Frequently Asked Questions
Are you going to recommend multi-level marketing (MLM) companies?
Absolutely not! In case you’re not familiar, MLMs involve direct selling to friends and family and recruiting others into your “downline” to make money. You have to shell out money to the company and then try to peddle products to others. Sound like a pyramid scheme? It usually is! You may have seen posts promoting MLMs in Facebook groups, but they’re at best a waste of your time and energy and at worst, a downright scam. Beware!
What if I’m not a coder or a programmer? Can I still get a remote job?
Yes, that’s no problem at all. Although tech skills are certainly hot commodities in the remote job market, they are definitely not the only skills that lend themselves to remote work. We’re going to go over lots of other options for remote work (for example, I’ve built my career as a remote content writer!).
Are you sure I don’t need technical skills?
Absolutely! In fact, only one in three jobs in the tech industry are actually technical. That means 2/3 of job openings aren’t considered technical at all. You’ll need to know your way around a computer to work online of course, but you don’t need to know how to code or design websites or anything like that.
What if I just graduated and haven’t had a full-time job before?
Great question! New graduates face that frustrating Catch-22 where employers want to see experience before hiring you for a job, but you of course can’t get experience until you get hired for a job. We’ll talk about some alternative ways to gain experience and boost your resume, as well as how to present the skills and education you do have to impress a remote employer.
Can I land a remote job even if I’ve never worked remotely before?
For sure, everyone needs to start somewhere! We’ll talk about how to identify your transferable skills and experiences that would lend themselves to a remote position, as well as how to present them on your resume and cover letter.
I have no idea what job I want. Will this course help me figure out my career goals?
Figuring out your career is not the main focus of this course. We’ll talk about how to identify your transferable skills and explore some popular remote positions, but we’re not going to go in depth about how to find your professional calling. That said, all the remote job research you do might lead you to uncover a new passion!
What if I’m not from the U.S.? Will this course help me?
Yes, this course was designed to help any job seekers who are looking for full-time remote work. Although we highlight some U.S.-based tech companies, most of these organizations hire talented professionals from all over the world. Note that some of the benefits we talk about might vary for international applicants (like health insurance, for example).
Will I need to purchase anything else once I get the course?
Nope! I have a few recommendations for paid services that can be helpful on the job search, but they’re definitely not required. In fact, I don’t really recommend paying for extra assistance unless you hit a wall and need that extra one-on-one help to break through and achieve your goals.
Is there a time limit to complete the course? How long do I have access?
You’ll get immediate access to the course and can access it anytime. There’s no time limit to completing the course — you'll have lifetime access to the course and any updates, so you can go at your own pace!
What format is the content delivered in?
The majority of the course is in video content, so I can walk you through each lesson in an easy-to-understand way. You’ll also have some documents and PDFs of the extra resources, such as the resume templates and job search tracker.
Is my credit card secure?
Absolutely. I take credit card security extremely seriously, which is why I use Stripe to handle billing. It provides secure 128-bit encryption, which is the same level of security that banks use. When you purchase this course, you can feel comfortable knowing that your transaction is 100% safe and protected.
