Fewer Indeed Job Listings Come With Education Requirements


The way that Americans work has rapidly changed within just the past decade alone. More people are trading in traditional 9 to 5 employment for jobs that let them work from home or come into the office just a few days per week. Demand for remote work and hybrid careers will only increase as folks seek work-life balance.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies transitioned to having employees do their jobs from home; this gave people extra time to avoid commutes, bond with their kids, and otherwise handle their personal responsibilities. Moving forward, a lot of working folks want to keep these things going.

At the same time, growing numbers of individuals are looking for jobs online with platforms like Upwork and Indeed. In the case of Indeed, fewer and fewer listings come with education requirements.

Years ago, it wasn’t uncommon for Indeed job listings to have different education standards for applicants to meet. In 2024, this is increasingly not the case anymore.
