Can’t find your dream job?! Try FlexJobs – the leading online service for hand-screened and professional flexible, part-time, telecommuting, and freelance job listings. FlexJobs gives job seekers an ad-free way to find legitimate jobs quickly, easily and safely.

A proud member of the Better Business Bureau, FlexJobs skilled research team provides quality job leads in over 50 career categories, ranging from entry-level to executive, freelance to full-time.

FlexJobs is a green company which is leading the way to the future of work by promoting telecommuting and flexible jobs that allow people to enjoy work and life in environmentally sustainable ways.

FlexJobs promises scam-free, personally reviewed telecommuting job opportunities. While all the job postings on FlexJobs are available free elsewhere (each links to its original posting), FlexJobs makes them much more convenient to find because it reviews them and effectively filters out the work at home scams.

And it finds jobs that are not actively advertised as telecommuting jobs. But, of course, convenience has a price. And in this case, it’s $14.95/month or $49.95/year.

In response to an internal memo leaked to the press last month that Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer plans to cut the all company’s telecommuting programs, Sara Sutton Fell, CEO of FlexJobs, said: “Essentially, we are flabbergasted that a company in this day and age would not allow employees to telecommute.”

She continued: “Time and time again, studies show that employees are not only more productive, but also happier.”

Included in the studies Mrs. Fell refers to are one conducted by Stanford in 2011 that showed a 15% increase in productivity with staff that did their jobs from home.

In addition, The Telework Research Network has sited several facts that companies have reported back in favor of offering the option to telecommute, including, “Businesses lose $600 billion a year in workplace distractions.”

“For the record, our entire staff telecommutes and we all appreciate the flexibility,” added Mrs. Fell. “As the CEO, I am very pleased with the productivity and hope to continue to spread the word that allowing employees flexibility is a win-win option.”

FlexJobs offers work in multiple areas, from account management and recruiting positions to legal work and retail.

To date, the company has helped over 300,000 people in their job searches and is the only job site to receive an Online Trust Award for Excellence in Consumer Trust.

Mrs. Fell herself was honored two years ago by Workforce Management as a “2011 Game Changer” in the employment field.
