up­dated and ready to in­ter­act. the brand’s web­site. The more peo­ple on your site, the bet­ter. Ev­ery click counts!

SEO spe­cial­ists, or Search En­gine Optimization spe­cial­ists, are your team’s se­cret weapons in win­ning over the Google realm. As the web grows, it be­comes easy for your con­tent to get lost no mat­ter how great it is. That’s what SEO spe­cial­ists are for. They study the ever-chang­ing al­go­rithms on­line and make sure that the brand they’re with is as close to the first thing you’ll see when you search on­line.

And by cloud de­vel­oper, we don’t mean some­one who re­or­ga­nizes the strato­sphere! Nerdy jokes aside, cloud de­vel­op­ers are peo­ple in charge of mak­ing sure that the in­vis­i­ble hard drive that keeps all our mem­o­ries on­line are in­tact. Ever won­der how Face­book can re­mind you about the em­bar­rass­ing things that hap­pened five years ago? Yep, that’s thanks to cloud de­vel­op­ers! But cloud de­vel­op­ers aren’t just in de­mand for so­cial me­dia com­pa­nies. A lot of in­dus­tries are adopt­ing the cloud to their sys­tems, from fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions, to ed­u­ca­tional sys­tems, and many more.

Wlives ith the In­ter­net be­ing wo­ven into our daily as mil­len­ni­als, it’s not just so­cial­iz­ing that’s been im­pacted. The in­ter­net age has also im­pacted the way we travel, the way we eat, the way we think, the way we live, and even the way we work. Lately, there’s been a lot of new jobs that are be­ing in­tro­duced and in de­mand es­pe­cially for the dig­i­tal age. If you as­pire to pur­sue a ca­reer where be­ing dig­i­tal-savvy is a re­quire­ment, check these out: Cloud De­vel­oper App de­vel­oper and de­signer So­cial Me­dia In­flu­encer

If some­one’s in charge of keep­ing the mem­o­ries in­tact and alive, some­one has to make it ac­ces­si­ble to peo­ple who want them, right? Now, that’s the job of an app de­vel­oper and de­signer. Usu­ally, these are two sep­a­rate jobs, but be­cause of com­pe­ti­tion these days, you’ll find peo­ple who can do both. Yes, app de­vel­op­ers are in charge of cre­at­ing apps for you tac­cess in­for­ma­tion, but the apps they make do more than that. Look at your phone and see ev­ery­thing you down­loaded, those are all made by app de­vel­op­ers and de­sign­ers!

Thanks to the In­ter­net, busy peo­ple can now hire as­sis­tants even when they live on the other side of the planet. Es­sen­tially, vir­tual as­sis­tants or­ga­nize files, emails, sched­ules, book tick­ets, and any­thing else that can be done over the in­ter­net. In need of one? Search for your own VA on free­lance sites!

I bet you never thought be­ing your own boss would ever be profitable, but I kid you not, peo­ple are do­ing it for a liv­ing! From cu­rat­ing a feed to be­ing up­dated with SEO knowl­edge to get­ting ac­tive en­gage­ment from fol­low­ers, So­cial Me­dia In­flu­encers are the peo­ple we lis­ten to on­line. Think of celebri­ties, blog­gers, vlog­gers, and trav­el­ers. They’re all so­cial me­dia in­flu­encers. They’re paid by brands to post on their feed (and sto­ries), given they have a pretty strong fol­low­ing or a spe­cific niche they’re known for. If you’re all about trav­el­ing while you work, and work­ing while you travel, this could be a lead­ing op­tion.

Best part? While you can do some of these even while you’re in school, here are a few more things you can do to hus­tle while you learn.
