Remote Work Round-Up

Feb. 7th 2018

So you've taken a look at our remote job listings and found a company that would make your #CareerGoals a reality. It's time to take the process one step further and actually apply to the job, but there's a catch - you've never worked remotely before. If one thing's for sure about the interview process for a remote company, it's that you're going to be asked if you've ever worked remotely and what working remotely looks like for you, personally.


Don't be discouraged! There are plenty of people who've transitioned from traditional office settings to the flexible life of a remote worker. More than experience, the success of a remote employee comes from the personality traits they posses, and these traits are actually more common than you think! Forbes recently published an article highlighting 10 traits you should be looking for in a remote employee, and we've shared them below:

  1. They Value Results Over Process
  2. They're Self-Starters
  3. They Can Successfully Complete A Test Project
  4. They're Punctual And Responsive
  5. They're Motivated By Something Larger Than Themselves
  6. They're Natural Problem Solvers
  7. They're Detail Oriented And Can Track Their KPIs
  8. They Possess A Strong Technical Aptitude
  9. They've Worked On A Remote Team Before
  10. They Have A Growth Mindset

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

There are other variants of this acronym such as LGBT, LGBTQ, and LGBTQQIP2SAA, which all refer to the same community.)
