Remote Beginnings

Kick-start your remote job search with Remote Beginnings, a step-by-step course aimed to help you land that remote job you’ve been dreaming about.

Over the past 5 years, Remote Year has learned what it takes for people to transition into a location independent lifestyle. We are excited to share this knowledge and help more people experience the magic of working remotely while traveling and connecting with people all over the world. Remote Beginnings is Remote Year’s newest offering and is a hands on, guided process aimed to help kick-start your remote job search and support you as you make the leap into location independence.

About the Process

Created by Remote Year’s team of remote work & HR experts, Remote Beginnings will guide you through a step-by-step course, with 1on1 touch points, that will help you better define your job search, revamp your resume, perfect your interview abilities and set attainable goals, putting you on the path to landing that remote job you’ve been dreaming about.

Once you are feeling confident about what you are searching for and have a plan in place, the Remote Beginnings Team will work to keep you motivated, excited and hold you accountable all the way up to your RY program departure.

Finding a new job can be hard work and requires time and dedication! Our team will be there to guide, support and motivate you, but in the end you are the responsible for your success.

  • Motivation to join a Remote Year Program leaving in the next 4-12 months: Having a timeline is everything. We’ll require you to pick a program leaving in 4-12 months so we can work backwards and help you get ready.
