Content writer

Can you really imagine a world without blogs altogether? Not really. While a decade ago, content writing, blogging, copywriting and other forms of digital advertising weren’t as big a deal as they are today, it’s now virtually impossible to run a business without running a blog as a package deal with the business or going on a solo blogging adventure of being an independent blogger. Either of the two work perfect for everyone who is into taking up remote jobs – you can either work for someone and generate content that agrees with their business or run your own blog and cover topics you want.

If you’re writing for someone, you are “technically” not a blogger but a ghostwriter (if you are not signing your name) or a content writer. If you are branding this person’s products/services you are a copywriter. If you are doing all of the above, you are freakin’ awesome Millennial who’s got the talents, capacity and wits to make it all happen!

Millennials are everything but ordinary and predictable. Adopting a life different to the previous generations, Millennials value their autonomy and free time. In that manner, most Millennials are demanding flexibility at their workplaces often opting to work on the go (i.e. remotely). The old-fashioned 9 to 5 jobs, cubicles and impersonal, boring offices simply don’t cut it anymore. Working on the go is what most Millennials prefer to do and with such a lifestyle comes a different approach to doing business.

Here, we lay out top five, Millennial-approved, career options for all of you looking to adopt this “digital nomad” business culture:

Blogger

A daughter profession to content writing, blogging is a bit more autonomous. In writing your own blog, you are in charge of the topics you want to write and publish, you are the one determining your writing voice and the overall vibe of your blogs. You can start up your own blog that can later turn into a website and gradually attract readers as well as potential customers. Your blog will be your personal space but at the same time – your virtual piggy bank! In time, as your blog gains readership and reputation, you’ll be able to promote products/services/firms/etc. and get paid to do so.

Influencer

Another Millennial-invented profession, or at least Millennial-named and defined in the form we know it today is the profession of "influencers." In all honesty, to be an influencer, you don’t need to have a formal education or a career. But – you do need to have charisma and a huuuuuge social media following.

You start slow, by building your group of social media hangouts; you go everywhere, report on every event, introduce yourself to people, socialize, jam. You are the person that’s always informed about the latest happenings, trends, etc. You are to know everything about anything and everyone, and have an opinion on it. Sounds a lot like gossip but it’s not – it’s knowledge. And knowledge on a number of topics gets you far. The idea behind “influencing” is to build such a strong image on social media that brands are chasing you to work with them and promote their product. The image of yourself you build on the internet needs to be consistent, reliable and specific enough to be interesting. Your voice must matter in order for people to actually want to hear your branding of a product.

You are spending the entire day on the web anyways, so why not give it a go?

Web designer

If you are a creative soul, web design is amazing and it pays well! Plus, it’s a remote job! As you know, a web designer creates the look and layout for a brand. Every brand has their own voice; they want consistency and brand awareness. They want to drive sales and your job is to make that happen by designing a page that speaks perfectly about the brand and its culture. You need to know both graphic design and computer programming to excel in the profession.
