In a tight labor market, companies may favor less stringent education requirements in an effort to access a greater pool of qualified candidates. In fact, research by PayScale found that 50 percent of employers surveyed said they are hiring more employees with no formal college education and 69 percent reported that their organization prioritizes skills over formal education or degrees when hiring new employees. To demonstrate the remote job opportunities available to professionals without bachelor’s degrees, such as those with associate’s degrees, FlexJobs has identified 10 full-time, employee-level, 100% remote jobs open to workers with an associate degree-level education.
