You are invited to join OD Live with Ade Olowojoba on Remote Work: Where are the Opportunities?
The COVID-19 uncertainties has caused businesses to cut hundreds and thousands of employees, increasing global unemployment. We are at a risk. Remote work is therefore, a tempting solution not only during this pandemic but also in the long run. However, finding a remote job comes with its challenges. You have to demonstrate that you are the perfect applicant and that you can work exceptionally well remotely.
Ade Olowojoba will be speaking on making the shift to working remotely; searching and securing the remote job for you; positioning yourself to sell your skills and connect with the companies that are hiring remote workers.
The #ODLive series is part of our efforts to empower our users with the right knowledge and tips they need to grow and succeed in their businesses, projects, and applications for global opportunities.
