Think about the time you were in elementary school. Could you imagine going to school and having almost full access to school resources from home? If you are a teacher, was there ever a time when you thought that you would be able to do your job effectively from home?
Depending on how far you are thinking back to, it might not have been possible to be a student or a teacher and be able to attend school from the comfort of your own home.
Technology has come a long way.
Technology continues to evolve with new programs and services becoming available quickly to make remote work even easier than it was even back in March.
There are always going to be jobs and functions that cannot be done remotely. However, companies that frowned on remote work or jobs previously thought impossible to be done remotely have found a way to make it work.
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the lives of so many people. We have all had to adjust to a “new normal,” and we have no idea when this pandemic will indeed come to an end.
For job recruiters, we have realized what remote work means for the job market. We realized that people who are thinking outside of the box will want to expand their search to a much wider audience. Companies will start to look for the right person, regardless of where they are.
This works in both directions. New York workers can now expand their search to anywhere in the country to look for work. Companies can now look beyond their geography to look for the best possible talent available.
At the Essex Companies, we are working hard to put the right people in the right positions. It no longer matters where you are. If you are looking for a position with the best companies in the country, New York is the place to look. If you are a hiring manager and looking for the best talent available, New York City is the place to look.
