15 companies that will let you work from home and are hiring now—some roles pay over $100K

Originally Published CNBC Published Tue, Nov 8 2022 - 


Companies are scaling back their remote offerings even though jobs that allow you to work from home — or from anywhere in the world — continue to be hot commodities amongst the workforce.

Remote jobs fell to 14% of all active listings on LinkedIn in September, down from a peak of 20% in February, according to a new report from the platform. Yet demand for flexible work options continues to climb: In September, remote job postings drew in 52% of applications on LinkedIn, compared to 50% of applications in February.

So, where are all the jobs with this coveted flexibility? 

To help people find the best remote opportunities, FlexJobs, a membership service for jobseekers, identified the 15 companies with the most remote job openings, including full-time and part-time opportunities, this fall. FlexJobs looked at over 35,000 jobs posted on the site’s database between August and October 2022 to compile their list.

Here are the top 15 companies hiring for remote jobs right now, according to FlexJobs:

  1. CVS Health
  2. UnitedHealth Group
  3. Affirm
  4. Thermo Fisher Scientific
  5. Kraken
  6. Toast, Inc.
  7. Lincoln Financial Group
  8. Twilio
  9. DoorDash
  10. HubSpot
  11. BCD Travel
  12. GitHub
  13. Citizens Bank
  14. Pearson
  15. Alight Solutions

While not all of the companies listed include pay ranges in their job postings, some employers, including CVS Health, UnitedHealth Group and HubSpot, provide estimated salaries with their advertised positions — and several of the available remote jobs offer competitive salaries of $100,000 or higher. 

A remote account executive on HubSpot’s sales team, for example, can expect to earn between $134,000 and $144,000, while a remote medical director at Aetna, a CVS Health company, earns between $141,500 and $302,500 per year. A remote mergers and acquisitions analyst at UnitedHealth Group working out of New York, on the other hand, can expect to earn $72,800 to $129,900 per year. 

In spite of fewer remote job openings, Jennifer Shappley, LinkedIn’s vice president of global talent acquisition, expects flexibility to remain a top priority for workers. 

“Even facing an uncertain future, people still highly value two areas of work life that have gotten a lot of attention since the start of the pandemic: work-life balance, and flexible-work arrangements – including remote work,” Shappley said in LinkedIn’s report, adding that she expects the two attributes to be “top talent drivers” for the next couple of years. 

In a competitive remote job market, your visibility as a candidate could be the key to a successful job search, Toni Frana, a career services manager at FlexJobs, tells CNBC Make It. “Positioning yourself as an expert in your area, being active on social platforms and engaging with others may be the differentiator between you and other candidates,” she says.

Frana also stresses the importance of networking, which can also help you stand out in a tight job market. Professional, virtual communities on platforms like Slack, Reddit, Discord and LinkedIn, for example, offer ample opportunities to meet people who work at remote companies you’re interested in or make personal connections.

As in the traditional job market, “referrals tend to get much more traction than a cold application” for remote jobs, Frana adds. “It’s important not to overlook this part of the process!”

Truckers, plumbers, pipefitters seek young applicants for high-paying jobs

Originally published - The Washington Times

Plumbers, truckers and pipefitters are offering hiring and signing bonuses — and promoting their six-figure incomes — to entice high school graduates willing to do dirty jobs, but young people keep turning up their noses to blue-collar work.

Even the prospect of a $1,000-a-week starting salary that could double in six years isn’t persuading young people to get into plumbing, says Chris Robertson, who has worked as a plumber for 24 years in Rockville, Maryland.

“It requires you to work hard, and I think a good part of the younger generation wants to be rich without putting in the effort,” said Mr. Robertson, owner of Robertson Plumbing Services. “And I think that’s part of the problem. Why do I want to dig with a shovel when I can sit at home, post videos and become YouTube famous?”

He said he’s been looking for an assistant since his employee of four years quit in February to work for a bigger company that offered a signing bonus. And the job vacancy is forcing him to turn down jobs, he added.

“Every single plumber I know is busy and can use extra help,” he said.

These are the 10 fastest-growing entry-level jobs

by Michelle Fox@MFOXCNBC Originally published on

 It’s a good job market for the class of 2022. Yet some industries and jobs are hotter than others.

While you don’t have to change your career path, knowing where opportunities lie may help you land the right job for you.

“You always want to go to areas where there is scarcity and there is demand,” said Monica Lewis, senior director of product management at LinkedIn.

Entry-level sales and recruiting roles have gained significant steam since 2020, according to LinkedIn data.

The top job, sales development representative, has a salary rate of $35,000-$60,000, according to LinkedIn. Desired skills include cold-calling, lead generation and sales prospecting.

The No. 2 position, business development representative, brings in a salary between $31,200 and $60,000. Candidates should have software as a service (SaaS) and customer relationship management skills.

It also helps to know what industries are growing fast. Different sectors, including health care, hospitality and recruiting, are all looking for entry-level workers, LinkedIn found.

Finding a job

Not knowing where to start is holding many Gen Z job seekers back, Lewis said.

Begin by setting time aside to make a plan.

“Reflect on what I like, what I don’t know,” she said. “What summer jobs I’ve done.

“What do I want and how does that translate into potential job opportunities?”

Creating a LinkedIn profile, building a network and engaging on the platform can also help you start finding job opportunities.

Check out career websites for postings, as well. When searching for jobs, set up an alert so you can be notified as soon as roles are posted.

