In 2020, the job market transitioned from professionals in brick-and-mortar offices to the remote work platform, which has affected how prospective hires look for work. This year met the economy and business with a number of challenges many of them related to COVID-19 and the ensuing pandemic.
However, on the job front, the pandemic forced many organizations to adopt a remote platform because stay-at-home-orders mandated everyone work from home. Some experts expect that this remote work platform will change work with at least 16 percent of American workers expected to work remotely long after the pandemic has passed.
For job hunters, this might require being flexible in the hunt for work. While remote work was always a part of the landscape, these types of positions are increasingly becoming available with industries such as real estate and rentals, scientific and technical services, administrative support, and arts, entertainment, and recreation seeing more productivity and taking advantage of the platform.
Moreover, the remote platform has made it possible to work for an organization that is halfway around the world. Those seeking employment should consider looking at organizations and industries outside of the region that benefits from their talent.
Outside of his varied professional pursuits, Joe Arrigo enjoys reading and weightlifting, working out four times per week. He also reads upward of 50 books per year and enjoys ping pong, darts, and partaking in political discussion.
