An old fashioned, MBA-style resume just won’t cut it on today’s job market. More and more companies are offering a wider range of remote positions, and you need to raise your resume above the crowd if you want an interview for your remote dream job.
What’s the solution? A revamped version of your current resume customized to showcase all the skills required for a remote position. By taking this approach, employers will see that not only can you do the job well; but also that your desire to work remotely isn’t some signifier of laziness or lack of ambition. In fact, it’s quite the opposite!
Working remotely means more time with family and friends, less stress, and generally better health. When hiring managers read about your achievements and how they reflect your ability to work with minimal guidance, commitment to deadlines, and higher productivity, they’ll typically be more likely to pick up the phone and call you for an interview.
Don’t just tell them you’re a better employee when you’re working from home. Show them. Describe how your average call times with clients decreased while your service ratings increased when you worked from home. Paint a picture of how your sales numbers shot through the roof when you closed deals from the comfort of your home office.
