The COVID-19 pandemic has led to many changes. And though some of the changes may be less than ideal, some have a silver lining.
FlexJobs member Sarah W. found her silver lining. After losing her job due to the pandemic, Sarah knew she wanted to keep working in the education field, but didn’t want to head back to the classroom. Fortunately, FlexJobs was able to connect Sarah with a job that checked off both requirements.
Pandemic-Induced Job Loss
Sarah says, “The COVID-19 situation put me out of work as a teacher/instructional support.” Knowing that in-person work was not in the cards, she joined FlexJobs. “I was looking for a work-from-home position that was also related to my background in education.”
As she searched for the perfect position, Sarah learned that “tailoring my resume and researching companies helped me find the perfect workplace for myself.” And for her, that means working as a freelance Enrollment Consultant with K12.
The Perfect Match
Sarah enjoys her new job and all of the benefits remote work offers. And though she’s no longer working with her students in-person, that doesn’t mean Sarah works alone. “I don’t need to drive that often and get to hang out more with my cats at home.”
Of course, there are other advantages, too. “I am not getting sick as often as I was working face-to-face with students.”
Furthermore, Sarah points out that with a membership, you can “personalize your job searches to find the right job for you.” By using advanced search options and filters, you can refine search results to perfectly match your needs.
