DES MOINES, IOWA (March 3, 2021) — Iowa Workforce Development announced today that it has added a remote/work from home jobs display to its website in order to assist job seekers specifically looking for these opportunities.
"Given there are over 76,000 jobs available in Iowa currently, it can be difficult to identify job opportunities that specifically provide remote or work from home flexibility. We wanted to make it easier for Iowans who need to work from home because of the pandemic or for other reasons, to identify and apply for those jobs," said Director Beth Townsend, Iowa Workforce Development. "We also encourage Iowa's employers to post their remote and work from home opportunities on IowaWORKS.gov so we can increase the access to those job seekers."
The list of remote / work from home jobs can be found on the www.IowaWORKS.gov home page. Once you open the home page, scroll down to see the new purple card on the left marked "Work from home in these exciting career opportunities." You can click the button on that card to see the list of jobs displayed, with a brief job description. When you click on a job title, it will be necessary to log into IowaWORKS.gov to see the full description and how to apply.
