It's a sad reality that when the global pandemic started early last year, several industries and careers were hit hard. Companies had to adjust, employees had to take on more tasks than usual, and some even lost their jobs. According to the Philippine Statistics Authority, "The country's unemployment rate in April 2021 was estimated at 8.7 percent." That's around 4.14 million jobless Filipinos.

This past year has been challenging and uncertain. Dealing with finances is probably everyone's major concern now. As a way to get by, more people are actually getting into side hustles, small businesses, and freelance jobs. And with the ongoing pandemic, it seems like this is an option worth considering. There are opportunities that allow you to work from home, manage your own schedule, and more. In fact, Charm de Leon of Ready2Adult PH shared a few freelancing jobs you can look into.
