6 Important Truths About Finding A Work From Home Job You Probably Don’t Know (But Definitely Should)

We go into a job search as a numbers game. The more jobs you apply to, the better your chances of getting hired, right? Wrong! In today’s job search — especially a remote job search — it’s all about quality over quantity. The better you can make yourself look in the eyes of recruiters, the better your chances of getting a coveted interview, which can eventually lead to a job offer. This is especially true for a remote job search, which is a lot different than a traditional one. After all, everything — from the job posting to the application and interview process — is done entirely online.

You won’t be able to meet face to face, shake hands, and show off your in-person charisma. Instead, you’ve got to do all the wowing remotely.

But truth be told, it’s not that important anymore. And it’s especially not that important in a remote job search. In fact, when it comes to hiring and finding a candidate to fill a vacant role, the resume is an employer’s least favorite way to find someone. That’s not to say you won’t need a resume. You will. But it’s more of a formality than something that will make or break your chances of getting hired. Keep Reading: Your…

What You Need To Know To Start Your Work From Home Job Search The Right Way

As of 2017, a whopping 43% of U.S.-based workers work from home at least some of the time. That’s pretty impressive considering, just even a decade ago, that number was less than 10%! And even though recent headlines show big-name companies, like IBM, calling their remote workers back into the office, the remote-work trend is here to stay. In fact, more than half of polled workers in large metro areas prefer remote work over any other commute option (think driving or public transportation!). Companies have taken notice of this desire to telecommute and are increasingly offering it as an option. And, of course, this is great news for out-of-the-cubicle thinkers, like you! But getting started with a work-from-home job search isn’t as simple as a traditional one. There are a lot of different terms, things to consider, and scams to be on the lookout for.