This is the best job market for new college grads this century, says Purdue University president

Reaching out to people you know and building your network is also key.

“It’s not just about applying for the job,” Lewis said.

“Every job you apply for, talk to someone,” she added. “It’s about getting insight or getting a foot in the door.”

LinkedIn Reports Most In-Demand Jobs Across All Industries

Originally published by   on Search Engine Journal 

A report from LinkedIn shows demand for software engineers, RNs, and salespeople are high, while need for service professionals continues to grow.

In the aftermath of COVID-19 and the “great reshuffle,” there have been many changes in the workforce.

In a new report, LinkedIn used data from its site to identify the fastest-growing and most in-demand jobs right now.

Service Industry Seeing Highest Growth

As companies began reopening their doors to in-person business in the last months of 2021, the demand for service professionals of all types has been on the rise.

Hospitality was particularly hard hit by the pandemic. According to the American Hotel and Lodging Association’s State of the Hotel Industry 2021 report, it lost 670,000 operations jobs and almost 4 million hospitality jobs in 2020.

As the industry works to rebound, the demand for housekeepers (which also includes home and hospital cleaning professionals) more than tripled from quarter three (July – September) to quarter four (October – December) in 2021.

The top five jobs with the fastest-growing demand over this period according to job posts were:

  • Housekeeper – 320% growth
  • Food specialist – 260% growth
  • Pharmacy specialist – 250% growth
  • Tax consultant – 240% growth
  • Python developer – 230% growth

Most In-demand Jobs Overall Remain Consistent

Changes in the workforce have left many industries facing labor shortages, but the jobs in the highest demand prior to COVID still rank highly.

The jobs with the most overall demand in the fourth quarter of 2021, according to LinkedIn posts were:

  • Software engineer
  • JavaScript developer
  • Salesperson
  • Registered nurse
  • Java Software Engineer

Of these, only nursing was new to the list during the pandemic.

Of the top 10, the only job that entered the list in quarter four was driver, which came in at ninth most in-demand. As the fourth quarter is the holiday season, shopping and e-commerce likely contributed to the heightened demand for drivers.

High Quit Rates Lead To Changing Worker Priorities

The number of workers voluntarily leaving their jobs remained elevated after reaching an all-time high of 4.51 million in November 2021, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

This was led by people-facing industries like accommodation, retail, and food service, which all experience high turnover under ordinary circumstances.

As labor shortages give more bargaining power to workers, they have new priorities when choosing an employer.

According to a 2021 LinkedIn survey— flexible work arrangements, inclusive workplaces, and work-life balance have all become increasingly more important to job candidates.

Employers Rethinking How They Attract Candidates

With no end in sight for the labor crunch, and burnout at an all-time high, many companies are reconsidering their hiring processes, with streamlined application and interview processes.

Some companies are increasing their compensation in bids to retain and attract top talent, with 44% planning to offer raises of more than 3%, according to Payscale’s 2022 Compensation Best Practices Report.

However, with inflation nearing 8%, this is not enough to offset the rising cost of living and may leave some employees dissatisfied.

10 skills you need to land a top job in 2022, according to Glassdoor

Originally Published Fri, Mar 11 20229:46 AM EST

More companies are eliminating degree requirements in their job postings. Between 2017 and 2019, employers reduced the degree requirements for 46% of middle-skill positions and 31% of high-skill positions, according to recent research from Harvard Business Review and Emsi Burning Glass, a labor market data firm. 

Instead, companies are adding more detailed soft-skills requirements in their job postings and testing hard skills through certifications, evaluations and other methods. The trend begs the question: “What skills do you need to thrive in today’s workplace?”

To determine the most essential skills people need to land a top job in today’s workplace, Glassdoor looked at the skill requirements that appear the most among postings for the site’s “top 50 Best Jobs.” This list ranks jobs based on earning potential, overall job satisfaction rating and the number of job openings on Glassdoor. 

Tech jobs dominate the list, with enterprise architect, full stack engineer and data scientist claiming the top three spots. Picking up some of the skills outlined in Glassdoor’s report can help you adapt better to fast-changing job requirements and become eligible for higher-paying roles.

Here are the most in-demand technical skills:

  • Machine learning: understanding computer systems and algorithms that are able to learn and adapt automatically to user experiences and perform complex tasks

  • Distributed computing: linking together multiple computer systems over a shared network so they can collaborate, communicate and work together

  • Time series analysis: analyze a data sequence indexed in time order to extract statistics and other data characteristics

  • Statistical modeling: building a mathematical model that reflects statistical assumptions generated from sample data

  • Usability testing: evaluating a product or service by testing it out with users

Here are the most in-demand non-technical skills: 

  • Product management: guiding each step of a product’s lifecycle from development and planning to execution and pricing

  • Contract administration: planning, negotiating and managing contracts made with customers, vendors, partners or employees

  • Project management: organizing a company’s resources to guide a specific task or event toward completion and lead a team that achieves all of a project’s goals

  • Business planning: creating a roadmap that outlines the goals and functions of a business, showing critical thinking and a close attention to detail

  • Account management: overseeing and nurturing a company’s client relationships and strengthening a company’s sales structure

Daniel Zhao, a senior economist and data scientist at Glassdoor, tells CNBC Make It that these skills are directly tied to the undercurrent of the tight labor market, and the need to stay competitive in today’s increasingly data-driven world.
