5 Tips For Finding And Landing A Remote Job In 2022

In the age of the internet, a person can find just about anything online.   While that statement is true, how does that work when it comes to finding remote jobs?  How do you know where to look?

This past year does have its pros believe it or not.  So many companies were forced to have their employees work remotely.  Many companies came to see a stark advantage to remote workers.  First, companies’ overhead was cut by a reduction in office space. Second, many companies began to see more productivity from their remote workers.

Now as the pandemic is hopefully coming to an end and more and more companies are back up to speed, some of those companies are choosing to continue with remote staff either by choice or offering a choice to their employees.  Still, other companies are utilizing fully remote staff as it opens the company up to a wider range of employee selection since they are no longer restricted by a specific location.

Now, what are your next steps?

Let me preface this list by saying that these tips below will apply to higher-level remote jobs as opposed to very low pay/entry-level remote jobs.


  1. Make sure remote work is really what you want – review the pros and cons (we discussed them in the June 28 LinkedIn Live that can be found >>HERE<< . Using LinkedIn as your personal “website” can help people see you and it may give them the idea that your services are a fit for them.  That is how I get clients.  I show them what they didn’t” know they needed.


  1. Decide what type of remote job is the right fit for you. Specifically, are you looking for full-time, US-based or another country, hybrid on-location plus remote or even part-time?


  1. Build a strong LinkedIn profile that showcases your skills and accomplishments, as well as, how you think, communicate, and the knowledge that you have for the job you want.


  1. Reach out to companies that currently are still utilizing a remote workforce, as well as, reach out to your network for any companies or jobs they are aware of in your industry or field. Prepare a target company list especially to keep track of the companies you hear about and are researching. Think outside the box for companies or even jobs that you may not have considered.  Job boards are just one of the many places, so look beyond job boards.  Read news articles and magazines like Inc. looking for companies that mention remote workers.


  1. Tailor your resume for a remote job application – meaning be sure that you are knowledgeable about online tools, apps, or any other software that your job may require. Also really emphasize your communication skills, self-sufficiency, and autonomy.


There are certain industries that will allow more remote work than other industries.

  • Computer/information technology
  • Marketing
  • Content creation
  • Teaching – any level school, public or private, and non-traditional schools or workshops
  • Human resources and recruiting
  • Customer service


No matter what you choose, remember to look in a wide variety of places and talk to a wide variety of people. Remote jobs can be ideal for the right reasons, but they can also be wrong for many reasons as well.

The Five Essential Qualities of a Great Place to Work

1. A Culture of Care

“caring” is the word most used to describe our most workplace that people want to work in — and it speaks volumes.

Employees in a high-trust culture, who believe they’re part of a caring workplace, are also 44 percent more likely to work for a company with above-average revenue growth. Why such a dramatic correlation? A culture of caring is an engagement-trifecta:

  1. Leaders show employees they’re valued
  2. Employees care for each other and your clients
  3. The entire organization cares that their shared vision is realized

2. Promote Clear Definitions of Success

What does success look like in a certain role? What are the clear indicators of company success? What skills can help you become more successful? A great place to work will provide a crystal-clear definition for each. These benchmarks for success are found in quarterly or annual employee goals, departmental goals, and company goals. Timely reviews and regular syncs ensure employees feel their priorities match expectations. These progress checks should be backed by outlets for educational growth:

  • Consider offering tuition reimbursement or on-the-job training
  • Connect employees with online educational platforms (Udemy, Coursera, Linkedin Learning, etc.)
  • Encourage managers to develop professional development plans for employees

When employees know what it means to be successful (and how they can get there) they feel empowered to show up as their best selves each day.

3. Leaders That Embrace a “Compass” Identity

Strong leadership is a given for a great place to work; however, it’s only effective when visible. Your leadership team should take a uniformed stance that is clearly communicated and accessible to employees. Institute open door policies, regularly sync as an organization and identify a shared vision that is authentic and consistent. Leaders should act as a compass and position their employees for what’s ahead.

4. Flexibility

Scroll through any list of “great places to work” and you’re sure to see flexibility. Employees lives are no longer dictated by the hands of the clock, the ability to embrace flexible work schedules and choose to work remotely is critical. With the advancements in technology, historic limitations to a flexible work environment have quickly dissipated.

5. Encourage an Intrapreneurial Mindset

Give employees the freedom to chart their own course within your organization. Encourage them to speak up when gaps arise or when their passions can breed way to innovation within your business. Let your people’s inherit skills and abilities guide their career path.
