Be aware of the many different phrases used in job listings to mean "remote work", such as distributed workforce, work-from-home, virtual job, and more. Use the right keywords in your search.
Carefully note if roles are fully 100% remote or hybrid remote/in-office jobs. Many remote jobs also have location requirements so check for those.
Watch for red flags in job posts like info requests early on, upfront fees, or claims that seem too good to be true. Thoroughly research companies and job titles along with "scam" to uncover any issues.
Specialized job search platforms thoroughly vet and curate remote and flexible job opportunities to help job seekers avoid scams and find quality openings.
Even without direct remote work experience, draw out examples of skills like time management, self-motivation, proactive communication, and using collaboration tools that translate well to remote roles.
Set up required technology, secure a professional space, practice remote position-specific common interview questions, and test equipment to ensure smooth video interviews.
Search open remote positions at leading work-from-home companies in your field to find the right professional remote fit for you!
