Emerging technology and pandemic-related disruptions are redefining the skills people need to succeed in their jobs.
In fact, according to the World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report, which surveyed executives across 15 industries in 26 countries, 73% of employers plan to offer reskilling and upskilling opportunities to their employees by 2025.

Don’t expect the work-from-home economy to go anywhere soon. Being able to effectively collaborate in a remote environment is a top priority for employers.

You can also indicate your remote work experience in the summary, location section, or as a bullet point (e.g., “Managed four remote employees using online collaboration tools like Zoom and Trello.”).
