Treat Your Telecommute Job Search Like a Full-time Job

Finding the right telecommute job is a challenge that you won’t conquer until you treat searching for a job like a full-time job.

Let’s do the math:

The more resumes you send out + The more people you network with = The more likely you are to get the job you want.

Don’t fall into the unemployment trap of treating your time between jobs like a vacation. Treat your job search like a full time job with these easy tips:

  • Set your alarm, get up, and get dressed for work
  • Start your job search the same time every morning
  • Set daily networking goals
  • Establish firm goals for how many new jobs you will find, companies you will research, and resumes you will submit each day
  • Schedule lunch and afternoon breaks
  • Stay organized with an application tracking system

BONUS TIP: I maintain a list of contacts in a spreadsheet so I know exactly who I’ve talked to and who needs to be called or emailed.

  • Invest in a professional job lead service like Virtual Vocations. We work hard to find you the newest telecommuting job leads so your job-search is faster, easier and safer.
