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.
