It’s really hard to tell. My hunch is the remote jobs are here to stay, but they’ll be limited to high performers with great portfolios. Years down the road I imagine it will be a bit of a hybrid approach.

Even now, I see on-site job postings so I think it depends more on the type of company. Some companies are remote forever whereas others are remote conditional, i.e. they allow it as long as there aren’t more global health crises in the future, everyone doesn’t have wfh fatigue and wants to go back to the office etc.

I’m struggling with a similar situation. I imagine a lot of agencies/companies will be more flexible with WFH to be competitive for now, but they’re also going to do whatever it takes not to lose any more money on the commercial real-estate they’ve already invested in. In terms of workflow, it’s one thing when we’re all WFH, but as soon as more people go back to the office full time I imagine that will create an imbalance that will likely result in the pendulum swinging one way or another. Given the commercial real-estate angle, my guess is said pendulum will swing more towards everyone being forced to go back to the office full time.
