How to write your resume for remote jobs

1. State that you’re looking for a remote job

Whether is a cover letter, your LinkedIn profile or your resume, letting it be known that you’re looking for a remote position will leave no doubt as to the type of job you’re looking for.

2. Give more emphasis to the skills that you’ll need for a remote job

All your job skills are important, but in remote positions some skills are more important than others. For example, having communication skills, being flexible, self-motivated, tech-savvy, and having autonomy are some that stand out.

3. Talk about your achievements

Showcasing your achievements is important for both remote and non-remote positions. Talk about your successes, specially the ones that connect to the job you’re applying for. Bonus points if you use numbers and metrics with real examples.

4. Showcase your remote experience, if you have it

You can even dedicate a separate section to remote jobs you’ve had in the past. This includes any and all experience you’ve had while working during quarantine. Also make sure to list main responsibilities and skills involved.

5. Give a hint of your personality and interests

Your professional achievements matter the most, but letting recruiters know a bit more about you is also important. It helps them get a sense of the person that you are. Don’t give them all, though. Just enough to create interest.

6. Tailor your resume, every time.

Making a generic resume won’t be enough. It’s exciting to think of the possibility of getting a remote job, but there’s no point in rushing everything. If the job opening leaves room for it, if the company praises creativeness and standing out, then take your time to create a killer application. Remember: remote jobs are the most competitive out there, and recruiters review dozens, if not hundreds of applications every day. The more you stand out, the better.
