As of May, the unemployment in Illinois has fallen a bit to 15.2 percent. While businesses are opening up and hiring again, the job market has contracted significantly. We are here to help in your search for traditional employment, but with many people still worried about COVID-19 and possible future outbreaks, it’s a good idea to look for income generation that you can do from home. The following are five popular areas of work and places hiring or offering gigs.
Most companies need some form of testing to make sure their web presence runs smoothly. That could include website reviews, Search Engine Optimization and more. So you can get paid to test websites and search engines. Generally, companies ask for 20 to 40-minute tests of their services along with a verification video. Here are some places to find this kind of work:
Customer service either by phone, email or chat is a standby that is usually hiring. Nearly every company has some kind of support network for customers. It’s not hard to find customer service jobs, but it is hard to find good ones. Many remote positions are popping up, but many companies have a high turn over rate. Postings are available on most job sites, especially for remote work.
Before the pandemic, online tutoring was a very healthy industry, and right now, it is booming. With most classes moved online, parents and students of all ages are desperate for additional help. If you have any previous teaching experience, there has never been a better time to move into online work. What you can earn depends on your focus and skill level, but there is a service for just about every subject. Wyzant, in particular, covers everything from Guitar, French, to Real Estate licensing.
If you ever wondered who writes all the advertisements or social media postings for a company, that’s the job of a copywriter. There are a select few hourly and salaried copywriter positions and gig, and freelance prices are generally low starting out, but if you can make a name for yourself, it can increase substantially. Postings are available on most job sites, especially for remote work.
While most hourly translator positions require a degree, several companies may just need a quick once over. We recommend trying Gengo.

SB Nation Reacts: Is this going to work?
This was a very big week in baseball as we all know, with negotiations between the players and owners for a new deal to start a 2020 season falling apart and Rob Manfred imposing a season on his own as he had the right to do per the March 26 agreement. As things stand, they are going to try to pull off a few weeks of spring training in July before starting the season on July 23 and 24. The season will be 60 games long. This, as one may expect, was the topic for this week’s SB Nation Reacts post.
With the obvious caveat that none of us know anything about how this virus is going to progress following the massive spike we’re seeing in many places across the country, I am with the majority here. I just don’t see how this works. I will say that if they make it to Opening Day, I think they’re going to push through almost no matter what. Of course, whether or not they should is a different discussion.
I’ve gone back and forth on this a bunch, and I think the nearly 50/50 split is pretty representative of my personal feelings. On the one hand, this just seems like a bad idea and there are massive risks. As I’ve said a bunch at this point, we just don’t know enough about this virus and specifically the long-term effects to confidently say everyone will be fine. There are real concerns here, and sports just aren’t important enough to take such big risks. On the other hand, there are a lot of people beyond the uber rich whose livelihood depends on games, and trying to make it work for them is worthy of discussion. Ultimately, I lean towards the side that says they shouldn’t be doing this, but I acknowledge there is at least some valid reasoning behind it.
We covered this last week too.
This question is too vague for me. If you’re unhappy do you think there should be more or fewer games? I’m of the mind that they can’t play beyond October, so however you make that work that’s what you have to do. So, I think I’m happy with the 60 games.
I think you know where I stand here.
Planned Parenthood Work To Extend Birth Control Access With Businesses
Birth Control Pills
In 2012 the United Nations (UN) declared in a report that contraception is a human right. It emphasized the importance of choice, not chance and an individual’s ability to plan a family on their terms. Their report made clear how access to contraception has a direct impact on many other human rights and access is key to helping to reduce poverty and gender inequality. However, there are millions of people around the world who aren’t in that position. Planned Parenthood is extending birth control access with businesses through their Business For Birth Control 2020 campaign. Covid-19 and legislative changes have exacerbated restricted access to birth control and reproductive health care and the most vulnerable are set to be the most affected.
Planned Parenthood announced its new campaign on June 23 under the tagline “Birth Control is Essential Health Care and Good for Business.” As an organization, Planned Parenthood has fought for sexual and reproductive health and rights for all. In their latest campaign, they’re working with 12 national companies who are affirming their employees’ birth control coverage as an essential part of their health insurance plans and urging more companies to do the same. In a statement, the organization said that this will affect more than 600,000 employees who work in retail, banking and asset management, health care, telecom, media, logistics and online delivery, venture capital and the public relations industry.
Speaking about the campaign in a statement, Alexis McGill Johnson, the President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America said, “guaranteeing birth control through company health insurance isn’t just the right thing to do — it makes sound business sense. Business leaders today are making a powerful statement to their employees: You should make your own health decisions, and we are willing to invest in your health and your future.”
A recent study has highlighted that a gap in knowledge and access to contraception and sexual health still exists. Black, Indigenous and people of color and members of the LGBTQ+ community are the most vulnerable to restricted access to essential healthcare. The pandemic has only made this worse. Research conducted at the Guttmacher Institute found that during the Covid-19 crisis one in three women have had problems accessing birth control and and many people felt they should cancel long-standing appointments due to the pandemic.
Similarly, the Supreme Court is currently considering a rule that would allow employers and universities to deny birth control coverage to employees and students based on personal objections. “As our nation faces the dual public health crises of Covid-19 and racism, people across the country are still facing relentless attacks on their health care. Whether it’s from the Supreme Court, the administration, or through international policy, access to birth control — critical, time-sensitive and essential medication that 90% of women will use in their lifetime — is under constant threat,” said McGill Johnson, “right now especially, we need more access to health care, not less. It has never been more essential for businesses to step up where politicians have failed.”
Amalgamated Bank, Argent, Bad Robot Productions, CREDO Mobile, Female Quotient, Jaya Apparel Group: parent company to Cinq à Sept and Likely, hims and hers, Postmates, The Helm, The Lede Company, Trillium Asset Management and Tumblr are the companies that have pledged to extend access to birth control to their employees.
Speaking about their involvement with the campaign Maura Keaney, Vice President of Commercial Banking at Amalgamated Bank said, “as a business, we have a responsibility to speak up against threats to our employees’ and clients’ birth control access, whether decisions are being in the highest court or in the UN, because reproductive health care is essential health care and reproductive rights are human rights. We hope more businesses will join us in pledging to be a Business for Birth Control.”
It’s been reported that 86% of female executives believe that being able to plan and time parenthood is critical to professional development and to a families’ financial security. Covid-19 has exacerbated inequalities in access to sexual and reproductive health services and contraception. Planned Parenthood hopes the campaign is another step in securing equality in the workplace and supporting employees from some of the most vulnerable demographics.

BWW Review: WORK_FROM_HOME, New Diorama Theatre online
On a Friday evening, after a long day of online meetings, I found myself on yet another Zoom call – but this time, for fun, with no idea what was going to happen, and no idea who I was talking to.
work_from_home is New Diorama Theatre’s online theatrical experience. This production is a digital adaptation of Nathan Ellis’s work.txt, which should have been performed at the ‘missing’ 2020 Incoming Festival, and which was nominated for an Innovation Award at VAULT Festival 2020.
Just 55 minutes long (if only all meetings could be so succinct), it’s a timely tale of our lives since lockdown started. With millions of people now glued to screens at their kitchen tables, with the constant threat of interruption from children or pets, the shape of the working day is ever-changing, and the definition of productivity is ambiguous.
Now that jobs are classed as ‘essential’ or ‘non-essential’, even the hardest workers are questioning whether what they dedicate their daily hours to really is that important, after all. This pandemic has put a lot of things into perspective, and work_from_home reflects this by pointing out the absurdity of it all.
The plot is fairly simple. A city wakes to another day in lockdown; but when one man’s average meeting goes viral for the strangest of reasons, we are invited to explore what happens when the unexpected occurs, and when things simply stop working as normal.
The instant they join the call, the audience becomes the actors. The script is drip-fed through a chat function, which is somewhat of a sarcastic overlord, handpicking participants to unmute their mics and speak a line or two, and occasionally asking for volunteers for the meatier chunks of storytelling.
It sounds intimidating, but those who may be nervous about performing have nothing to fear. You may get the chance for a bigger role, or you may mostly observe others in the limelight. While other digital theatre experiences I’ve had during lockdown feel somewhat passive, this is completely immersive – or, at least, as immersive as things can be outside of the auditorium.
work_from_home has the feel of a ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ story, even though the plot has already been decided for us. It’s a full-on interactive exploration of the surreality of our situation and shrewdly picks apart our new daily habits – pointing out that what we see as normal is actually pretty absurd.
There’s no formal cast to review, but I was impressed with everyone’s willingness to get involved, the effort put into performing on the spot, and how unembarrassed I was to be throwing myself into it, quite unexpectedly, from behind the safety of a screen. It’s very easy to get swept up into the story, and the novelty of it maintains curiosity. With an ever-changing cast of strangers, while the plot remains the same, there will be a different performance every night.
The music – a sort of digital soundscape – adds atmosphere to what could have been a very one-dimensional call. In fact, the aural element (sound and music design by Tom Foskett-Barnes) seems to weave the story together extremely well and makes the experience all the more mesmeric.
We’re asked to voice feelings and sentiments as characters that we may well be experiencing ourselves, which begs the question of how much we are really acting at all. The team behind work_from_home breach the boundaries of screens and offer real humanness to the slightly isolating experience of working from home and social distancing.
It’s a faceless production, but behind the pixels, there are many hands and minds that have built this little online world. Alongside Nathan Ellis and Tom Foskett-Barnes, Emily Davis (Creative Producer), Harry Halliday (Technical Stage Manager), Sam Ward and Ben Kulvichit (Dramaturgy), and Charlotte Fraser and Grace Venning (Additional Dramaturgy) have created something that could only have been created now, at this very moment. It’s incredibly clever.
The production itself is slick and very impressive. Scripts are updated almost instantly, personalised for the volunteers who put themselves forward for roles. The story is complex and cleverly pieced together, and the small touches (without giving the experience away) are clearly carefully thought out to make the most of the online platform available.
Amidst the wit, humour and fun, there is an eerie undertone to the production – not least because of the faceless director in the chat window. It’s impressive yet unnerving how quickly our information is incorporated into the scripts, and how willing the audience is to blindly go along with any instruction sent to us by an almost anonymous leader.
It’s entirely safe, of course – but it’s perhaps a clever metaphor for how we have found ourselves often unquestioningly following guidelines offered to us over the last few months, and indeed long before lockdown began.
In a time of ailing culture, it’s a joy to have the chance to be actively involved in such a unique production for an evening – to be part of the creative process, and to participate in something meaningful in these monotonous months of staying inside.
It’s this kind of creativity we need to hold on to, not only as means of surviving this lockdown, but for the future of culture in our country. The team behind work_from_home has proved that storytelling and theatre can survive – and even thrive – in even the strangest condition s, and in an online world.
This is the most fun you’ll have working from home during lockdown – just don’t tell your manager.
work_from_home is running on 29 June, 1 and 3 July via Zoom
