Boulder, CO (PRWEB) April 24, 2017
More than one in six people employed in the U.S. currently work part-time. To help job seekers interested in finding professional part-time jobs, today FlexJobs released a list of fifty companies recently hiring for part-time jobs. This list is based on an analysis of over 40,000 companies and looks specifically at the part-time job posting histories in FlexJobs’ database during the first quarter of 2017 (January 1 through March 31).
“Part-time work really used to be associated with temporary, low-skilled or entry-level positions, but today there are excellent professional part-time opportunities available in a much wider variety of industries and careers than ever before,” said Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “This is great news for people who need or want a reduced work schedule or who prefer to more diversity in their jobs, for example working parents, freelancers, semi-retirees, people with health issues, or people who take care of loved ones with health issues. The good news for these job seekers is that diverse organizations, such as private corporations, non-profits, public companies, start-ups and government agencies, are increasingly interested in leveraging the talents of part-time workers,” Sutton Fell concluded.
Healthcare, education, finance, technology and other industries are represented on this list of companies with strong part-time hiring activity so far in 2017. Some examples of the part-time jobs these companies are currently hiring for include pediatrician, teacher, graphic designer, bookkeeper, and clinical research coordinator.
Johns Hopkins University, Hilton Worldwide, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt are among the notable companies with the most part-time job listings between January 1 and March 31, 2017. The job opportunities posted include both employee and freelance options, and the hours vary from just a handful of hours each week, to 30 hours or more.
