Whether by bus or train, car or bike, very rarely do you hear people talk about how they love their commute. Spending time in long amount of time in traffic or on public transportation is less than ideal.
With the rise of the extreme commuter, the amount of time people spend on the road has increased. And, our surveys have found that people seek remote work to eliminate their commute (and all of its associated headaches).
When Mary G. began looking for a new job, she immediately turned to FlexJobs. As a past user, Mary knew that it was the best place to find a remote job. And what Mary found ended up being more than “just another job.”
Ease of Use
Mary was self-employed for a year and ready for a change. She wanted a “100% remote job with a great company that has core values that resonate with me, a great team, and incredible company goals.”
While that may seem like a tall order, Mary knew exactly where to look. “I immediately thought of FlexJobs… I had used the site in the past… Based on the ease of use, I decided FlexJobs was my first stop for looking for a new job.”
Mary rejoined FlexJobs and applied to six jobs. The first company she applied to reached out for an interview. That company, Respondent, had everything Mary had hoped for in new job.
“They are an excellent start-up company with a solid team and great values and goals,” she said.
Working 100% remotely as a billing specialist, Mary says she’s “super happy.” But for Mary, “super happy” means so much more than liking her job duties.
“Working remotely provides uninterrupted productive work time along with a balance for family life,” Mary said.
And some of that productive working time is a result of not having to commute.
“I have always felt that commuting was a waste of good time. I could be working then!”
Lots of Options
Furthermore, FlexJobs made it easy for her to find companies and jobs to apply to. “Researching companies on FlexJobs is super easy.” She goes on to say that it’s simple to find openings that apply to your skill set. “They have a comprehensive list of new jobs daily.”
