Seeking advice on landing a remote position

Hey guys, I’ve been working on my front end skills for a while now and I’m a crossroads wondering if I’m skilled enough to land a remote position as a front end dev or should I continue to focus on building my skills before applying.

Here’s my portfolio for reference:

Any pointers as to what I’m missing or any help in general would be much appreciated.

Thank you & Regards

You need to make sure the projects you feature on your site do not have any bugs. When I try to use the Varna Calculator, it says “Please select your location from the dropdown menu.” However, there is no dropdown menu and instead just has a textbox.

Hi Randell,

Thank you for your feedback. As for the Varna Calculator, it has an auto suggested dropdown when you enter your location. For example, if you type ‘Dallas’, the dropdown will appear with locations from Google Maps.

Do you have any suggestions on how to make this clear to users from the get go?

I have very much free space on the left side of the screen maybe try to make your website more responsive, and also try to highlight your name by increasing the fontsize in the navigator and the last thing is also to show the Page 1 of 1 on the bottom right oft the web page and not on the bottow left

Hi Michael,

I would not show a Page 1 of 1 on your site. You only have one page and even if you had more than one page, what use is this information to the user visiting your site?

I’m not sure if you’re still looking for a remote job, but it’s a good idea to remember to tweak your resume and interview style based on the fact that it’s a remote job. It’s really easy to just use the same resume you use for your regular job search, but that’s a recipe for never getting an offer letter. Really emphasize your communication skills and remember that there’s more than one way to find a remote job than just job boards.

I wrote a blog post that answers your question directly, but I’m not allowed to post links yet haha :slight_smile:
