Why can't you land a remote job?

arcdotdev profile image Arc ・2 min read

You're a software engineer with strong technical skills and years of industry experience. But job application after job application, you just aren't landing the job. Frustrating, right? You're perfectly qualified for your dream remote job, so why aren't you getting hired?

Here's what you're doing wrong.

You're an outstanding candidate, but the employers aren't seeing it. This is the problem. You could invent the best product of all time, but if you don't market it well, nobody will buy it. This is the same with your remote job search. You are the product. And employers aren't buying. So it's time to learn how to sell yourself better!

Building your personal brand 🔥

What makes your product (you!) unique? How can you stand out from the crowd? There are people everywhere with your technical skills and experience. You need to figure out what makes you different and use it to your advantage. Are you a master problem-solver? Are you a kickass communicator? Are you exceptionally passionate and dedicated to your work?

Even if you can't think of something right now, there IS something that makes you special. And if you learn how to show this during the remote application process, you WILL get hired.
