Issue #24 — The new normal 👀

Hi,

5% of workers did their job remotely before 2020 and now more than half work remotely. Sure, some people will settle back into the main corporate office once vaccines have made the world safer. BUT many people, both on the employee side and the employer side, have now gotten used to the new mode of working, and can’t imagine going back to the old status quo.

84% of employers plan to expand remote working, according to a World Economic Forum report.

If you’re in the market for a new role, and you have the right skills for a position in e-commerce, healthcare, or digital content, you’re in luck: they’re all on the list of LinkedIn’s predictions for the hottest jobs of 2021.

The shift is also enabling a career change for many — from sales to social media, research to medical writing, and entrepreneur to life coach.

Are you looking into a job or looking into hiring, then keep these skills and trends in mind.

In this newsletter, we will share with you things like 25 SportsTech startups worth investing in, fan engagement and quantifying football.
