Remote work is focused on execution

Working remotely is much more results focused than hours-worked focused.

Some remote companies won’t monitor your hours worked, but they’ll be monitoring your deliverables. Some remote positions will require 9:00-5:00 work hours, but others won’t at all. 

If you love your work, you’re a genuine person, and you tailor your resume to remote companies. You’re on the right track to landing a remote job.

Remote companies want people that are passionate about what they do

If you are getting a remote job just because you hate your work, and you’re hoping that working from home will help...unfortunately, it won’t. Working from home might even make it worse.

Working from home offers myriad wonderful distractions. Your TV might be calling your name at lunch, and your dog might be calling your name all day. If you’re not motivated to work, you likely won’t work if no one is looking over your shoulder.
