Prepare For Your Remote Jobs Search

Read job postings carefully
Be prepared for virtual interviews
- Have you ever worked remotely?
- Why do you want to work remotely?
- What makes you a good fit for a remote position?
- What’s your communication style?
- What’s a secret you use to avoid distractions?
- What hours do you normally work?
Be patient and follow up
Establish a Schedule and Routine
Job hunting can feel like a full-time job. It can be hard, challenging, and can lead to depression, overwhelm or burnout. Take care during these precious times. Establishing a routine will help bring some focus and structure to your day. One of our awesome community members, Bricelyn Jones suggests, “Take a break or a few days off if you’re feeling burned out and do something you enjoy (sometimes it’s good to give your efforts time to marinate). Eliminate other areas of noise that cause stress (constant news updates, social media, emails/subscriptions that don’t add value…etc.) Continually remind yourself and/or spend time with others who can remind you that you have value to offer and that it will eventually be recognized.”
