Business are growing more accustomed to employees working remotely and recruiters are following suit, wrote Kevin Wheeler, president and founder of Global Learning Resources in a blog on ERE.net.
Job seekers should be ready to face the new tools of the trade such as remote interviews, Wheeler said.
Hiring managers may never meet face-to-face with a candidate, and once hired, the employee may work alone in some remote place with no face-to-face contact with any other employee. Others may work in small clusters located regionally, and others may choose to work this way on a part-time basis. The key will be flexibility in everything… As mobile phones get even more connected to the Internet and offer more capabilities, work can take place literally anywhere: in airplanes, cars, or trains, and at all times and places. The concept of work being something done at a specific place is ending.
