Tips For LinkedIn’s Job Hunting

LinkedIn will include tips from experts with each of its monthly reports on in-demand skills and jobs. This month’s tips are especially in regard to help people land a remote job right now:

“LinkedIn’s Workforce Confidence Index shows people are feeling pretty good about working remotely. 55% of survey respondents said that long-term remote work would be successful in their industry. However, finding a job remotely, even if you’ll be going into a workplace eventually, is a little different than an in-person interview process.”

Three Tips On Landing A Perfect Remote Job Right Now:

  • Set Job Alerts: Set the notifications for the latest job postings. The data by LinkedIn shows that people are 4X more likely to get a revert from a job if you apply within the first 10 minutes.
  • Update Profile Settings: Let the recruiters know that you are open to remote job opportunities by updating your “open to work” settings.
  • Train Yourself For Video Interviews: If you are someone who is new to the remote work, then take some time to train yourself for the process of a video interview.
