Prepare for Remote Job Interviews

With the rise in contract and freelance work, flexible job locations and hours will expand in 2010, said career expert Kevin Wheeler.

Job seekers should be ready to face the new tools of the trade such as remote interviews, president and founder of Global Learning Resources.

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.
