Working from home is becoming more of a reality since CV-19.  I have included many links that may enable one to find work remotely.  Following is a list of things that you must be familiar with and have possession of to consider working home remotely. 

  • Computer that has a microphone and a webcam 
  • Wired USB Headset 
  • An email account with a professional username 
  • An up-to-date operating system such as Window 8 or 10 or if you are using a Macbook, Mojave version 10.14 or higher. 
  • High-speed internet connection and adaptive WiFi-this must include an appropriate bandwidth. 
  • You must be familiar with platforms, such as Zoom and Skype, and be able to video chat. 
  • Familiarity with instant chat also known as (IM) tools, such as Google HangoutsLiveChat, OlarkJivoChatSlack, and Microsoft Teams. 
  • Digital Assistants, such as Alexa, CortanaSiri, and Google Assistant can help when you need instant information. 
  • In some cases, Project Management Platforms, such as Asana and Trello are essential. 
  • 4GB of RAM (Random Access Memory) 
  • A large monitor (in some cases more than one may be needed)
