How to put your best foot forward—remotely

Competition for remote positions is fierce, especially for roles that don’t require much previous work experience. To help you put your best foot forward in the remote space, Remote.co’s Career Coach Brie Reynolds shares four questions to answer proactively in the application and interview process.

1. Why am I a competent remote worker?

“If you’re applying for a remote job, your resume should tell employers that you’ve got what it takes to not only do their job, but do it remotely,” says Reynolds. In other words, it’s crucial to highlight the skills you possess that are specific to remote work.

“Written and verbal communication, independent worker, organized and productive, great time and task manager, and having a growth mindset are all valuable traits in a remote worker,” says Reynolds.

2. What previous remote-work experience do I have?

“If you’ve worked at a distance from your coworkers, across time zones or physical distances, that counts,” says Reynolds. “If you’ve worked from home occasionally or regularly, if you earned a degree or certification online, or if you volunteered on a project where you did most of the work from your home office, all of that counts.”

Even if it wasn’t fully remote, any kind of work from home is an opportunity to highlight. “Remote work skills and experience can come in many forms and they should be mentioned on your resume if you want to land a remote job,” Reynolds advises.

3. Is my resume tailored to this particular career opportunity?

When applying for a position, customize your resume to align with the job description. “Use a professional summary and list of skills at the top of the resume that can be edited and updated to include keywords and key phrases from the job description,” says Reynolds. This doesn’t mean copying it word for word, but presenting yourself as a great match based on what the employer is looking for.

To do this effectively, Reynolds says you don’t have to rewrite your entire resume. “You should absolutely spend time making sure your document is keyword-rich in at least those top two sections—summary and key skills—using the same language from the job description.”

4. Why do I want to work remotely?

Although it seems like remote work is the only choice for companies right now, employers are hiring remote workers for the long term and want to know you’re in it for more than just the benefits of remote work. During the interview, focus on how being able to work remotely enhances your contribution to the company—not just how it makes your life easier. “Prepare to talk about how you’re more productive and effective when you work from home because you’re better able to focus, or you’re not worrying about catching a train home at the end of the day, or because you can design a home office space that energizes and focuses you on your work,” says Reynolds.

What not to talk about? “Don’t discuss the personal benefits, because employers already assume these—things like getting more time back in your day and having better work-life balance,” says Reynolds.

“Throughout the entire process, make it as much about the company as possible.” This is a good stance to take not just for remote jobs, but for every position you apply for—remote, hybrid or in the office.

Thinking through these questions ahead of time will help you answer confidently when they come up in the interview. Better yet, you’ll be equipped to embed your answers proactively in your resume and cover letter—demonstrating your fitness for the new remote workplace.
