According to Virtual Vocations CEO Laura Spawn, the company’s 2023 event aims to celebrate and focus on all aspects of the remote job search journey.
“Over time, the job market’s landscape has transformed, urging us all to adopt a more encompassing view of our career paths. For this year’s National Work & Family Month event, we emphasize ‘navigating your job search journey from start to finish,'” said Spawn. She continued, “It’s about understanding each step, each challenge, and every triumph that leads you to the right role. We offer the tools, insights, and perspective needed for this voyage. As we traverse this route, let’s remember it’s more than just a job hunt—it’s about creating a story of perseverance, growth, and success.”
This week, Virtual Vocations’ certified career coaches and remote content specialists will explore the nuances of the remote job search process with a free four-part webinar series for the first 500 attendees to register.
Presented by Virtual Vocations’ Career Services Division Manager Holly Leyva, resume writer and career coach Paige Judnich, and Senior Job Data Content Producer Kimberly Back, the “From Search to Success: Navigating Your Journey from Start to Finish” coaching series will explore the following topics:
- “Actionable Steps for a Successful Remote Job Search”;

Virtual Vocations also asks working adults, whether or not they currently work remotely, to share their insights on navigating their job searches for its annual National Work and Family Month survey. For the 2023 survey, the company asks workers, “What would make your remote job search more successful?”
