According to Global Workplace Analytics, telecommuting has grown almost 80 percent from 2005 to 2012, and this growth has been in a variety of different sectors. There has been 122 percent growth for state government, 87 percent growth for not-for-profit, 70 percent growth in for-profit, and 62 percent for local government. The federal sector has also grown, but the growth shown of 421 percent includes a large amount of telecommuting that happened in 2005-2006 surrounding Hurricane Katrina.

“With hundreds of hours spent each week researching thousands of job openings, these are the most commonly seen and posted job titles that offer telecommuting arrangements,” Jessica Howington, online job researcher and writer, stated. “But another trend that we continue to see is the overall variety in job titles that you wouldn’t expect. For example, recent jobs added include Clinical Development Analyst, Senior Vice President, Package Designer, and Implementation Engineer.”
