Remote work was once a rare work arrangement seemingly reserved for a select few professionals at the top.
However, the last two years have proven that advancements in technology have made remote work accessible to professionals from all levels and industries.
As a result of this realization, a study from Lemon.io shows that Google inquiries for “work when you want remote jobs” grew by 556%, while searches for “remote positions” increased by 85%.
Companies have noticed too — more and more organizations have begun offering some form of flexibility in their arrangements in order to entice top talent. But in order for professionals to stand apart from other remote job seekers, more work will need to be done.
For starters, when interviewing for a remote position, professionals need to show a dedication to results and seeing remote work as an asset, rather than a hindrance.
This will also require experience in prioritizing community in the workplace.
Because operating with a distributed workforce does take more effort to keep lines of communication open, the interviewee should recognize and demonstrate how they foster relationships.
