Best Remote Jobs: Where & How to Find ThemThe Covid-19 pandemic hasn’t been easy on any of us, but if there’s one silver lining, it’s the fact that remote work has grown in popularity because of it. Companies that previously weren’t open to their employees working remotely were suddenly forced into allowing it. Since then, they've realized that much of their workforce is happier and more productive. Naturally, this has led to more remote job openings, which is great if you’re interested in this type of position. Read on to learn more about the best remote jobs and where to find them. to Write a Short BioFirst impressions can be tricky. When meeting someone in person, it’s likely you have an elevator speech. These short, practiced introductions can help you share more about who you are, what you do for work and other facts about you. While this works well in a live, in-person context, there are many cases where professionals “meet” someone via written form - like social media, a resume, or published work. In these cases, your bio works as your first impression. So, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to write a short bio. to Conduct a Performance Review (With Examples)In a world where the smallest mistake can cost your business tens of thousands in lost revenue, your talent is key to keeping your edge on the market and driving growth. However, managing a workforce of any size can be a challenge. Employees come with their own particular skill set, ambitions and flaws. So, it can be difficult to uncover their individual drivers. Not to mention the challenges brought on by the hybrid and remote working models where in-person interactions have become few and far between. to Recruit Passive CandidatesLearning to recruit passive candidates is a different ballgame than recruiting active ones. While an active candidate is someone who is currently looking for a new job, a passive candidate tends to be the opposite. Passive candidates are either already working or not looking to work. So, instead of these candidates coming to you, you'll have to find them and reach out to them first. to Effectively Recruit EmployeesToday, hiring and retaining talent looks much different than it did only two or three years ago. Financial instability and the strain on our mental health brought on by the pandemic has made everyone more wary and selective of their workplace and employer. Whereas in the past people might have prioritized promotions and financial reward, today they look at other factors such as workplace flexibility, personal fulfillment and values alignment. Many Hours is Part-Time vs. Full-Time Work?Growing up you watched your parents shuffle to and from the office, held hostage to their 9 to 5. If jammed-packed schedules and deadlines sound frightening, you might consider pivoting your search to part-time jobs. In fact, even employers have shifted their preference, selecting more people open to the idea of flexible working hours.
