I currently working as project coordinator (on-site) for 3 months 10hrs everyday with package $75k, I want to move to remote or hybrid work but I only have 8 months of experience from my previous employer and I have completed my master's in construction management in 2021. Should I stay in my role a bit longer to gain experience or I am not able to find remote or hybrid matching my profile. Your advice and comments are much appreciated.

It's been hard for me to find 100% remote work as a civil engineer since I am often needed on-site. Hybrid work seems a bit more realistic for this industry. Also, I do want to mention that I have always worked pretty long hours as a civil engineer because work starts so early. Have you asked your employer if a couple remote days per month is possible as long as you are not needed on-site?

I have daily meetings to conduct and update , I can work from home only if I have an emergency, I would like to navigate to a position for hybrid roles

If you are happy with your current job and feel that you can continue to grow in your role, then I would recommend staying in your current position for a little longer. Gaining more experience will only help you as you look for new opportunities down the road. That being said, if you are not content with your current position or feel that you are not learning enough, then it may be time to start looking for a new opportunity. There are many companies who are willing to hire employees with less than two years of experience, so don't let that hold you back.

Thank you for your insight

It can be difficult to find a remote or hybrid position that matches your profile with only 8 months of experience. However, if you are willing to stay in your current role for a little longer, you may be able to gain the experience you need to make the move to remote or hybrid work.

Are there any specific companies or roles that you're interested in? If so, it may be worth targeting those positions specifically and pursuing additional experience or training that will make you a stronger candidate.

Just a thought, wanted to discuss with you all.
Why do companies force us to work from office , when work can be done from anywhere. Some companies allow work from home but they need to work from their base location (Bangalore, Pune , Hyderabad) , do you also think there is some political pressure on corporates to ask their employees to stay in these cities so that locals can ask for whatever rent they want ?
