Change in Circumstances Means a Change to Remote Work
Sometimes we make a plan, and it works out perfectly. Other times, we make a plan and have to adjust it as we go.
That’s the situation that Vanessa M. found herself in when her circumstances changed.
“My previous employer would not allow managers to work from home full-time,” she said.
Motivating her switch to remote work was the fact that she has immediate family in two different states.
Vanessa joined FlexJobs to find a remote job that would allow her to spend time with her family as much as possible. It “was the best investment in my job search,” she says.
A Wealth of Opportunity
Vanessa was pleased with the number of quality jobs she found on FlexJobs. “I knew fully remote employment options were increasing,” she said. However, she never realized “just how many Fortune 500 companies have a significant remote worker population.”
Using the advanced search tools helped Vanessa “hone the vast listings to only those I was interested in.” Eventually, she found a full-time, remote job as an enrollment financial analyst with Parallon, a healthcare consulting company. Even though the company headquarters are in Nashville, Tennessee, Vanessa remains in Georgia, closer to her family.
Membership Worth Every Cent
Vanessa thinks that a FlexJobs membership is “worth every cent. The fact that the postings are pre-vetted” allowed her to focus on the company and the job, instead of trying to figure out if the posting was a scam.
While Vanessa devoted much of her job search to researching companies that matched her career goals, and “was very pleased with the variety and quality of opportunities posted,” she also found value in the skills tests and resume tools. “The full turnkey FlexJobs experience was wonderful.”
Baby Boomer Isn’t Going Bust
Thanks to the combination of quality job postings, testing, and tools available to FlexJobs members, Vanessa was able to continue working at a time when she may have been forced into an early retirement. Thanks to remote work, Vanessa can work full-time for as long as she wants and spend much-needed time with her family.
