Remote Enabling Software

Remote Work & Recruiting

“The obvious ingredient at the centre of every remote platform is software (“pandemic proof software”). Software that allows users to action physical world activities and interaction from a distance…”

A good example of this type of software can be found with the use of apps such as the unsuspecting DropBox

With its less known features, besides allowing the remote sharing and collaborative proofing of documents and images, Dropbox (Watch This Space) may now be venturing the e-commerce arena for apps that allow users the capability of selling both digital and physical products via its platform ( see advanced access ).

Remote Recruiting

Now, where it comes to remote collaboration and recruiting, this can occur in a number of ways, from simply reaching out to an acquainted individual or audience on a social media platform, to submitting an ad with an online recruiting app.

So, where it comes to finding candidates to work with, as well as be better prepared for advertising with the likes of Google Ads, Bing (Microsoft) Ads, or any of the social media advertising platforms, such as LinkedIn, having some form of online profile or website can be of great benefit.

Now, If you DO NOT manage your own website, then you may need to rely on social media, or stick to traditional advertising, in say, an industry magazine or local newspaper. But hey, you’re here to learn about recruiting remotely, so you might also want to consider using a recruitment agency that  provides services aligned with the internet and digital media.

If you do manage your own website, then at least you will have control of branding and customisation, plus a consistent place for sending an audience to view your promoted campaigns and other relevant content you may have on your website.
