CEO’s Statement on Permanent Remote Jobs and Hybrid Work
“Data from Q1 shows that employers are neither keen to train inexperienced workers nor pay top-level salaries to professionals with decades of experience under their belts. Right now, companies want experienced workers who not only know how to do their jobs but also would be willing to stay in their remote roles for the next five to 10 years.
This also tracks with the widespread availability of full-time, permanent jobs offered by Employer Partners during Q1 of 2022. During January, February, and March an average of 78.80% of all Employer Partner job postings were full-time, permanent positions.”
—Laura Spawn, Virtual Vocations CEO & Co-Founder
