Changing Your Career Path in Uncertain Times

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.
