Market Research For College Students: Remote Jobs Exploration

remote-job

Remote jobs are on the rise. According to flexjobs, remote work has grown 159% since 2005. It’s clear that this shift in the workplace is only growing.

For your soon-to-be, or just recently graduated college students, remote work is worth looking into, particularly because plenty of remote jobs don’t require extensive experience and they offer the location freedom that so many students desire.

Now, why should your students look at market research when contemplating a job? Simply put, market research gives students a good idea of the trajectory of their desired field—so that they know how they can advance in the industry and can speak with confidence during job interviews about how the field is projected to grow over the next five years.

Market research will also help students...

  • Identify careers that have promising growth;
  • Determine the trajectory of their desired field;
  • Pinpoint which types of remote jobs will thrive over the next few years;
  • Stand out from the competition in interviews and daily job tasks.

Below is a list of types of remote work opportunities from flexjobs, along with market research reports (from us) that students can pursue after graduation.

There are a variety of careers and industries—so there’s something here for everyone.
