Sometimes we make a plan and it works out. And sometimes, we make a plan and have to adjust course.
That’s the situation Aanchal D. was in when her company was acquired, and she found out her department was being restructured.
Not satisfied with the changes, Aanchal decided to look for a different job in the same field.
But, she wanted something that would give her more flexibility.
That’s when she joined FlexJobs and found a job as a senior enterprise data governance professional at Humana. Now she works in a job that’s not only flexible, but also 100% remote.
One Positive Leads to Another
One of the biggest positives Aanchal found was that she no longer commutes. “My commute used to be over one hour each way,” she says. Thanks to her remote job, though, not only does she save on a commute, she didn’t have to move for the new job. She’s remained in New Jersey, while Humana is headquartered in Kentucky.
And the lack of commute means that Aanchal can do so much more with her time. “I will be able to do a lot more in my life with all the time and money I will be saving.” What does she think she’ll do with her newfound time? “Exercising, living a healthy lifestyle, and eating homemade food as I will have more time to cook.”
A Dream Role
Aanchal found that FlexJobs’ company profiles helped her get an edge during her job search. Because she knew what each company was looking for, she was able to tailor her resume for each job posting. And, she feels she was better prepared for the interviews because she knew “in advance what to expect during the interview.”
Now, Aanchal is in her “dream role.” She advises others to “just be patient” when searching for flexible and remote jobs, and eventually, you, too, will find your dream role.
