I Have No Internet Experience – How To Apply For A Job Online

applying for jobs onlineMany people are asking themselves, how to apply for a job online if they have no internet experience. and if it is possible today?

We live in a world where skills matter more than ever. It is not good enough to have a stable work history anymore.

Now you need relevant work experience backed by skills for the job you are applying for. However, having said that there are ways to make money online including jobs from home.

These type of jobs are often referred to as telecommuting. You work at home at the convenience of your employer.

I want to look at applying for a job through the lens of no Internet experience. Even though applying for an online job with no prior experience can be a daunting task, it is possible to land for the right job.

To land on the job you want, you have to…..

Embrace Your Reality

Many online jobs may be requiring you to have prior expertise in the field. However, there are those jobs that require close to no experience.

If you want to get an online job that requires prowess that you lack you can still get it. You have to acknowledge you are a beginner and that you have to start somewhere.

You should exhibit confidence and humility in the application. Show your willingness to learn when you get inducted.

Identify Your Skills

You should make a list of skills you possess that identifies with those on the post you want to apply. Acknowledge those basic skills you learned from your academic pursuit.

You should not dismiss your degree, diploma or certificate just because it has not given you a job. It is time you put into use the skills you acquainted yourself.

For example, you can have exceptional marketing skill such as persuasion that would make many online merchants hire you. Give your skills relevance by showcasing them on your application.

Make The Link

As you make an online application for a particular job it must be from deep within you that you are capable of conducting the task. You have some ample time to analyze the job.

Identify what formal or informal experience you may have, or the personal traits that make you suitable for the job. Market your authenticity so that the employer will recognize you.

Be yourself and apply for the job with high precision. Display honesty on the transferable skill and expertise you intend to bring on board.

You too can grow, learn and explore Internet skills

Emphasize Soft Skills

You may have skills that many others have. However, there are those skills that make you stand out from other applicants.

You should portray a top-notch ability to do your task with minimal supervision. Your responsiveness, your relationship with clients and the ability to showcase professionalism in the job can help earn you the position.

Some of the soft skills are earned and not taught. Thus, it is about what you can do to surpass the competitors that make you a potential online earner.

Network

There are a variety of jobs that can be done online. Just because your friend is doing a particular job, it does mean that you too can do it.

Connect with your friend and people doing online jobs and ask how they got the job. Inquire on the challenges and what strategy they employ to have a long-lasting relationship with the employer.

Networking is the gateway to achieving a realistic job online. You can reach out to your friends through social media, or at professional events.

Through your sources keep learning new things. Within no time you won’t say you have no experience.

You should research the job you want to apply and know what it entails. Then it will be easier to make realistic applications since you will apply for the job that you know you can prove your worth when you get it.

Get Some Skills

I would be remiss if I did not give you resources for acquiring skills that will help you in the marketplace. Some of these may require you to go back to school, while others can be self-taught or be getting certified.

1. The University Of Phoenix. Here you can get everything from online business and tech degrees to nursing and other skill required degrees. I like that you can take 5-6 week courses at a time which may help you get a job at home as well.

2. CompareTopSchools.com. This is a great website for researching over 7000 colleges and universities.

3. Skills needed. I want you to think about specific skills working online are needed for. These can include SEO, website design, blogging, copywriting, customer service, data entry, and many more. Do a Google search for one of these followed by the word certification and this will open your eyes to a new world of skills.

You may need to get new skills while you are working at home. The great thing is the Internet is always open 24 hours a day so you can become more skillful around your own lifestyle and schedule. Do not let what you lack in skills stop you from becoming more marketable in the job marketplace!

    Hello Bishop,

    Thank you for the great article!

    I have been suffering for a while now trying to get some jobs online but no results.

    I tried many markets such as Upwork, Freelancer .com, Fiverr, and some others. I built good profiles, but with no previous projects and testimonials I’m not being hired.

    And actually, these markets are already flooded with other skilled people that can work for few bucks an hour.

    I’m really tired with the whole trading time for money thing and want to have my own business.

    Is really affiliate marketing as good and profitable as many say, or is it also crowded and over-competitive?

    Looking forward for your feedback!

      Amjad, nothing that is good happens overnight, else everyone would be successful. Success happens to the one that are willing to put in the time on a continuous basis and try different things.

      Affiliate Marketing is your best bet if you know exactly the road to take. I would take the Wealthy Affiliate course, and become an Amazon Affiliate and pick a niche that you know. Gardening, headphones, c baby clothing etc. And build your website surrounding the niche that you choose.

      While taking your course share what you have learned on social media in that way you will earn an income from referring people to Wealthy Affiliate as well. And become a premium member so that I can send private message to you on where you should focus on for better results. Other top members will be at your disposal as well. Hope that helps.

    Working online is the way of the future, there is no doubt about that! Companies are starting to see the benefits of having employees working from their homes instead of coming into an office – it cuts down everyone’s overheads. Companies have less office expenses and staff don’t have to commute – it is a win win for everyone. With this digital age things are becoming easier in a lot of ways. 

    I haven’t worked for a boss for over 10 years and technology has made this possible for me. For the first few years I worked from home doing bookkeeping online and now I blog from home. It is an amazing way to earn money online. All you need is an internet connection and a computer, plus of course you need some training and support.

    Hi Bishop,

    I couldn’t agree with you more Bishop that applying for an online job can be most of the time an intimidating task for someone who lacks the skillsets and might not have an expertise on a particular skill to compete for a particular online job considering that there are hundreds or thousands are vying for that particular vacancy. 

    What I could share is that we have the capacity to evolve by means of trying to keep ourself updated with the current trend of the online world. Learning must be a continuous process. In this way, you will not be left behind by other in this online world.

      Glenda, thank you for your insight here. Many people has fall to prey to a lot of online scam and believe that they can make money without having the knowledge. They can see the relevance of earning a degree but when come to making money online, they can’t see that skills-set, as you so put it, is needed.

      And this is the reason that make money scams are so popular today. people do not want to put in the work to have a successful life working from home on the internet. Thank you for reaching out here and good luck with your online business.
