11 ways to Land a Remote Job (that pays well)

Thread ๐Ÿ‘‡
1. Use Twitter:

Many companies advertise job openings on Twitter, so it can be a good idea to follow relevant accounts and be an active user and a recognized face here.
2. Network and reach out to potential employers:

Attend industry events, join relevant online communities, and connect with other professionals in your field.

This can help you meet potential employers and learn about job opportunities.
3. Use GitHub:

GitHub is a platform for developers, and many companies use it to advertise job openings and find talented developers.

Moreover having a solid Github profile also serves as a 'proof of work' and will help you immensely.
4. Contribute to open source projects:

Contributing to OS helps you build your skills and your reputation in the developer community.

It also your communication skills and team-working abilities.

I can't stress this one enough.

Be an OS contributor and you'll stand out!
5. Use job search websites:

There are many websites that specialize in helping remote workers find jobs, such as Remote . co and We Work Remotely.

Leverage these opportunities and help them help you.
6. Use LinkedIn:

LinkedIn is a professional networking site that can be a great resource for finding remote jobs.

Connect with other professionals from the industry, join relevant groups, and search for jobs using keywords such as "remote".
7. Look for remote-friendly companies:

Many companies are open to hiring remote workers, even if they don't specifically advertise remote positions.

You can search for these companies using websites like RemoteWorkHQ or Virtual Vocations.
8. Join a remote work community:

There are many online communities for remote workers that can be a good resource for finding job opportunities.

Some examples include the Remote Work Hub and the Digital Nomad Forum.
9. Use your social media presence:

Make sure your social media profiles accurately reflect your skills and experience as a developer.

This can make you more visible to potential employers.

Share what you've learnt, the mistakes you made and how you overcame them.
10. Use AngelList:

AngelList is a job board that focuses on startups, many of which are open to hiring remote workers.

While a little risky, joining a startup has benefits as well.

You get to learn a ton. You'll have more authority and your growth trajectory will be sharper.
11. Check company websites:

Many companies post job openings on their own websites, so check the careers or jobs section of company websites that interest you.

You should always have a list of companies you can potentially see yourself working for.

Comes in really handy!
