My heart goes out to you if you are experiencing job loss during this time. One of my podcasting communities shared a slew of resources for online jobs that I had to pass on to our Breezy Tribe. Please visit my other pages to learn about food, shelter, and educational resources. You can also learn about how to handle missed rent or mortgage payments. Thank you, Podcast Movement, for these amazing job resources!
Without further ado, here's a list of remote jobs you can do during social distancing:
1. Work for Amazon
It's not shocking at all that Amazon would have virtual jobs. Sign up to be a service provider via Amazon Mechanical Turk!
If you have some SAT knowledge or you know a language very well, you can provide private classes at home just by using video chat for Chegg tutors. You can set your schedule and become a part-time tutor online. Chegg Tutors is a reputable site for finding students and starts by paying $20 an hour. Here are a few other companies that offer similar options.
You can do everything from writing, graphic design, marketing, web programming, and more online. Businesses will post a project, you reply to that project with your experience by posting your best bid amount for that particular job. Here are a few other companies that offer similar options.
4. Test Websites
You can get paid up to $60 an hour to share about the good, the bad, and the ugly for various websites. It can be as simple as opening a website, browsing, clicking around, sharing your thoughts, and then getting paid via PayPal. Below are more companies that offer patent for site testing.

Search for online boards that focus specifically on work from home jobs. The roles are broken down by roles in which country you need to be in, but most jobs can be performed anywhere in the world. Here are a few other companies that offer similar options.
