June 2022 Remote Jobs Report

For the third month in a row, the U.S. jobs market is trending toward a four-day work week among total nonfarm payroll.


Virtual Vocations’ June 2022 Remote Jobs Report is an analysis of the state of hiring in the U.S., including the nationwide availability of fully remote jobs. We examined the latest in remote work statistics and trends, as well as U.S. employment data from the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) from May 2022, to determine the month’s best-of lists for remote work employers, states, and industries offering work from home, fully virtual, telecommute, and home-based jobs.

May 2022 Remote Hiring Summary

“Since February 2022, when we updated our job posting policy to require that all remote job postings be fully remote and require no field travel, May was our second-highest month for total remote jobs added to the Virtual Vocations database.”

In addition to noting the continued availability of fully remote jobs, Virtual Vocations CEO Laura Spawn also acknowledged trends we’ve witnessed during the first half of the year. “We’ve observed that workers are still prioritizing their values during their job searches. Jobseekers don’t just want any job; they want a good job with flexible options.

“Without a doubt, LinkedIn is the go-to-place for sourcing golden-rip talent. The problem? It’s the job seeker’s market in 2022.”

Passport-Photo.Online, the maker of a biometric photo booth app, polled approximately 1,000 workers in the U.S. to ask them about the worst mistakes employers make when hiring on LinkedIn. The survey results provide valuable insight into workers’ opinions about potential employers’ online recruitment tactics. For example, 64% of U.S. professionals can tolerate no more than one or two follow-up messages from recruiters on LinkedIn. Below, we have provided additional key findings from this LinkedIn recruitment survey.

BLS Jobs Report Data for May 2022

“Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 390,000 in May, and the unemployment rate remained at 3.6 percent,” according to the BLS. This is the third consecutive month with a 3.6% unemployment rate as well as the same number of unemployed at 6.0 million. These numbers depict U.S. unemployment in a state practically the same as it was before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. Prior to the pandemic, in February 2020, U.S. unemployment was 3.5% with approximately 5.7 million unemployed.

For the third month in a row, the U.S. job market is trending toward a four-day work week among total nonfarm payroll. The average work week is now comprised of 34.6 hours, according to BLS data, which could reflect American workers’ desire for a four-day work week, especially among professionals who want home-based jobs.

In a Virtual Vocations survey from March, we found that 77.97% of workers prefer a four-day work week. Most of these workers also want the four-day work week to be conducted within four eight-hour shifts. Survey respondents reported they can be just as productive working 32 hours per week from home as opposed to working a traditional 40-hour per week schedule.

Within its monthly jobs report, the BLS also published revisions of reported total jobs numbers. We noted two key changes among monthly jobs data calculated for 2022. Adjustments have been made to BLS jobs totals for March and April of this year. Updated figures reduce the total jobs added over this period by 22,000 jobs: -30,000 for March and +8,000 for April.

Virtual Vocations’ May 2022 Remote Jobs Report is an analysis of the state of hiring in the U.S., including the nationwide availability of fully remote jobs. We examined the latest in remote work statistics and trends, as well as U.S. employment data from the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) from April 2022, to determine the month’s best-of lists for remote work employers, states, and industries filling work-at-home, virtual, and telecommuting jobs.

April 2022 Remote Hiring Summary

Throughout April, more than 20,000 human-screened fully remote postings were added to the Virtual Vocations job board—a 9.77% increase in remote hiring from March.”

Remote Work Report Spotlight

“The ability to work in a remote or distributed setting did more than decentralize workers from singular locations. In many cases, it empowered employees to consider an entirely new way of working.”

Oyster, a global HR software provider, conducted a survey to better understand the evolution of workplace priorities since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. In “The Employee Expectations Report 2022,” Oyster details their findings, which point to major shifts in worker expectations. Employees are not only more creative, productive, and successful but also willing to leave jobs and organizations with less than desirable wages, benefits, and conditions.

When it comes to defining these shifts in employee expectations, Oyster looks beyond the “Great Resignation” of 2021 and instead to the “Great Revelation” of 2022. During the COVID-19 pandemic, more employees than ever before got a taste of the flexibility and autonomy facilitated by remote work, and they want more. According to Oyster’s report, “What our research points towards is that knowledge workers are realizing that work can and should be different. Remote and distributed working has unshackled employees from the office and eliminated the drudgery of the daily commute.”

