Remote work gives job seekers more opportunities

What was once 200 different U.S. labor markets have become one big one.

“You have a lot more labor mobility, and a lot more liquidity.”


John H. Chuang, founder and CEO of Aquent, has been placing talent in some of the country's most well-known companies for 35 years. And he's never seen such rapid and positive change for job seekers. “If you lived in San Diego, you probably didn't get a job in Philadelphia. But today, that's all changing.” Chuang said many employers have already transitioned to remote work only. If you desire to work remote only, just say so. Chuang says job seekers should no longer enter a city in the location setting on their favorite job site and instead enter words like “remote work” or “work from home.”
