Of those who work remotely, nearly two-thirds of would like to continue to do so.
While a study from GoTo and LogMeIn found that 62% of Americans would take a pay cut to work from home, working from home doesn’t have to lower your income.

These roles for educated knowledge workers offer a strong outlook today, as well as in a post-COVID world.
