Remote Working

It’s almost hard to imagine now that people would commute 2 hours each way, from home to office and back, hopping buses and trains. Remote working, as discovered by millions recently, has plenty of freedom and the added advantage of no-commute.

Landing oneself in a remote working job isn’t a cakewalk, and aspirants need a plan that will showcase them as the best candidate, who is cut out for working productively without supervision.

Your True Value

Showcase your value to the employer by providing the skills and traits which are relevant for the profile. This may include the previous solo projects you have undertaken, or if you have managed a team remotely. You can also provide a glimpse of your communication and time management skills.

Do ask relevant questions, finding out the company expectations, important policies and the facilities that are being provided.

Professional, Independent and Trustworthy

  • You have to take ownership of the tasks while showing proactiveness. Completion of tasks on time is one of the key requirements of any remote work.
  • The way you approach the job, the email language used, and even the social media posts you are making public can be gauged by potential employers to see if the candidate is the right fit and in line with the company culture.
  • You should have the skill, understanding, and experience in the job role and some familiarity with the company.

Video Interview Preparation

Familiarize yourself with the video tools, ensuring they are properly installed and functional in your device. You don’t want a delay or a cancellation due to network, audio and video issues.

Ensure the place around you is quiet and not distracting. Co-working spaces offer better privacy and networking options than coffee shops. Ensure that the video lighting and background look professional and clean.

What You Show Matters

Dress professionally, avoiding loud or distracting colors. Stay engaged and focus on the interview, while ensuring your body language, smiling, and eye contact is not distracting the interviewer from what you are saying. Keep the phone and computer notifications on mute.

Focus on the entire job role, taking interest in what the company is doing, not just what you have to do sitting at home. Only focusing on the remote aspect of the job can be a red flag to companies.

Prior Experience Matters

It’s definitely a plus point if one has freelancing or solo-working experience beforehand, if not then one can pick relevant freelancing projects. 

If already in a job, make a case with your manager about working from home, demonstrating your productivity and making it an ideal test case.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone
