Because we’re currently in the middle of a pandemic, pursuing goals and dreams is extra tough for the fresh grads. Not only did they experience online classes, they also didn’t get to have the graduation rites, aka one of the most awaited college traditions to ever exist. Now, they have to enter the workforce while layoffs are being made left and right and majority of offices are shifting into a work-from-home setting.
Didn’t mean to dampen your spirit by that first paragraph. While most of the fresh grads won’t really get to set out on an exciting journey to build their careers, it’s not entirely hopeless. There are still ways to earn some funds for your everyday needs or for future goals. Below is a list of websites where you can look for freelance and online jobs. Friendly note: Always be on the lookout for potential scammers. While many have found legit job opportunities online, plenty of fraudulent opportunists still abound.
