Virtual Vocations is helping remote professionals take their careers to the next level with the launch of its new Remote Career Center.
According to Virtual Vocations CEO Laura Spawn, the launch of the Remote Career Center comes as part of a continued effort to bring valuable, constructive resources to jobseekers and professionals looking to prioritize flexibility and maximize productivity with remote work.
Founded in 2007 by CEO Laura Spawn and CEO Adam Stevenson, Virtual Vocations connects jobseekers with legitimate, hand-screened remote job openings as one of the web’s leading job boards for remote work.
This week, as part of the company’s sixth annual Remote Work Week celebration, Virtual Vocations is officially unveiling its new Remote Career Center, a collection of more than 40 expert resources designed to help jobseekers navigate their online job searches and put themselves on the path to success.
Among the free and premium resources available now to Virtual Vocations members as part of the new Remote Career Center are:
- Recorded coaching sessions to help both new and seasoned professionals successfully market themselves in today’s remote job market;
- Career guides designed to help jobseekers plan and optimize their remote job searches;
- Exclusive webinars for both jobseekers and current work from home professionals;
- Checklists, templates, and cheat sheets crafted to help jobseekers draft high-quality resumes, excel at remote interviews, and maximize their chances of landing the job; and
- Virtual Vocations’ full Telecommuting Handbook, a 50-page ebook filled with advice for work from home professionals, templates for requesting remote work arrangements, and much more.
The Remote Career Center also features downloadable, self-paced e-courses like the newly revamped “Optimizing Your Resume for Remote Work” course, which breaks down current best practices for resume writing in the digital workplace, and the freshly redesigned “Remote Job Search Strategies for Success” course, which covers the fundamentals of working from home, from how to identify job search scams to how to set up an ergonomic home office.
As I have mentioned many times int he past career content is an important part of any job board strategy. Virtual Vocations seems to be taking their content to a new level with this launch.
Content is one of the few ways to “make your own noise” from a marketing standpoint. It allows you to generate traffic on your own, keep people on your site (and get them to come back). Good content builds credibility in your business. Prospective job board entrepreneurs should realize this and be prepared to dive head first into content creation with blogs, ebooks and even courses if they make sense.