Below, we’ve included a couple of additional key stats from Oyster’s report:

81% of respondents said remote work is more important since the start of the pandemic.

81%

44% of respondents said the ability to work remotely is one of the top three factors they look for in an ideal employer.

BLS Jobs Report Data for April 2022

“Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 428,000 in April, and the unemployment rate was unchanged at 3.6 percent,” according to the BLS. The number of U.S. workers who teleworked specifically as a result of the pandemic decreased 2.0 percentage points to 10.0% in March.

Gains are also evident in month-to-month and annual wage increases. According to BLS data, “Average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls rose by 10 cents, or 0.3 percent, to $31.85 in April. Over the past 12 months, average hourly earnings have increased by 5.5 percent.”

The BLS also published revisions of jobs numbers from February and March. New data analysis resulted in jobs numbers for those months being revised down by -39,000 jobs: -36,000 from February and -3,000 from March.

From bread-winning to care-giving and household management, the COVID-19 pandemic disproportionately affected working women, many of whom left their jobs to provide in-home care and education to their children. Will these difficult choices spell long-term consequences for women’s careers?

Deloitte conducted a global survey of nearly 400 working women in nine countries to learn more about how they have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, including how their day-to-day lives have changed as well as whether these changes also altered their career progression.

Nearly 82% of women said their lives were negatively impacted by the pandemic.

82%

The majority of women are also now responsible for a larger share of their household’s chores while also serving as primary caregivers, and as many as one-third adopted larger workloads.

Nearly 70% of women who experienced negative impacts are concerned for their career growth and worried that it may be limited as a result of the pandemic.

70%

A fully remote job can be a solution for working women who need more flexibility on both personal and professional levels. Our free coaching session on Making Time to Job Search is a great place to begin formulating successful remote job search strategies without acquiring burnout.

BLS Jobs Report Data for March 2022

In 2022, approximately 1.16 million jobs have been added to the U.S. economy, with the unemployment rate nearly returned to its pre-pandemic level.


Virtual Vocations’ March 2022 Remote Jobs Report is an analysis of the state of hiring in the U.S., including the nationwide availability of remote jobs. We examined the latest in remote work statistics and trends, as well as U.S. employment data from the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) from February 2022, to determine the month’s best-of lists for remote work employers, states, and industries filling work-at-home, virtual, and telecommuting jobs.

February 2022 Remote Hiring Summary

February 2022 marked the first month of Virtual Vocations’ transition to a fully virtual job board. This transition was inspired by feedback from our jobseekers who wanted to see more remote job postings requiring no field-travel. According to Virtual Vocations CEO and co-founder Laura Spawn,

“February 2022 was our first full month of posting only 100% remote jobs to our job board. While we anticipated a decline in the overall number of available jobs due to our new, strict quality standards, we were pleased to be able to share more than 16,000 new, fully remote job postings with remote jobseekers and connect them with more than 3,200 companies filling 100% virtual roles with no travel required.”

BLS Jobs Report Data for February 2022

“Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 678,000 in February, and the unemployment rate edged down to 3.8 percent,” according to the BLS, which means the unemployment rate has nearly returned to its pre-pandemic level of 3.5%. The number of U.S. workers who teleworked specifically as a result of the pandemic decreased 2.4 percentage points to 13.0% in February. This shift can be credited to a decline in the number of new cases from the Omicron wave of COVID-19 and some workers returning to on-site duties amid an increased rollout of hybrid work models.

To close out the year, Virtual Vocations’ team and our Employer Partners added more than 35,000 remote job openings to our job board.

Laura Spawn, Virtual Vocations CEO and co-founder, is looking forward to the year ahead, saying:

The 2022 outlook for remote work is a good one. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Virtual Vocations set a new company record for total remote jobs screened and added to our database during a single year. Nearly 600,000 remote job postings were added to our job board in 2021. This year, we’re focused on increasing access to 100% remote, fully virtual job postings.”

Throughout 2022, Virtual Vocations will continue our quality over quantity commitment to screening remote jobs. This quality assurance plan includes the following tenets:

  • Reducing the number of staffing agency job postings to only those from our valued and vetted Employer Partner staffing agencies.
  • Prioritizing 100% remote jobs across all categories.
  • Continuing to screen remote job postings to eliminate commission-only offers, unpaid internships, start-your-own business opportunities, and other unscrupulous offers.
