The days are blending together and it’s becoming increasingly more and more like an episode from the Twilight Zone. Whether the anxiety level is low or high, a job seeker’s plight never ends. We know unemployment is the highest it’s ever been at approximately 10 million individuals and now is the time everyone is re-evaluating.

Here are some resources to look for mostly remote or work from home jobs. These are some unique sites that can help you find new ways to make some money by doing surveys, online beta testing, virtual assistant or even transcription.

Keep networking in addition to checking out these specific sites. To stay motivated, it can be helpful to schedule calls with former colleagues not to ask for jobs but to let them know you are in the market. Also, keep up on business or industry-specific trends to stay knowledgable about what is going on in the world. Zoom calls with other friends who are looking for work to share leads are also helpful. Keep a daily schedule and make sure to take breaks to walk. As always, take good self-care to keep your mind sharp and clear. You got this.
