In its latest report, Virtual Vocations is bringing remote-enabled employers that are still hiring months into the COVID-19 pandemic to the center stage.
As one of the web’s leading remote job boards, Virtual Vocations has been connecting jobseekers with legitimate, hand-screened remote job openings from expert-vetted employers for the last 14 years. But according to CEO Laura Spawn, “the fourth quarter of 2020 was Virtual Vocations’ best-ever period for remote job postings.”
“From October 1 through December 31, the Virtual Vocations team sourced, screened, and added more than 160,000 remote and work from home job postings to our online job board,” Spawn said.
Many of those positions came from Virtual Vocations Employer Partners, businesses that work directly with the Virtual Vocations team to share their current openings with highly qualified professionals looking for at-home work.
During the final quarter of 2020, Virtual Vocations teamed up with more than four dozen Employer Partners representing industries like information technology (IT), healthcare, and sales—and in its latest report, Virtual Vocations is naming the top 15 partners that posted the most remote openings to its job board as the year came to a close.
Virtual Vocations’ Q4 Employer Partners Report also shares data that provides an optimistic outlook for jobseekers who value both flexibility and stability at work: among jobs posted by these employers to the company’s database in October, November, and December of last year, roughly 96% were fully remote, requiring no travel or on-site work, and more than half were permanent positions.
And it isn’t just experienced professionals who have the chance to land a work from home role: over a quarter (28.14%) of jobs posted by Virtual Vocations Employer Partners in Q4 of 2020 were entry-level positions, according to the company’s report. A full 56.89% of listings were for full-time remote jobs.
With headquarters in the U.S. and around the world in places like Canada, France, Hungary, and Hong Kong, Virtual Vocations Employer Partners “showcase the spectrum of online and telework jobs available to jobseekers,” Spawn says.
“As the economy continues to navigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we know more forward-thinking, proactive companies will embrace remote work, and Virtual Vocations will be here to assist them,” Spawn added.
In the fourth quarter of 2020, Virtual Vocations’ top 10 Employer Partners were as follows:
2. Achieve Test Prep
3. PSG Global Solutions
4. Honey Bar Media, Inc.
7. EK Health Services, Inc.
10. Elite Virtual Assistants
