To boost your chances of landing a remote job, make sure your resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile highlight skills employers are looking for.

Jessica Howingtown, career content manager at FlexJobs, says job applicants should highlight "being able to focus and work independently, comfort with technology and troubleshooting, time and task management, and communicating through email, phone and instant message."

In addition, set up accounts with platforms many remote companies use, such as Skype, Dropbox, Google Drive and Slack.

"The great thing is that these are all free and available to the public, so if you're not familiar with them yet," she says, "create accounts and start using them."
