Enjoyed reading your story, Aya. Could relate to the part where you mentioned asking a lot of questions. During my initial days, I used to ask a ton of questions as well and had most of them clarified at the end of the meetings. This helped me better understand how things work in the company.
Remote Work Experience
I work as a freelance writer and digital marketer. Have been doing this remotely for 2 years now.
Thank you, Cathy! I would probably still be clueless if I stayed quiet every time I didn't understand something. I am glad it worked out for you, and I encourage everyone to get out of their comfort zone and ask questions.
There's an air of mystery about Aya 😮. They haven't filled their profile yet.
Thanks, Aya. Cheers!
Congratulations! Starting your career directly in a remote role is quite an achievement and probably also talks a lot about the kind of future we are going to see 😃
Based on your article where you mention that you networked, asked many questions, reached out for help, etc. sort of makes you the ideal new hire :). Those are exactly the things that we advise companies to promote among their "newbies". So great going!
Here's an entire remote work guide that I had written and the section that I am referring to: Onboarding.
Once again, congrats to you and looking forward to hearing a lot more from you in this community as you continue to grow in your journey!
Yes, at Flexiple our tech team is remote. Further, we consistently work with freelancers from our network who are located across timezones. It is an interesting dynamic that poses challenges but also enforces discipline like nothing else I have experiened before.
Thank you very much, Karthik for your kind words and for sharing your remote work guide with me!
