Job Skills to Highlight for Work From Home Positions

When it comes to interviewing for a work from home position, there are a few things to consider that differ from interviewing for a position in the office. Across the board, employers will look to see if you have the relevant job skills and experience needed, but for remote positions, employers are also looking to make sure that you are disciplined, trustworthy, and productive on your own.

Here are the best job skills to highlight when you go for that work from home interview:

  • Excellent Time Management
  • Excellent Communication Skills
  • Self-starter/Motivated
  • Positive/Can-do Attitude
  • Entrepreneurial Spirit and Drive
  • Provide specific examples of the skills above to show you are productive and trust-worthy
  • Make sure to include these skills both on your resume and in the interview

Employers need to be able to confidently trust their employees to be at home and still get the job done. Since you and the employer will not be working in the same place, the employer needs to be sure of your ability to be productive in the comfort of your own home without becoming easily distracted. By highlighting the skills above and providing concrete examples of each one, you will be able to convey that you are a valuable and trustworthy candidate.
