Remote work, working from home, hybrid work – whatever you call it, and however it looks, there has been a significant impact made across all industries. Millions of companies realized that by letting their teams work from home, they got better work and lower overheads, and their organizations ran perfectly.
We often think that only digital industries or IT-based companies can work from home – and it makes sense. These areas are synonymous with being completely online and digital (to an extent).
But, there is a call from companies across the globe in all industries, including consulting, media, literature, medicine, banking, and finance – you can even work from home in the medical industry.
So if you are considering a career that is almost 100% online, here are some industries that are growing in remote working.
Did you know that if you have legal experience and qualifications, you can work from home? There are lots of websites that people with legal quandaries can visit and hire some legal help there and then.

It’s not only that you can work on case files and contribute to journals or industry magazines too.
There are many opportunities within the finance sector, ranging from ‘smaller’ jobs like balance sheets and light accounting work to fully remote consulting and analysis.

Troubleshooting product and technical issues, resolving human error issues, and guiding people with the best ways to handle their problems. All while maintaining the tone of voice of the client.
Most of the time, you can get a foot in the door without experience because you will be trained in the role. Many companies will supply you with a laptop, the software you need, and sometimes a home office budget (like most remote roles).
You will need a stable internet connection and some good headphones if you’re taking calls.
Health and Wellness
Supporting people through weight loss journeys, eating better, learning, training, and even health care. Online therapy has also been a big deal too. Health and wellness is a huge market, and that means there are a lot of opportunities for work – even if you aren’t qualified in something. You can work with people through many different journeys in their wellness and healthcare.
