“U.S. Citizens and those authorized to work in the U.S. are encouraged to apply. We are unable to sponsor at this time.”
New research from a professor of Leadership at George Washington University finds that remote work has emboldened some to disengage from their primary employers—sometimes without any remorse.
The Wall Street Journal recently published an article showing that some “homers”—those who eschew the office and prefer to work from home—have a secret: They have two jobs. The demands of working a full-time job from home were apparently not enough to prevent some from taking on an extra one.
A troubling example is that a Washington DC assistant principal was found also working as a principal in Rhode Island. Nobody noticed a performance decline. Indeed, he was praised for his skills. His moonlighting was duplicity against the citizens—parents and students alike—of Washington and Providence. The DC Board of Ethics is taking this so seriously that in addition to dismissal, thousands of dollars in fines and a year in jail are pending.
Working a second job is nothing new. Moonlighting is as old as moonlight. Most who moonlight are hovering around federally defined livable wages and are disproportionally women and single parents. These people need the extra funds.
That’s not the case with today’s remote workers. Ziprecruiter reports that remote workers make $66,000 annually on average, far above the livable wage. The WSJ reports that those they interviewed are on track to make $200,000 to $600,000 per year with that extra job. This is fundamentally different than someone who labors in landscaping during the day and in restaurant kitchens in the evening.

A recent survey found that companies hiring tech workers are getting more flexible in a lot of ways.
Almost 40% of people who are hiring for positions in tech this year said they regularly recruit developers from non-academic backgrounds, up significantly from 23% in 2021.
And another 41% do so at least some of the time, according to a survey from CodinGame and CoderPad. Similarly, 30% said they’d be willing to remove CVs from the hiring process entirely, focusing instead on interviews and tech assessments, with another 27% saying they’d consider doing so.
The survey comes as companies continue to struggle with planning any return to the office as the omicron-variant-driven wave of the pandemic continues to infect large numbers across the country. It was conducted from October through December last year and included 14,000 developers and recruiters from 131 countries.
That comes as almost 50% of recruiters surveyed called finding qualified candidates a challenge, as many are faced with a push to hire candidates after early pandemic hiring freezes and, in some cases, a wave of resignations. Some 65% of recruiters surveyed said they consider bias an issue in technical recruitment, which may also lead them to consider a wider candidate pool.
CodinGame creates games for developers to build their skills, and CoderPad offers a remote job interview platform allowing for collaborative programming.

Ringing in the New Year is a festivity celebrated around the world–always with great enthusiasm and a strong sense of anticipation for the opportunities and challenges another year brings.
2022 is likely to be filled with many new and unique opportunities the likes of which we have not seen before. skilled labor and staff shortages may persist well into the new year leaving many industries struggling to recover as demand for products and services inevitably increases.
If we’ve learned anything, it’s that change is the only constant and if we are to survive change we have to develop adaptation strategies–otherwise, we’ll be left behind wondering what just happened.
