8 Non-Tech Remote Jobs for 2024

Are you looking for remote work but lacking tech experience? Well, good news then. Opportunities like this are growing more and more. And for different reasons.

The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated this trend as companies adapted to remote work models for safety reasons, leading to a greater acceptance and normalization of remote work arrangements among employers and employees alike. The pandemic was over, and the trend continued. Advancements in technology enabled seamless collaboration and communication from anywhere. People, especially in large cities, but not only, began to save time by avoiding traffic jams when commuting to work.

Despite the challenges of working from home — like setting boundaries, time management, and maintaining your mental health — many people have opted for remote work opportunities. In addition to saving time on your commute, working remotely allows you to choose where you live and, in some cases, what hours you work.

Up until recently, most remote jobs were tech-related roles. But nowadays, you can find just about any type of role in any industry with remote possibilities. You don't need to identify as a tech professional (i.e. engineer, developer, data scientist, etc.) to find a work-from-home job you love!

Here are some examples of great non-tech remote jobs for you to consider in 2024 so you can kiss rush hour goodbye.


1. Online Counselor: $68, 084 (National Average for a Therapist)

Among millennials (born between 1981 and 1996), depression is the fastest-growing health condition. Millennials have been called the therapy generation, attending therapy in record numbers and convincing loved ones to go too. And, with the increased need for therapy, remote, online options have made their way to the forefront of mental health care. Online Counselors are now able to help clients remotely through text, calls, and video chat!

Why this works remotely: As an online counselor you are doing what you normally do with a patient, just with a screen that separates you. Also, some patients who are reluctant to attend therapy in-person may feel more comfortable opening up in a virtual setting.

2. Remote Nurse/PA: $80,321 (National Average for a Remote Nurse)

You may perform a variety of duties including triage (online or over the phone), patient education, care management, patient outreach, and central support to practice operations.

Why this works remotely: It may sound shocking that a healthcare practitioner could work remotely, but now more than ever people are eager to get medical advice before making a trip to the ER. They also need advice when trying to gauge if they need to seek medical attention or when they feel too sick to make a trip to the office but know they're ill.
