In this episode Jordan Carroll talks about growing up in the Bay Area of Northern California, desiring to travel, and starting to work remotely in various capacities. He opens up about how his location independence saved his life and how travel helped him emerge from struggles with substance abuse, suicidal thoughts and other mental health challenges. He then shares how he landed his dream job with his dream company through entirely unconventional strategies. He explains how he subsequently identified a need in the market for remote job coaching, started his own business and became “The Remote Job Coach”. He breaks down the biggest challenges, obstacles and mistakes that remote job seekers are making today, and explains why traditional methods of job searching are not effective today. He then goes on to share some advanced LinkedIn strategies, the most effective techniques for virtual networking, his 3-Step non-traditional approach for landing a remote job interview, and his top tips for crushing the interview. Jordan then talks about his “Road to Remote” Facebook group, where to access his free content on finding remote jobs, and how his “Remote Job Club” and coaching services work.
