By Alex Wilson-Campbell, Founder, Remote Work Life

And On Today’s Episode … 

Another one from the pre-covid archive:
Are you trying to figure out what separates the good remote companies from the not so good? Or, are you wondering what’s it’s like to work for a fully remote business. Maybe you’re wondering which opportunities suit you and you’re not having success with your applications. 

Remote Hero Darcy tells us how she made her dreams -of travelling while working – come true by positioning herself to transition into a remote career path. HINT: she didn’t use a job board. And she reveals some of the crucial tools – many remote companies use – that could help you stand out when applying for a remote position.

About the Host

After 9 years working remotely, I started to set up and record conversations with CEOs of leading remote companies to understand their culture, how they hire and develop their teams.

> 50 high-level conversations later..

… I realized that the recordings can help you to understand how to navigate your career so I created the Remote Work Life Podcast to share what I learned.

When combined with >10 years of hiring and coaching (1000s of sales, marketing, engineering and strategy pros to secure new jobs) I’m positioned to help you if you’re feeling stuck or isolated.

Help me on my mission: to change underrepresentation in tech

I’m concerned about underrepresentation in the tech sector. For example, women who are woefully underrepresented makeup only 23% of the UK workforce.  Only 5% of leadership roles are held by women.  

The podcast will provide a medium to fight underrepresentation and help businesses build a diverse workforce by leveraging the growing remote work life pool of tech and marketing experts…read more about the mission 

I want to contribute to solving the problem of underrepresentation in tech by 1) helping companies to build a diverse and experienced engineering and marketing team and 2) increasing awareness of the issue.  This is something that I cannot do alone and I’d appreciate your support by joining my employer partner program; I’d then assist in promoting your dedication to fighting this important cause.
