I lost my job due to COVID-19, but honestly, I already wanted a change. I was losing precious hours commuting and that took me away from my toddler and husband. Now I can focus on being productive and, when work is done, on being a wife and mom. I have a new outlook on life. I can actually have it all: a family and a career with work-life balance. I never intend to return to a job that isn't flexible. I'm really grateful and excited I made the choice to subscribe to FlexJobs!

I'd accomplished everything I wanted to in my last position and there was no chance of advancement. I also wanted to change to a career where I was helping others and hopefully increase my salary. Being able to work from home is a big plus. Being a single dad, it's nice not to commute to work, and it's easier to work additional hours when needed. I found FlexJobs' customizable search filters most effective in my search.

FlexJobs is easy to navigate and has a lot of great tools. I'm so glad I took a chance and bought a membership. I needed to find another flexible, work-from-home position. My son has autism, and my job allows me to stay home and care for my son while earning a steady income. I have the option to work full-time when my availability allows for it. It's very important for my mental health. I can easily take time off and rearrange my schedule to accommodate my son's appointments. It's a perfect fit!

With my husband being active-duty military, I knew a remote job would be the only way for me to pursue a stable career. I found the perfect job and I'm so grateful I had FlexJobs to help me. For the price of a cheap lunch, you could potentially change your life. FlexJobs makes it possible to avoid work-from-home scams and find companies that fit your needs. I set up an email alert for my search criteria so I'd be alerted as soon as new jobs were added and tailored my resume for each position.

Remote work is in such alignment with who I want to be as a husband and father. Having worked remotely due to COVID, I loved being able to create a better work-life balance and be more present for my family, and more productive professionally. Additionally, securing remote work will give us the flexibility to move closer to family and retain employment in my new role.

I'd been working virtually for years, but due to restructuring, my hours were cut. I still wanted a virtual job because I don't have to worry about bad weather and I like being home with my pets. My flexible job provides a better salary with less hours, and I can start and end my day when I like. The reason I think FlexJobs is the best service out there: they check on the companies posting to make sure they are legit, training is offered every week, and tests for skills are also helpful.

I'm a below-knee amputee and have recently had issues with my prosthesis but no financial resources to rectify them. I can still work, and working from home will provide discretionary income for a healthier diet and the ability to save. I can choose the schedule I prefer, as well as the range of hours I want to work. There are so many disabled adults who feel like they can no longer earn and/or contribute, but work-at-home positions can really enable them to enjoy life again.

We all tend to second-guess our abilities, but FlexJobs boosted my self-esteem. I've been a nurse for over 15 years and had been in search of a more flexible way to serve patients. I dabbled in travel and per diem nursing, but neither of those options truly gave me the flexibility I longed for, so I became a FlexJobs subscriber. Working remotely will aid me in sticking to a daily routine, will improve my overall health and well-being, and will prevent me from eating out every day.

My previous job was eliminated due to an acquisition, and I found the local job market was saturated. I knew commuting was not going to work for me, so I began looking on FlexJobs. Instead of commuting, I can take a short break and get started on homework for my online graduate program. Also, since my wife has an unconventional schedule, I can have lunch with her because of my flexible schedule. I can also get a morning workout in, and I get more work done remotely than I could in an office.

My disability made commuting difficult and requires that I sit in a reclined position. Also, my mother has Alzheimer's and cannot be left alone. For these reasons, I felt that getting a fully remote job was the best option for me. Having a remote job is life-changing! I no longer have to worry about the pain I had from commuting. As an added bonus, my hours are more flexible, so I can work when I'm feeling okay and rest when I need to, which reduces my anxiety and improves my overall health.

I was looking for a second part-time job to supplement my income, and I wanted it to be flexible so I could work it around my other job and do it from anywhere. I'll be able to pay off student loans faster, add writing pieces to my portfolio, and save time by not commuting. I can plan my job around my life, and I'm more confident about restarting my writing career knowing I can do it from anywhere around my current schedule. FlexJobs made it extremely easy for me to find work.

FlexJobs kept me motivated and gave me hope for a better role. I was able to get out of a toxic work environment and found a fantastic new job with a great team doing something I enjoy. The daily job email reminders kept me checking the boards every day. I've already seen the benefits of working remotely. It has not only allowed me to spend more time with family, but I'm able to see friends more and able to be more efficient with my time. FlexJobs is worth the price for the vetted positions.

FlexJobs was instrumental in my job search when I was laid off and needed to find 100% remote work. I have guardianship of two grandchildren who cannot attend school due to COVID-19, so I must be at home to help with their schooling and care. Working from home suits my personality, and I feel I accomplish more without the distractions of an office. I was very frustrated before using FlexJobs to find remote work. FlexJobs is a revelation.
