As you know, there will be a lot of companies hiring remote workers in the coming months to assist with their call volume and other job duties that will be in high demand. If you get hired for one of these companies and you do a good job, they may offer you the first chance to work for them when they will be recruiting again. Working seasonal or temporary jobs for employers can also help to fill in the gaps as you continue to look for more stable or permanent employment. Some are even able to work 2 jobs at a time as long there is no conflict of interest in scheduling and so forth.
