Popular Internet Jobs For Community College Students

by A Guest Author

As the world becomes increasingly digitized and we go from a time honoured codex with pages to the library in your hand Kindle and from marketing to eCommerce, it has also come to our attention that several new employment opportunities are presenting themselves. In an age where everyone has the potential to display their professional and personal skills through the internet, more people are becoming their own bosses and turning a hefty profit from it.

Online Writer/Blogger

Naturally, this is my personal favourite but online writers are in increasingly high demand and for good reason. The search engines have clearly defined the online business arena on their own terms and their law is that content is king. If business owners stand any chance of their product being located then they need text on a page which draws people there. The days of content scrapping are at an end. From Mommy bloggers to SEO copy writers, there's been an explosion of talent which has all been showcased directly online - and the pay can be very good.

eBusiness Owner

If you've got your own website then you potentially have your own business. If you managed to buy a great domain which is relevant to your cause and you know how to make a website enticing and functional then you don't really need a physical office any longer. The overheads are dramatically lowered. A good hosting service for a small business goes for as little as $10 - $20 per month and with a good WordPress site with checkout capability you could stand to create an impressive small business enterprise which makes you a very comfortable living.

Web Design

If you've got design skills then you're in high demand today and you can count on being in high demand tomorrow too. Regardless of anything else an eBusiness owner has going for them on their site they still need it to look great and to attract users and inspire confidence to get conversions. Although many media companies have their own in-house design teams there's absolutely no reason why this job can't be performed by a freelancer working from home. You’ll need to get a couple of jobs done so you have examples of your work but once you're established - you're set for life.


The great search for relevancy continues everyday as eBusinesses attempt to outrank their competitors by making their site more relevant to their industry than their direct competition and many small businesses just can't afford to get their optimisation done by a big firm with offices. This is where you come in. By getting hard results and tracking your progress in Analytics you can easily create a dedicated client base which is loyal to you and earn a good living.
