So how do you get one of those jobs?

Jessica Schaeffer with the LaSalle Network, a staffing company in Chicago, joined ABC 7 Chicago remotely Thursday morning.

A lot of companies are staffing up from a contracting perspective, she said. Hiring managers are looking for flexibility.

And those who are fortunate enough to still have a position should make sure they do everything they can to add value to their organization.
