Which Virtual Jobs Are in High Demand?


Working remotely has been gaining traction in the United States during the past few years. In fact, from 2005 to 2017, the number of people telecommuting increased by 159%, according to a study from FlexJobs. That trend has continued over the past few years as increasing numbers of workers seek the flexibility of being able to choose their work environments — and as increasing numbers of companies see the cost-saving capabilities of having at least part of their workforces operating off-site.

As COVID-19 has swept across the globe in 2020, many employees with suitable roles were given the option to continue on a remote-work basis. However, other workers out there may be looking for new jobs or may be interested in switching to virtual positions entirely. Figuring out which ones are authentic can be tough, but these virtual roles are all in high demand — and legitimate.
