High-paying remote jobs are highly competitive and coveted. Because they require a unique set of skills, job seekers should be prepared to showcase their competency and fit as a remote worker. After conveying one’s remote work experience and skills intentionally through strategic cover letters and resumes, job seekers can then demonstrate during the interview process that they have the skills and knowledge to be an outstanding virtual worker.

10 Tips to Prepare and Showcase Remote Work Expertise During an Interview:

  1. Prepare a designated interview space free from clutter and distraction to have the meeting.
  2. Download and test the software that will be used for the interview (it’s okay to ask ahead of time what platform will be used).
  3. Turn on the webcam prior to a video call to check your surroundings and ensure nothing within view is in motion or inappropriate.
  4. Close all unnecessary software, turn off notifications on your computer and phone, and make sure your computer is fully charged.
  5. Place the video meeting window at the top of the screen, as close to your computer’s camera as possible.
  6. Dress professionally (not just from the shoulders up) and avoid fabric or jewelry that might disturb a microphone or be too busy or shiny on screen.
  7. Offer to give a tour of your office or share the photos to showcase a highly functional remote home office environment.
  8. Talk tech – digital communication is essential for all teams, but it plays a particularly important role when workers are based in different locations. Promising candidates are aware of various communication and collaboration tools, such as Trello, Slack, and Google Docs, and they showcase a willingness to learn new ones.
  9. Demonstrate awareness of common remote work pitfalls such as unplugging after hours, distractions, or loneliness, and the steps you will take to minimize them.
  10. Share a remote work backup plan in case you experience a power outage, tech or Internet issues.
