How do you compare to other candidates wanting remote work?

With more candidates than ever wanting a remote role, competition for these limited jobs is intense! Here are some tips to stay ahead of the competition:

  • Emphasize your ability to self manage: This will help remote managers be more at ease with hiring you to work in a remote or hybrid position
  • Highlight your skills in communicating asynchronously and in written form: This is often how remote workers keep their teams up to date, so the more you can demonstrate your abilities to do this, the better
  • Set clear hours for when you will (and won't) work: Having a structure in place and communicating your plans for this schedule can help hiring managers know what to expect and be confident in how (and when) they can count on you
  • Use the word "remote" in your resume: This will help your resume stand out in applicant tracking systems so you're application is brought to the top of the stack
  • Get familiar with remote platforms: When you know the terminology hiring managers use to explain the technologies they use to communicate or manage projects, it will help you to respond effectively to their interview questions
