As many companies shift to a virtual workplace, there are more openings — and a higher demand for remote jobs. Forbes contributor Cecilia Seiter gives advice on how to secure a virtual gig.
Tailor Your Résumé for Remote Jobs
Be clear that you’re intentionally looking for remote work in your summary/personal statement. Use terms like “location independent” as an alternative to giving your address. Highlight any skills you have that would be relevant for a remote job. If you have any previous remote work experience, don’t forget to add it in your CV!

There are plenty of job boards that have thousands of listings you can access at your fingertips. Read more about the all of the job boards that offer remote work here.
Prepare for Remote-Specific Interview Questions
Because remote jobs call for a specific skillset, you may be subject to questions in your interview assessing your ability to work virtually. A few examples might be if you’ve had a remote job previously, experience with digital collaboration tools, how you stay organized in a digital workplace and communication skills.
