Online Jobs in Sri Lanka – Can You Do Online Jobs from Sri Lanka?

The popularity of online jobs has grown significantly in the last few years. Most Sri Lankan who do online jobs don’t want to do it full-time, but they prefer to do it on the side during after work-hours and weekends.

Online Job Scams by Sri Lankans

One word of warning is, there are many scams by people online, including Sri Lankans – saying they got rich with online jobs. Unfortunately, these scams are done by Sri Lankans as well.

The truth is, doing an online job is not a way to get rich fast. It takes a lot of work to find a good job that you can do from home, and you need to serve your employer or customers by doing good work. When you do good work, you can get good reviews, and you'll be referred to more customers.

What do you need to do an online job?

At a minimum, you’ll need a computer and an internet connection. Also, if your written English is not at a good level, try to improve it.

What types of work can you do online?

Almost anything that can be done with a computer, can be done online. Few of these types of work are:

  • Article writing
  • Web design
  • Graphic design
  • Programming
  • Photo and video editing
  • Admin work

How to be successful with online jobs?

As mentioned earlier, it does take a lot of work to become a successful online worker. Because you’ll not have a Manager watching you always, you need to be motivated to deliver results to your employer.

If you can do these, you’re likely to be more successful in your job.

  • Respond to emails and messages quickly.
  • If things are getting delayed, let your employer know early.
  • Don’t lie or promise things you can’t do.
  • Deliver more than you’re getting paid for – and let your employer know.
  • Improve your English (both written and spoken)
