To understand what online jobs are, first, we’re going to break down the phrase ‘online jobs’. Online, Jobs. Online means that something is controlled or connected to a computer. This opens wide its doors of access from different places at the same time. But it’s not just about simultaneous access, it is also about virtual planning, execution, monitoring, evaluation, modification, and transfer of data. Data is like a changed state of physical things to bits of information that can be processed by a computer. That’s how everything about a job can be transferred into a computer and remain a job to be done. That’s how you can now do online everything you did physically.
What if a kid asked you the same question? ‘what are online jobs?’ Would you be able to answer it without rearranging the words and then repeating the same phrase. ‘online jobs are jobs done online‘. I think this would be a better answer, ‘online jobs refer to any job that can be done from anywhere using a computer. If you don’t have to be physically present to do a job and yet you are still able to do it using a computer, that’s an online job.
What do you need to do an online job?
#1 A computer
A computer refers to an electronic device that receives, stores and processes coded instructions(software codes) for it to be operational and data (transformed information a computer can process) for it to be functional. Examples of computers can be; a laptop, desktop, mobile phone, etc. Each type of computer comes in varying sizes, forms, and shapes with varying capacities. Therefore you’ve to make sure that the computer you have can help you complete the online job you got, as fast and efficient as is expected. i.e. An e-book writing job definitely needs a computer that is bigger than a mobile phone since you’ll have to use Microsoft word and a lot of typing.
#2 Computer skills
Owning one if you can’t use it is futile. Just looking at a computer won’t make it do the online job for you. You need to possess at least basic knowledge and skills on how a computer functions. It’s like knowing how to drive a car, even though some cars can self-drive now. Most online jobs require basic computer skills like; Microsoft word, excel, PowerPoint, publisher, etc. Designers need skills on top designing software; accountants need skills on top accounting software; analysts need skills on top analytics software, etc. Every job type has equivalent computer software which enables online employees and employers to play their role as best as they do with physical jobs.
FYI: A computer software is a set of preinstalled instructions meant to make the computer function in a certain way for a specific reason and result. i.e. internet browsers or adobe photoshop.
#3 Internet access
Online jobs are put up by employers via their computers and the best way to access them is via a connection to the internet. When your computer is connected to the internet, it is automatically connected to other computers around the world which makes access and online interaction possible.
#4 Job skills
Knowing how to use a computer does not qualify you to undertake any online job. Just like psychical jobs, online jobs also require a person to have necessary skills and knowledge as is desirable to the employer and the execution of that job. If you want to do online writing jobs, you better be a good writer. If you want to do book-keeping online, you better be good at accounting. etc.
#5 Know where to find and apply for online jobs
In the same way, you might need to walk down the street to a factory and ask them for a job, switch on your computer, and begin browsing through companies’ websites offering online jobs. Most of the time you’ll find thousands of online jobs waiting for you on a single website or online platform.
How can you make a lot of money from online jobs?
There’s an old saying which goes like this, ‘if what you do is above and beyond, it won’t matter if your house is located deep in the forest, people will come knocking on your door‘. Online jobs open the gates of opportunity to all people around the world at the same time, the only thing that can make you stand out is excellence, amazing performance, reliability, and consistency. This should be you if you want to cash in big checks from online jobs.
When it comes to the issue of making money, factors of frequency, size, and amount take precedence. The number of online jobs you undertake and complete successfully will determine the amount of money you make in a given period of time. A sales representative with a portfolio of 500 prospects within a month can not be expected to earn as much as a guy with a portfolio of 10 similar prospects within the same period.
