Welcome to our “Work From Home Q&A” series. They ask a question about remote work that is answered by a guest expert.

Below you will learn how to ask your own question.

This week's question comes from Nancy:

"Since I was a kid, I've loved helping people. It feels good when you change someone's life. So there are meaningful work-from-home jobs that are about helping others help? "

Professions of professions

Yes! In fact, some of the areas with the most distant job opportunities are in the helping professions – such as education and training, medicine and health, as well as nonprofit and philanthropic.

Supporting professions such as teaching, tutoring, nursing, social work, case management, management of non-profit programs and similar professional fields has long provided opportunities for remote working.

And at FlexJobs we also see remote jobs in surprising roles that help people, especially since the corona virus pandemic started, but also more generally.

For example, we recently had offers for a virtual camp advisor, a social support coordinator for COVID-19, a school content expert, a digital organizer for worker justice, a representative for emotional support for an abuse hotline, and a school social worker.

Another option is remote volunteering. There are more opportunities for volunteers than ever before. is a trusted website where you can search for volunteer opportunities. They offer the opportunity to find job offers that can be carried out entirely from home.
