There has been a rise in the number of remote jobs that do not require a college diploma.
In May, little under 4% of all job postings in the United States were for remote jobs that didn't require a college diploma. According to LinkedIn data, this proportion is up from 0.6 percent of all roles for the same period previous year.
Customer service representative, salesperson, as well as administrative and data entry tasks, are among the most preferred roles among applicants.
Since the start of the coronavirus epidemic, there has been a general increase in the availability of remote roles.
According to the statistics, advertisements for college-degree-required jobs increased in the United States from 2% last year to 7% in May.
Remote job postings, or those with keywords like "work from home," now account for 14% of all job postings.
People can now easily adjust to working remotely thanks to the rise of technologies like Zoom and Slack.
Employers are also becoming more accepting of the fact that people can work remotely and that many people demand more flexibility in their jobs.
Following the epidemic, 73 percent of employees said they preferred flexible remote choices, according to a Microsoft poll from March. Some 40% of those polled said they were considering changing jobs, and 46% said they planned to relocate now that remote work was an option - admittedly, many of these respondents have a college diploma.
While some remote employment may return to in-person positions, some believe that the shift to remote will be permanent for many.
"As businesses contemplate their future workplace regulations, the changes enacted will affect workers at all levels, offering more people greater flexibility than they have ever had."
