If you’re the one who loves coding, problem solving, designing, building a software or knows at least one programming language then this one is for you.
The daily task of a software developer is to troubleshoot systems, fixing computer codes, performing maintenance to keep software functions, documenting solutions, testing their products then performs quality control checks.
I remember watching a YouTube video about coding and how to learn the basic programming language and it really amazed me because of their work ethics and it feels like your talking to your computer and it’s so cool.
7. Video game tester
This kind of job is my favorite because I really love playing video games. I remember working in odesk before to be a video game tester for grand theft auto video game and it’s really cool experience because I can test the game all the time to look for bugs, errors, glitches and comment everything that need improvements and it’s such an amazing experience.
The responsibility of a video game tester is to know if the game performs according to the plan of your client and they need to make sure it doesn’t have errors before it will release to the public.
Playing video games for many hours a day can be tiring so maybe you can consider buying the best affordable chairs that is perfect for gaming.
It’s a perfect job too while traveling because some of the companies just requires you to meet the developers face to face via zoom to identify issues.

If you’re the one who can handle complaints and has a patience to listen to all the customers problems then this one is for you.
Customer service representative helps customers by explaining all the details of the company products. They are the one who contacts customers thru phone, online messaging or email.
Some companies requires a high school diploma but some are just thru trainings and experience.
