⭐️ Stand out in your remote tech job search: part 2

Want companies rushing to hire you? The first thing to do is...

  1. Add the “magic moment” to your portfolio

  2. Create a “remote work readiness” story

  3. Show metrics aligned to business goals

Today, I’m sharing 3 more tips to have companies rush to hire you.

1. Share what you learn

4 months after learning Product Management, Melvina landed a job.


She did something that impressed employers who checked out her profile:

She posted her Product Management learning journey on LinkedIn.

For 100 days in a row.

Then she sent cold outreach messages - even if she felt like she wasn’t ready.

Not everyone gave her a job interview…

(Some people just gave feedback so she could improve.)

But eventually, she succeeded.

Not only that - she also got referrals and resources she never would’ve had access to, if she hadn’t taken the leap.

Psst: I share my favourite tools to make content creation easier at the end of this email.

2. Adapt to change

Tech moves fast.

Something you learned on YouTube months ago might not be up-to-date anymore.

And watching videos isn’t the same as applying what you learn in a project, anyway.

But how do you keep up to date so you can be competitive in the tech job search?

  1. Follow tech influencers for the latest news

  2. Subscribe to tech newsletters

  3. Join tech communities (like EntryLevel’s)

3. Stack your skills

Learning never stops.

That was Chinonyelum’s motto - and why he took more than 6 tech courses with EntryLevel.

“It paid off because it helped me speak the language of tech.”

Knowledge is never wasted - if you learn as much as you can, you’ll stand out from others who specialized only in one role. Plus, you’ll have a more well-rounded perspective.

Here’s what I recommend for you if you’re a beginner:

  1. Focus on one skill you want to be proficient at (like data analysis or UX design)

  2. After you’ve taken a course on that skill (and done 1-2 projects), identify which other skills would help you improve

  3. Take more courses on those other skills and try more projects

Here’s an example of what I did:

  1. Took a marketing course (I work in marketing)

  2. Realized I needed to analyze lots of marketing data, but I didn’t know data analysis

  3. Took a data analysis course (Excel, Tableau, and SQL)

  4. Wanted to learn more about the business, so took Product Management and UX Design
