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!

  7. They're Detail Oriented And Can Track Their KPIs
  8. They Possess A Strong Technical Aptitude
