Participant Testimonial:
"Lynn's personal branding workshop was great. I really enjoyed it and learned several new ways of distilling my experience. I was able to put some of it into practice the next day during a phone interview - I had a case story at the ready. I also enjoyed "Calling Cards" and have shared the exercise with two friends. I always find Lynn's input and advice to be so helpful."

7 Questions You Should Definitely Ask When Interviewing
for a Remote Job
If you’re interviewing for a remote job, digging into the culture of the company where you’re hoping to work should be a top priority. And understanding the remote work culture specifically is even more crucial. Why? As experts point out, remote work can provide you many things—such as freedom from a commute and the environment of your own choosing—but it’s also important to ensure that you’ll be able to work well with your teammates and manager, flourish in your role, and have the chance to advance your career.

Remote work looks different depending on the organization and its setup. If your entire team is working off-site and everyone is well-versed in using Slack, Zoom, and Asana, joining the company as a remote worker might be easy. If, however, you’re the only employee having to call into a monthly team meeting from afar, the experience might be more isolating than fulfilling.

“If you’re the odd person out, it might not be so great working from home. You might feel left out,” says April Klimkiewicz, career coach and founder of Bliss Evolution. That’s why she’s a big advocate for exploring the company culture and what it means for you as a remote worker. ....read more here
