The share of jobs offering hybrid opportunities has been growing — going "from around 2% before the pandemic," says Julia Pollak, labor economist at ZipRecruiter, "to around 10% now."   

Some industries have proven more flexible than others, she adds. More than a third, 38%, of job listings in the finance and insurance industry now offer remote or hybrid opportunities, for example, as well as 33% of jobs in tech and 15% of jobs in law.

And as the economy adds more jobs and employers look for workers, many companies are also relaxing requirements related to years of experience or advanced degrees. Some just require a bachelor's degree.

Here are six in-demand hybrid jobs, according to Monster and Flexjobs, along with their median annual salaries, according to Payscale. Each of these only requires a BA.

Look for jobs like the above on sites including Indeed, ZipRecruiter, Monster, LinkedIn, and FlexJobs.

When searching for a hybrid role on these sites, make sure to "search for that keyword" specifically, says Brie Reynolds, career development manager at FlexJobs. "We see those jobs listed as 'partially remote' jobs, so that might be another keyword to search for," she adds. That helps ensure the jobs that pop up have the kind of flexibility you're looking for.
