Sure tips to land remote jobs in your niche

Acquiring skills is one thing, but landing remote jobs in that niche is another. Yet many remote workers are landing great jobs because they follow the principles that guide skills and job offers.

Remote work, in the actual sense, is not only left for freelancers, but you still can not talk about it without unintentionally thinking about freelancing.

So, while this post favors people who identify as freelancers, anyone who wishes to work remotely without the freelancing tag will also benefit greatly.

There’s always a beginning to everything. This informative blog post will serve as that starting point if you apply the knowledge you gain here.

Without further ado, let us get down to brass tacks.

Does remote jobs mean working from home?

Working remotely does not necessarily mean that you must work from home. It could be anywhere other than the office. You may even be on vacation and still be working; you can work while you watch your kids play at the park. It could still be from home, in your pajamas, and sitting in your garden.

Achieving this working style involves employing some niche-based digital tools or software to do the job assigned to you. You also communicate with your team or colleagues if your job demands it.

Steps to land remote jobs for the first time

Imagine needing a remote job but searching desperately in all the wrong places. Regardless of how long and hard you search, it will remain futile.

To break into this sphere, know that there are unspoken rules that have helped remote job seekers enhance their chances and land these jobs. We will get into that in the next paragraph.

Where do you start from as a remote job seeker?

Brush up your portfolio

How else can a remote job seeker land a job if they do not prove themselves worthy? To prove yourself worthy, you must arm yourself with a shiny portfolio.

Your portfolio must contain jobs that can be traced back to you, feedback from previous clients, certificates, and glowing reviews. Your portfolio speaks for you when you are not there to defend yourself.

If you do not have one, it’s time to get to work. Select your best jobs and boldly but kindly ask your previous employers or clients to send you some honest reviews. Then, put a portfolio together, polish it off, and move on to the next step below.

Put yourself out there

Look around you; those favs you love and scroll through their social media pages did not get there by keeping quiet. You know that, right?

They did something to become known and get loved by you and others. Therefore, it is time to leave your shell and comfort, put yourself out on social media, and start becoming a strong voice in your field.

One way remote job seekers land that fantastic job is by building a brand online.

Many beautiful remote job stories began with someone getting tired of their comfort zone and setting up an employable social media profile. Become your brand by carving a niche for yourself on social media.

Here is the drill: because of your voice and brand, recruiters or companies scouting for talents like yours will find you and offer you a job. Also, people will begin to read and trust you enough to refer you.

Human Resources (HRs) are important people

Become acquainted with HRs of big companies who are interactive on social media. Start by commenting on their posts.

Listen to them and read them properly when they hint at a vacancy or offer tips for landing jobs in their company. You can learn a lot about job applications and offers from them and know when it is time to politely ask them about vacancies in their companies.

If you play your cards well, you can have jobs to select from. Before you take this step, ensure you understand boundaries and have a good approach.

Learn how to craft cover letters

If you are still of the school of thought that one cover letter serves all job applications, then you need to quit there. For every job application, you must write a cover letter tailored to the job.

Like your portfolio, your cover letter does a lot of heavy lifting for you while on the HR’s table. So, craft a sharp one to help it build some muscles. Do not forget about updating your Resume regularly.

Apply for remote jobs at the right places

Job boards are great but far more competitive, as are freelancing websites like Upwork or Fiverr. I do not speak badly of these sites; they have indeed been a source of Blessing and financial freedom for millions of people, including myself.

The other side is that these freelancing sites can land you a full-time remote job. While they may not be ideal for a beginner, they hold prospects.

Meanwhile, channel more of your focus on companies that offer remote job opportunities. Their job vacancies are not as competitive, and you stand a good chance of getting selected.

Practice answering interview questions online

Remember that we are focused on remote jobs, and interviews are bound to be done online. One way to excel in interviews is to practice having one online.

First, follow pages that discuss jobs and give interview tips. Instagram has many such pages.

Secondly, have a friend jump on a quick call with you on Zoom. Prepare some interview questions related to your field, and have your friend ask you these questions.

Lastly, take it seriously as a mock interview and try to play dress up for the meeting.

Building your confidence for the main event starts this way.

Learn to follow up with emails

After landing a remote job and going through interviews, the company might get distracted and delay your offer letter. This is when you can send a reminder email to HR or your potential employer.

Let this email serve as a gentle reminder that you are still waiting and would love to start your position as soon as possible. Your email should not sound off-ish, desperate, derogatory, or commanding. Your communication skills will play a role here.


To draw the curtain, keeping a positive mindset during your job hunting and waiting period is essential. Always remember that remote jobs are competitive and need professionalism.
