3 Remote Work Readiness Tips

A post-pandemic world has seen a lot of organizations not go back to working regular brick and mortar office conditions. A lot of organizations have realized that employees are able to still deliver efficiently while working from home. .

While remote work is increasingly becoming popular, especially for technology companies, it is not as relatively seamless as one would think. There is a lot of adjusting to be done in the manner with which teams typically communicate and collaborate. For this reason, recruiters are seeking specific qualities in applicants, who might not necessarily have had previous remote work experience, but are able to demonstrate skills relevant to the role. 

In this article, we will explore 3 tips that will help you prepare for your remote work career.


  • Research the company and Interviewer beforehand: As soon as you receive the email scheduling an interview session with you, your next step should be to immediately google the company. Check linkedin for their company profile, search for the manager(s) in the current role you are interviewing for. Going into the interview armed with all of this information will let the interviewer know that you are interested in their company, beyond just remuneration.
  • Practice with scheduled video conferencing tools: Considering that you are being interviewed for a remote role, you don’t want the first time you ever use a video conferencing tool like Zoom, to be at your interview. Most likely, the meeting venue would have been communicated with you already. Practice with the specified tool, attempt to anticipate the possible use case of that tool during the interview and practice accordingly. It might be complex and difficult at first but practice truly does make perfect.
  • Display your knowledge of remote work tools on your resume: Collaboration tools like slack, Notion; Project management tools like Asana or Jira, are popular tools most remote teams work with. Even if you do not have prior remote work experience, you might have used either of these tools at your previous job or even in school. Articulating this experience on your resume is important, because recruiters might be looking out for that.


Remote work is here to stay and as a job seeker, it is important to learn the relevant tools and tips that will help you continue to advance your career.
