COVID-19 has changed what work looks like across the country. According to Global Workplace Analytics, about 56% of the U.S. workforce holds a job that could partially be accomplished with remote work. However, only 3.6% of the workforce works at home half the time or more. They go on to estimate that 25 – 30% of the workforce will work from home on a multiple-days-a-week basis by the end of 2021.
That’s a huge change for both employers and employees. However, for those looking to change their career path, these uncertain times present an unprecedented opportunity. Jobs that individuals couldn’t accept because they required a move are now open to anyone in the country.
