2 Show your workspace:

  • While you may not show up to a workplace  every workday at 9:00, the expectations are the same for you, working from a home office - emphasis on the office. On all video calls look well-rested, and dressed professionally
  • To raise the comfort level of a hiring  manager, put together an amazing work-from-home office space and show it as soon as possible in a video interview.

Why do some companies not offer remote work?

  • They are concerned that some remote workers will not work as hard as someone in office.
  • They are worried that some remote workers will work 2 jobs at the same time.
  • They believe there is a culture in the company, and it would be damaged or lost with remote workers.

3Demonstrate your calendar work ethic

  • If the hiring company expects you to be working at a certain time or on specific days, review this requirement with them and comment that you have no conflicts or issues at that time.
  • You can share your availability beyond their requirements to see if they would prefer a better time.
  • Always reiterate that when you spend hours on their work, you are fully focused on just them.

How do you alleviate these concerns?

  1. 1. Show you’ve done remote work before
  2. 2. Demonstrate your output and performance
  3. 3. Prove you can save the co. $
  4. 4. Show you have mentored, helped or trained co-workers in the past
