Hybrid Jobs Grew 30% or More in These 8 Careers: FlexJobs Reports

Hybrid work is quickly becoming the future of work, with 70 percent of companies planning to adopt the hybrid model in the near future. To help job seekers identify which careers are promising prospects for hybrid jobs, FlexJobs analyzed more than 50 career categories in its database to determine eight career categories that have recently grown more than 30 percent. This growth was determined by comparing the number of hybrid jobs posted in quarter one 2021 to quarter two 2021. FlexJobs’ career coaching team has also provided a list of detailed questions for job seekers to ask when interviewing for hybrid jobs to help them better assess how prospective companies are approaching their hybrid work models.

“According to one of FlexJobs’ recent surveys, nearly 60 percent said they would quit if they weren’t allowed to continue working remotely in some capacity in their current job,” said Sara Sutton, founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “The pandemic has taught both companies and workers that being physically at the office full-time is simply not necessary to produce great results, so I hope that we will continue to see the smart adoption of the hybrid workplace by companies across all industries,” Sutton concluded.
