The application allows the Rural & Remote team to identify someone's remote job readiness and gives us the necessary information we need in order to start the job placement support process.
Depending on the interests, skills, and experience of the applicant, there are two types of training courses that we have at present. The Coding Academy trains and equips people to become Junior Full-Stack Developers. The Master of Remote Work Certificate is a 30 day course that equips people with the necessary skills to be an effective remote employee.
One of the many things critical to being an effective remote employee is experience working remotely. Very few employers hire remote employees that do not have remote work experience. Through our intern and apprentice program we help people gain necessary important remote work experience. These are paid position working remotely for different Community Partners.
When an individual is ready to pursue a remote job, the Rural & Remote team helps support them in the process. We help provide job availability research, resume coaching, and support throughout the job application process.
