The jobs available for people looking to make money online run the gamut. On the internet, you can seek everything from full-time employment as a remote staff member to a work-whenever-you-want side hustle as a blogger or jewelry-maker.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has rattled the job market, online hiring is strong in a range of industries. According to Glassdoor’s Job Market Report, there were 11,430 remote job openings in July on Glassdoor, up 28.3% from the year before.

Laveta Brigham

Silicon Valley giants Apple, Amazon and Facebook enjoyed a dramatic boom during the worst months of the coronavirus pandemic, posting rises in quarterly profits last night that will add fuel to claims they are becoming too dominant.

Shares in the companies jumped in after-hours trading last night as they revealed that rises in online shopping and internet use during lockdown meant soaring revenues in the three months to the end of June, despite wider economic pain.

The results were in stark contrast to dire US figures that revealed a 32.9pc annualised contraction in the world’s biggest economy during the same period, sending Wall Street down earlier in the day.

Amazon revealed that sales in the quarter had … Read More

NBC senior business correspondent Stephanie Ruhle spoke with TODAY’s Hoda Kotb about the best ways to help your bank account without leaving the house.

1. Make sure there’s no unclaimed money in your name.

According to Ruhle, a shocking amount of money goes unclaimed in the United States: It’s estimated that the country has about $42 billion in unclaimed funds.

“I’m talking about security deposits, store credits, money the IRS might owe you, maybe even a savings account you forgot about,” Ruhle said. “This money, if it’s left dormant for a while, gets moved to a holding account in your state, but it’s up to you to go find it.”

To start looking for any unclaimed funds, go to your state’s unclaimed property website and type in your
