How To Increase Your Chances To Find and Get Hired for A Remote Job Now

With the pandemic significantly changing the way we work, it's no surprise that remote job opportunities have risen worldwide.

The comfort of working from home and a healthy work-life balance is an attractive option for many.

Navigating the remote job market can seem overwhelming, especially if you're new to the concept. So, how can you set yourself up for success?

According to statistics, the number of remote job postings has increased by 2.6 times since the pandemic. This means there is a growing demand for remote workers, which also means more competition.

As an expert Job Search Strategist, I assure you that landing a remote job can be seamless with the right preparation, research, and skillset.

Here are key strategies to implement to find the perfect remote job opportunity.


Showcase your experience

I highly recommend ensuring your resume is up-to-date and tailored to highlight your remote work skills before starting your search for remote jobs.

According to statistics, remote work is rising, as is the competition for these positions. Therefore, it is vital to highlight any relevant remote work experience, such as working from home, collaborating with colleagues in different time zones, and using remote work tools.

A great way to showcase these skills is through a visually appealing and easy-to-scan resume. Doing this increases your chances of standing out from the hundreds of other applicants and landing the remote job of your dreams.

So, take the time to update your resume and tell your remote work story to potential employers!

Search for remote job openings on job sites

Job boards are dedicated to remote work opportunities, such as, FlexJobs, and We Work Remotely make finding your dream job more manageable. These job boards cater to various industries. Whether you're a writer, marketer, or developer, there's bound to be a job opening for you.

According to a recent study, remote job opportunities have increased by 44% over the past year. So, why set up job alerts for relevant positions and explore the possibilities? Not to mention, LinkedIn is also a great platform to find remote jobs, so remember to optimize your profile and start the search today.

Attend virtual job fairs and career events

As remote work becomes increasingly popular, it's no surprise that virtual job fairs and career events are popping up everywhere. These events offer a unique opportunity for remote job seekers to connect with potential employers and learn more about what they offer.

And it's not just about getting a foot in the door - virtual events also allow job seekers to learn more about remote work culture and ask questions about what it's like to work from home.

With several events occurring throughout the year, it's essential to keep an eye on what's coming up and prepare accordingly.

So whether you're a seasoned remote worker or just dipping your toes in the water, these events are worth checking out!

Leverage your network

As an expert Job Search Strategist, I know that referrals are a common way of landing a remote job opportunity. But you can do more to increase your chances of finding a tremendous remote opportunity.

Joining online communities and Slack groups catering to remote workers can expose you to valuable insights into remote job opportunities and work culture.

A recent study found that 72% of remote workers feel less isolated when they're part of a community of remote workers.

I can personally attest to the benefits of joining these groups - it's where I've connected with other remote professionals and have found some of the best opportunities.
