WFH jobs. The even better news is that you don’t have to worry about bidding. Some freelance platforms come with lowball rates and a need to outbid fellow jobseekers. But there are websites where you can get a permanent job working from home.
At first glance, LinkedIn is a social network for working professionals. It’s also a great platform for job hunting.
What’s great about searching for jobs on LinkedIn is that they now list whether work is on-site, hybrid, or remote. You can also indicate that you’re open to new opportunities to get more visibility with recruiters.

Things to keep in mind
Like any regular job, make sure the required skills, salary, and benefits all align. Keep in mind that many remote jobs don’t offer government-mandated benefits and healthcare. The good news is that you can file government-related payments on your own. And you can buy prepaid healthcare for yourself. So make sure you factor those in when negotiating for your salary!
Best of luck to those who are job hunting!
