Globalization hits this generation’s new trend. The increase of technology and innovation make a high demand of living. The mass production of various products initiate a great impact in the price value of such due to the methods involved in producing them. We cannot deny the fact that the comfort and convenience we are experiencing now need and demand a lot of resources. Money is the primary problem in this society for us to meet this high standard of living.
In terms of the financial crisis that is going on today, people find a way to solve such issue through various jobs. Online jobs have become the top choice for many people. This is a new way to get an extra income, or even make it their primary source of income, in this world of high technology and surpassing involvement in social media. Unlike mainstream jobs, online jobs offer a lot of flexibility, adaptability and more options to increase your income or even create a business enterprise and become among those famous internet millionaires/billionaires!
They do not require too much from you, but offer a lot of opportunities nevertheless.
Here are the different types of people and the job suitability that they find themselves in:
The Working Student
Students nowadays prefer not to depend on their parents for their college tuition fees and daily financial allowance. They want to quickly get into the act of making a living not just for academic purposes but for other wants as well. The good thing about them having online jobs is that they become more responsible and diligent people. They realize easily from the get-go the importance of hard work and how to manage or balance their time between studies and their job without compromising both.
This is a very good experience for them as they will be more prepared than the average college student when it comes to getting a real job afterwards.
The Diligent Professional
Professionals are known as the “lucky guys” when it comes to online work and that’s because with the skills and experience they’ve gained over the years, they instantly become consultants or subject matter experts (SMEs) and collect a higher pay than others. Even though they work 8 hours a day, when they’ll come home after work, they can still work 2 – 3 hours a day as a consultant. This makes it convenient and very profitable at the same time – a perk in freelance jobs that’s not found elsewhere.
The Unemployed New Graduate
The newbie graduate usually do online work as an alternative while seeking or waiting for field work. This enhances their computer literacy training them how working should be. Some, however, immerse deeply into the prospect of online work that it becomes their mainstream profession in the long run.
The Multi-Tasking Housewife
Since online job can be accessible anywhere, a housewife can easily find extra income from it. They are more reliable on the job since they have a lot of spare time in the house taking care of the children and doing household chores. It helps them not just in terms of having an extra income, but also enhances their self-worth as they find something important to do and become a part of something that makes a difference.
The After-Office-Work Employee
Even office employees express certain interest on online jobs. In fact, like professionals, they use up 2 – 3 hours of their time daily after office hours to engage in online work and earn something more. Although they may not become SMEs or earn consultant-level salary for their services, but still getting an extra 20% – 30% income besides their monthly salary is a no-brainer decision to make.
The Person Who is on Sabbatical Leave
Sabbatical leave enables a person to try new things or work to do. A person who is on sabbatical is a perfect prospect for online work. The accessibility of it is a good factor in attracting them. Soon enough they might just get used to a new hobby or job that they’ve found and stick to it for the better part of their life.
The Computer Nerd
Perhaps no other working class makes more money from the web than IT professionals and computer experts do. If computers and the internet was a huge complex theme park, then computer nerds are its creators. Bill Gates, Larry Page, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, Craig Newmark and many others belong to this group – and they’re all billionaires! But being an IT professional and have a special mix of genius in your blood is not an easy task to accomplish, so proceed at your own risk.
These are the different working class of the internet community and like most people in the day jobs; they all come from all walks of life. So which working class do you think you belong to? Or better yet, perhaps you have your own idea of a new kind of working class to introduce to the internet?
