🕵️♂️ The Global Tech Job Hunt 🕵️♀️
We get it—taking your tech skills to the international stage and working with global teams is tempting. However, navigating the international hiring process can feel like decoding a new programming language.
This edition explores the steps, stumbles, and strategies to smooth out your global job hunt. Consider this your handbook for entering the international scene, from interviews to onboarding. Keep reading.
How to Stand Out Remotely 💻
Let's break down the remote hiring process—a mix of aptitude and attitude.
👉 Sell Your Fit: Align your skills with the job listing to nail your application. Over 60% of successful job applicants land positions by deeply researching and tailoring their applications to the company.
👉 Know Your Role: Decode job listings. Use the highlighted skills in your resume, cover letter, and interviews.
👉 Ace the Video Interview: Avoid the last-minute scramble. Dress sharp, set a professional scene, and rehearse on popular platforms like Zoom or Google Meet. And given that nearly 80% of U.S. tech firms hold at least three rounds of interviews, you'll likely find yourself on screen more than once.
👉 Express Appreciation: A prompt thank-you note post-interview isn't just polite—it reinforces your eagerness and competence.
Every company has its unique rhythm: some dash with swift offers while others waltz through multiple rounds. Your preparation and adaptability make you a memorable candidate.
Onboarding: Navigating New Terrains 🌊
Starting a new remote role presents unique challenges. The initial days can feel like solving a puzzle without the full picture.
How can you connect with the company culture and grasp unspoken nuances through a screen?

Effective onboarding involves structured training, clear expectations, and proactive communication. A tip from Aiden: Establish clear work hours for structure; avoid blurring the lines between work and relaxation.
