How to stand out from the crowd

Competition for remote jobs has become fierce, and Spencer shared his best suggestions with ConsumerAffairs on how to land a remote job this summer. 

“A generic resume and a cookie-cutter cover letter will no longer suffice in today’s remote job market,” Spencer said.

“It’s absolutely crucial that consumers are taking the time to gain clarity about the type of role they want to target and closely analyzing job descriptions to understand what employers are looking for in potential candidates. Consumers should also aim to tailor and customize their application materials to showcase their relevant skills and experience for each role, as well as some accomplishments that highlight the positive results they are capable of delivering. 

“It's also important to reference any previous remote experience you might have and to demonstrate that you possess the necessary skills to be effective in a remote environment,” he added. “Include information about your communication, time management, problem solving, and teamwork skills, as well as your ability to use common remote communication and collaboration tools, will give employers confidence that you can perform successfully in a remote capacity.

Spencer’s final piece of advice: get to networking! 

“People who are doing the type of work that you hope to do one day and in the type of environment in which you want to work can be a great source of helpful information––and can even refer you to open roles at their company,” he said. “Take time to identify and engage with these types of professionals, laying the foundation for a strong relationship that could lead to some interesting opportunities you might not have otherwise found.”
