People like to make fun of us English majors, saying we’ll never get jobs, never make money or worse — end up teaching.
(Let me just go on the record as having said: English majors have plenty of job opportunities, and teachers are impressive, hardworking and do an incredible job that not many dare to do.)
So here’s the real truth: On top of opening up a host of regular career opportunities, having an English degree actually allows you to pick up a number of side gigs (especially the work-from-home kind) that not many other degree paths offer.
One such side-gig? Tutoring English students and proofreading papers.
(And don’t worry! If you weren’t an English major but you’d still love to snag a work-from-home job or side-gig, go ahead and like our Jobs page on Facebook. We post new and interesting work-from-home job opportunities there all the time!)
