Are you a professional with five or more years of experience in your career field? Do you feel like now is the right time to start looking for telecommuting positions, but you’re not exactly sure how to market your skills and strengths? A new Virtual Vocations subscriber benefit delivers solutions!
For many mid-level and executive professionals, making the transition from one’s current position to a telecommuting job can seem like a daunting task, but it needn’t be. One of our newest subscriber benefits is designed to alleviate the reservations of experienced professionals aiming to transition from an onsite job to one that allows them the flexibility to telecommute.
Virtual Vocations is excited to introduce our Telecommuting for Mid-level & Executive Professionals E-Course, in which we seek to answer many of the questions job seekers have when stepping back out into the job market. Available as a benefit for our members, this e-course will help you take your next career step with confidence.
Telecommuting for Mid-level & Executive Professionals is a three-day program that will provide you with all the tools needed to make the most out of your job search. The course was created with professionals in mind, specifically those with five or more years of experience in their chosen job field who are ready to make a successful transition into telework.
The course’s goal is to provide job seekers with fundamental knowledge and resources to help make this transition more effective and informed. At the end of the three-day course, students will have:
- A streamlined and professional resume, one that will easily pass through any Applicant Tracking System (ATS) filter and thus be more likely to land in the hands of a recruiter
- Insights into the most popular telecommute job categories and companies that are telecommute-friendly
- A LinkedIn profile that is visible and attractive to recruiters seeking telework applicants
Let’s look a little more in-depth at what the program has to offer. The course is provided via email and is divided into five segments, over three days.
On day one, subscribers receive an introduction which gives an overview of the program. Also arriving on the first day is a useful guide on how to revamp your resume.
Today, many employers use an Applicant Tracking System (ATS), which allows them to sort through numerous resumes at once and filter out the ones that don’t match certain keywords. This practice often is the determining factor as to whether or not your application will actually be seen by a recruiter.
Our in-house team developed a list of dos and don’ts that will help your resume be read by hiring managers. We provide you with an easy-to-follow guide as well as a downloadable template for creating your own ATS friendly resume.
Day two of this course brings with it tips on how to go about building a telecommuting proposal for your current employer. The section includes a downloadable Telecommuting Proposal Packet, which contains an exclusive proposal template and over 10 pages of crucial information for when it’s time to present a case to your boss as to the benefits of converting your position to either partially or fully telecommute.
The accompanying section that arrives on day two explores the importance of optimizing your LinkedIn profile. Overlooked by some job seekers who view it as simply another social media site like Facebook, LinkedIn is actually a very important platform that most companies use when searching for prospective hires. This section comes with advice on how to develop your LinkedIn profile so you get results.
The finale of the Telecommuting for Mid-Level & Executive Professionals e-course wraps up with a course conclusion summarizing the lessons and providing some context concerning next steps.
If you’re a mid-level or executive professional looking to dip your toes into the telecommuting job search, Virtual Vocations’ three-day course will provide you with all of the important tools you need. It delves into the fundamentals of job hunting for anyone who has five or more years of experience in one field, and harnesses the power of social media to provide you with some of the best insights on the market.
