Someone is always looking for a job. It’s either you, a relative, a friend, or an associate you once exchanged contact info with. During the pandemic, job loss was at an all-time high with women and small business owners bearing the brunt of it all.
According to the US Labor Department, stateside employers cut 140,000(!) jobs in December 2020 alone and every single one of those jobs belonged to women, with Black and Hispanic women losing more than white women. The Labor Department also noted that the majority of job loss was in the hospitality and leisure industries, where workers are more vulnerable to health and economic disparities. Plus, if all that wasn’t absolutely terrible, their male counterparts actually gained 16,000 jobs.
Thankfully, there’s still an abundance of job opportunities for creatives, female and otherwise. And if you’re one of many contemplating a fresh start, as well as a more flexible schedule, we’ve gathered some can’t-miss freelance remote creative job opps.
