Man Sees Bright Future After Landing Remote Job on FlexJobs
There are lots of reasons why people search for flexible jobs and remote work.
For example, some people want or need to spend more time with family. Or, other people don’t want to limit their job search due to geography.
And sometimes, there are multiple reasons for wanting a flexible or remote job.
Daniel S., the subject of this week’s success story, was in exactly that situation when he joined FlexJobs.
“I decided to look for a flexible job for two reasons,” he said. “Medical issues, which drain my energy levels, and a recent move left me more than one hour’s commute from the office.” As a member, Daniel had access to a wide range of flexible and remote jobs, eventually connecting with a full-time, remote job that met his needs.
Dealing with Untrustworthy Job Sites
Before joining FlexJobs, Daniel describes his confidence in other job sites as “shaky at best.” He was using other job sites to find flexible and remote jobs, but found that positions listed on these other sites weren’t always what they seemed. “For example,” he says, “I found one job advertised as remote, but after one email with the recruiter, it was clear that wasn’t the case.”
Daniel ultimately found a job through FlexJobs with Paylocity as a software engineer. For Daniel, the best part of using FlexJobs is that, unlike other job sites, he didn’t feel he needed to do a lot of research into the companies or jobs to figure out if they were legitimate remote opportunities. “FlexJobs gives a detailed description of the company posting the opening, as well as helpful other metrics like the company’s past job postings or whether other FlexJobs members have taken jobs there.”
A Bright Future with a Remote Job
At his new job, Daniel is able to take better care of himself every time his medical issues resurface. And, he saves two hours a day because he’s no longer commuting. Looking to the future, Daniel sees how a remote and flexible job can positively impact his future. “I dream of being able to be an available parent. Working at home would mean that I’m just a room away from my family!”
He “10 out of 10” recommends people join FlexJobs. “The membership is month-to-month, and the curation of the listings alone is well worth the price.”
