Remilon is an established web media company best known for providing online educational content. They have had openings for freelance writers for years (offering hourly pay), and I have written all about the writing positions here.
It has recently come to my attention that Remilon also has several other contract positions available apart from writing just the standard educational articles. Many of these newer positions require at least some educational background. Below is a list of the opportunities currently available along with a summary of what each position involves. Note that this post is a little time sensitive … these jobs are available now, but Remilon could take them down at any time.
Remilon is only looking for workers in the United States.
Here is the job description for the career counselor, taken from the Remilon website:
The Career Counselor will be responsible for enhancing career guidance, programming and coordination of resources for students in the pre- and early post-graduation stages of the career development process. This includes defining career options, teaching job-search procedures and addressing other career-related needs. This position will create content to help guide students to secure appropriate career experiences to enhance overall academic experience.
To be considered for the career counselor position, you’ll need a master’s degree or higher along with at least two years of experience in a high school or college counseling setting. This is a 100 percent work from home position and while the rate of pay isn’t listed, it is stated that payments are made twice monthly with Paypal.
This is basically the same job as above, but instead of focusing on career content creation, you are instead writing about the college search and application process. The requirements are also the same — at least a master’s degree with some experience in a high school or college counseling setting.
Remilon online instructors are responsible for creating either text or video lessons. Text lessons will include lesson text, quiz questions, and video aids while the video lessons include lesson scripts, quiz questions, lesson images, video storyboard, and audio recordings. Text lessons pay $40 each and video lessons pay $125 each. The website states that most online instructors start off doing the easier text lessons and then move up to the video lessons after they’ve had more experience. While the other positions at Remilon allow you to get paid twice per month, this one is just once a month pay.
To qualify as an online instructor for Remilon, you need a master’s degree or higher as well as some secondary or post-secondary teaching experience.
Remilon has an ongoing need for video editors to edit the video lessons created by online instructors. You don’t need any type of educational background for this position and no writing is involved, but you do need at least a bachelor’s degree in film, broadcast journalism, multimedia, education or a related field or equivalent experience. You also need experience with and access to popular software used for editing like Flash and After Effects.
Pay for this position is $14 per minute of edited video. I’ve also noticed that this one does not specifically state “work at home” or “telecommute,” but I still get the impression that it is. If anyone finds out different, for sure let me know and I’ll remove it from here.
If any of you have feedback you’d like to share on the positions listed above, I would appreciate if you would share it. I can’t find much at all. There is a ton of feedback on the general freelance writing position at Remilon that pays hourly (mostly mixed), but no one online seems to be saying much about the counselor and instructor positions.
I think that the counselor and instructor positions might be worth looking into further if you meet the requirements and would like to have an extra side-gig to bring in more income in addition to what you already do. I continue to be amazed by how many online opportunities there are in the education field.
