2 things you need to land a work from home job
Jump to section

Across a variety of industries, more people are working from home than ever before, and this trend shows no signs of slowing anytime soon. If you are searching for a remote position, here are two essential things you need before you can successfully land a role.

Have your resume ready-to-go and easily accessible

Work from home positions fill up QUICK so you must be prepared to apply fast. Having a spruced up resume on deck allows you to submit your application as soon as jobs become available.

Filling out your Jobcase profile is a great way to ensure you’re ready to go at all times whether you are at home or on the go. Having a completed profile on Jobcase enables you to have a portable job search since an online profile is always up to date, easily accessible from your phone, and allows you to be discoverable by employers.

You can even have Jobcase instantly format a resume for you right from your profile.

Unfortunately, fake remote job listings are common. Here are tips on how to spot a work from home scam.

Find your at-home "office space"

Working from home can be quite an adjustment. Here are some quick tips on how you can be successful working from home.

Arrange a workspace

Finding a place to work comfortably will be important when working from home. If possible, try to set up a spot that has minimal traffic from others in the house to avoid distractions. Arrange the space so that it is most convenient for you and your productivity. If you are using a space that has another function during off-hours (kitchen table, spare bedroom, etc.) there are organizational tools such as binders and collapsible table-top desks that can help you easily store your "office" in between shifts.

Get the tools you need

Some #workfromhome jobs will provide you with equipment, others will not. Make sure you have a strong WiFi connection, a functioning computer, and a reliable cellphone. Some other useful tools:

  • A comfortable office chair
  • A headset with an earpiece and microphone
  • A second monitor to help with productivity
  • External keyboard and mouse
  • Printer/scanner

Make a plan to overcome distractions

It’s likely that there will be disturbances at some point during your workday. Some things to be prepared for while working from home include:

  • People traffic near your workspace
  • Other conversations happening near your workspace
  • Package deliveries
  • Unexpected visitors
  • Pet interruptions

Some of these distractions are unavoidable but do your best to plan ahead to ensure maximum focus and productivity.
