Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many jobs that typically require going into an office have become work-from-home jobs — albeit temporarily in many cases. However, some companies regularly hire for positions that are “work from anywhere,” giving their employees the perk of location independence — and this is now something that many workers want. A survey published by Flexjobs in August 2020 found that 66% of American workers would prefer to work remotely full-time after the pandemic is over.
