Are you on the hunt for a new career? Maybe you’re just starting out, looking to get back into work after taking time out for children or just want to do something different. Well, there are certain jobs that are better for women than others. It doesn’t mean you can’t go for the others, but these career ideas are great starting points. Some of them you can even do from home.
Start Selling Your Own Items
Women are often more creative than men. You could create your own jewellery, start an antique restoration business or find that photography is your thing. Whatever you love to do, start selling your own items. It’s really easy to set up your own online store and some of the websites out there will manage it all for you—all you have to do is add creativity and wait for the money to roll in.
Be a Social Media Manager
As a social media manager, you’ll be in charge of creating discussions on their different pages, promoting their services or products and managing the different accounts so none of them lie dormant.
It takes a while to get used to and does require some organisational skills, but you can do this job from the comfort of your own home and will have fun.
Social media isn’t the only thing for businesses to watch out for. They need to keep an eye on their reputation—online and offline. If you love speaking in front of others, becoming a reputations manager could be the perfect career for you.
You’ll be in charge of creating press releases and marketing the positives for a business. If there are negative comments, it will be up to you to get out there and turn it all around.
An Interior Designer
Do you look at your friends’ homes and think a few things look out of place. You may see the layout and have dreams about the way they could utilise that space and make their rooms brighter and more stylish.
A Solicitor or Barrister
Why not consider a career in law? It may seem like a man’s world, but there are more and more female lawyers out there than you think.
And the good news is they’re earning a decent amount. You will need to go back to school for this, but it is never too late to learn.
You’ll then need to consider which career path you want to take in law—and this depends on whether you want to be self-employed, how well you do with learning and which part of the legal process you really want to be involved in.
