WHAT remote JOBS LOOK LIKE
Some remote jobs allow you to work at any time of the day, while others have a set schedule and location flexibility. Find out exactly what "remote" means before taking a job by finding out what type of job it is in the industry you're interested in.
Type 1: 100% REMOTE
You are never (or very rarely) required to go to an office.
Type 2: REMOTE A FEW DAYS A WEEK
Maybe you work from home 1 or 2 days per week. The structure around this setup can be more rigid, with restrictions on when, where, and how you work outside of the office.
Type 3: FLEXTIME
Flextime itself can range, from being expected to only show up for a few online meetings per week, leaving you to structure the rest of your work time, to something like “Flex Fridays,” where you have one day week that’s yours to schedule.
Type 4: FLEXIBLE WORKPLACE
You are expected to work at the office, but you don’t need to ask permission to take a day off or take a long lunch.
There are a lot of remote tech jobs available. Web development is one of the most in-demand tech jobs out there right now. Tech jobs in general are among the highest paid, especially for those without a degree. Learning front end development, or a programming language like Ruby might lead you to your dream job.
There are a few ways to make sure that the remote job you're applying for is actually legit. Some companies do everything entirely via text-based communication. A phone call or video chat with a real person is a good sign.
Almost every remote job will require you to be comfortable using video conferencing apps (Skype), team chat programs (Slack) and email.
You'll need a solid understanding of the technologies specific to the job you're after in order to succeed.
START TRACKING HOW YOU SPEND YOUR TIME
You need to be able to tell hiring managers how great you are handling your schedule without someone looking over your shoulder to keep you on task.
Programs like Harvest and Toggl can tell you how many hours you spend working, and how many breaks you take to watch videos of kittens.
EXPERIMENT WITH MANAGING PROJECTS DIGITALLY
When you’re working remotely, there’s no bulletin board for managing projects—make sure you can keep projects rolling, no memos required.
Give programs like Asana, Trello, or Jira a try for delegating tasks and checking items off your to-do list.
Remote workers rely on email, but they don't want more of it.Begin honing your communication skills in order to embody the “less is more” principle.
Even if you’ve never had a remote job before, knowing how to answer questions about your workflow, communication, and time management strategies
is critical when it comes to landing you the remote
job you’re after
Remote jobs are jobs that you can work from any place and you don’t have to be in the office. Remote jobs are also called telecommuting jobs. They can be performed from your home, the library, a coffee shop, the beach, and anywhere you have access to the internet.
