Your go-resource for landing a remote job, wherever you live.
Be clear. Whether on your cover letter, LinkedIn profile or resume, let potential employers know that you’re searching for a remote position.
Stay focused. All your skills are important, but for remote positions it’s important to highlight some remote-specific talents: communication skills, flexibility, self-discipline, tech-savviness and autonomy really stand out.
Showcase your achievements. Mention your career successes, especially the ones connected to the job you’re applying for. Bonus points if you can show concrete examples and real numbers.
Highlight your remote experience. You can even dedicate a separate section to your previous remote jobs. Be sure to include any and all experiences you’ve had working during quarantine. Adding a list of relevant skills and responsibilities can also help.
Get a little personal. While your professional achievements are paramount, it’s important to let recruiters know a little bit more about you. But don’t give it all away, just enough to build interest.
Do the work. Generic resumes aren’t enough. Firing off a resume to start your new, remote career is exciting, but there is no need to rush. Tailor your resume to your target company, if they are looking for creativity -- be creative. If they like organization, focus on your resume layout. Remember, remote jobs are highly competitive and recruiters review hundreds of resumes every day -- the more you stand out, the better.
