Mark Haranas

Are tech workers willing to take a pay cut to work from home remotely? How many have already relocated? Will WFH improve diversity in the IT industry? A new report from Indeed surveying more than 600 IT professional sheds a light on these questions and many more.

Will Finding A New IT Job Be Easier Or Harder?

The 616 technology workers were split in terms of if they thought the new work-from-home environment would make it easier or harder to find a new job.

A slight majority, 52 percent, worried about their future job prospects if more companies make the permanent shift to work from home due to the increase of competition from workers in other areas and new geographies.

Approximately 45 percent of tech workers think the shift will make it easier for them to find a new job. Within this 45 percent, the majority -- about 80 percent -- says job searches will be easier once they can apply for openings throughout their metropolitan area or region because they no longer have to worry about commute times or the difficulties of relocating. Many of these workers also believe virtual work will provide them access to jobs they previously wanted but couldn’t accept due to location.
