Getting a remote job is no more difficult than a normal job, it’s just different

Knowing the remote community is a huge step towards getting a remote job. Most people give up because remote companies are hard to find.  

There are less companies offering remote positions, relative to the overall job market. You need to be able to find those positions and get to them quickly. Knowing the right job site is the finding part, and social media is the way to learn about postings quickly.

You’ll get really good insight into remote work culture by just following remote company blogs and social media. 

Half the battle to landing a remote job is knowing where to look, and knowing the community of remote companies, but that’s still not going to land you a job. Remote companies are very careful about who they hire, and they’re looking for some pretty specific attributes.

The same can be said for landing a remote job. The job application is not harder, it’s just a bit different. If you immerse yourself in the remote community and show passion for your work, you are sure to separate yourself from other remote job seekers.
