Tailor Your Résumé for Remote Jobs 

Be clear that you’re intentionally looking for remote work in your summary/personal statement. Use terms like “location independent” as an alternative to giving your address. Highlight any skills you have that would be relevant for a remote job. If you have any previous remote work experience, don’t forget to add it in your CV!
