JobsHome contacted leading resume experts on the best ways to create a great resume for remote job seekers and virtual assistants. Applying for a work-at-home job is different than regular jobs which means you need a resume specifically for these type of positions. We provide some excellent tips that will get your resume in shape.
Providing the normal sections such as an objective, education and work experience are must haves. However for work-at-home jobs, you need to include information that helps an employer know that you have the equipment and software needed to work from home.
When adding skills and qualification, do not forget to include telecommuting specific skills such as being able to work independently and having reliable email and Internet access.
Creating a separate section for your home office that contains all your office equipment is advisable. You should also include any software such MS Word or Excel here as well.
Last but not least, gear your whole resume toward a work-at-home position. For instance, when listing your job duties, always select the ones that show your independence, reliability and trust worthiness because these are all attributes that employers that hire virtual assistants are looking for in a remote worker.
