Are you a university student or recent graduate unsure, confused or lost about how to navigate a digital workplace?

Would you like to land a junior remote job or digitally upskill yourself?

Join the RemoteGRAD course to follow a step-by-step guide on how to do this.

Welcome,
I'm Omamerhi.

Following my year abroad in 2017-18 in Spain and Ecuador, I always wanted the ability to travel and work remotely, whether I wanted to stay in London or go abroad, I simply wanted the option to CHOOSE.

After working remotely teaching English to Chinese students at the age of 19, my mindset was completely shifted by the world of remote work. I truly experienced the power of the Internet to transfer talent, knowledge and value across the globe. Since then, I have created projects remotely and successfully completed Le Wagon coding bootcamp and now do freelance web design and development.

Having studied in the UK, China and Ecuador, completed the Landmark Forum, and attended the Vipassana 10 day silent meditation retreat; I have a unique, holistic, evolving view of the world and just how powerful we are as individuals to create opportunities for ourselves and even moreso with the Internet.

I created RemoteGRAD in March 2019 because it is everything I wanted as a university student and now recent graduate.

Now I want to share what I have learnt and continue to learn to more university students and recent graduates who may not want to pursue the traditional corporate trajectory, instead opting for a career which is fluid, adaptive and aligned with themselves and their vision for the future.

Frankly, I love shuffling around RemoteGrad looking for new remote opportunities. It’s a great place, the website interface is really pleasant and I really see the growth potential in it.

I found RemoteGRAD really useful being a languages graduate. There are lots of jobs that you can apply for at the comfort of your home and it has really opened my eyes to just how diverse the job market is. Without RemoteGRAD I would have been limiting myself during this lockdown period, but now I know that remote working is not just something I see a select few do, but graduates like me can also do.

RemoteGRAD succeeds in centralizing lots of resources and opportunities for us graduates in the job hunting process. Both in terms of job offerings in very interesting companies/areas, and valuable guidance ranging from how to enhance our Resume, to tips on remote work (Which could not be more valuable given today's structural challenges).

Omamerhi has been a massive help in enhancing my understanding of remote work. The opportunities posted in the FB group and on the website are regularly updated and the Remote Grad team's willingness to walk you through the application process is a service like no other.
Thanks guys!

I've never come across a document like that and now I realise how much I needed it. Thank you so much for making it!

I genuinely think it’s great and it could help a lot of students to uncover what they really want to do rather than just following the crowd, which can often be the case at university.

Thank you for organizing the amazing group so that I can know people who are also interested in this area and know a lot of remote job opportunities.

I came across the platform via a YouTube video and was impressed that there is a specific group to help graduates looking for remote jobs as it not so a very common route of employment for grads.

Rewaz ESMAEEL
KINGS COLLEGE London

RemoteGRAD is a great platform to look for remote jobs. There are many employment agency websites such as reed and indeed.

But, what makes RemoteGRAD great is that it specifies in only remote jobs which is a great opportunity for most of the developers.

Before going to my internship interview I did some practise interview calls with her and they helped me a lot."
