“For a variety of reasons, part-time jobs can be a very attractive option for the pool of educated and highly skilled job seekers who want to continue their career but either don’t want to or aren’t able to commit to a full-time job,” said Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs
BOULDER, Colo. (PRWEB) April 09, 2018
According to a FlexJobs' survey of more than 5,000 workers, more people reported being interested in a part-time schedule (46%) than being interested in freelance work (39%). Currently, more than one in six people employed in the U.S. work part-time, which is defined as working less than 35 hours a week. To help job seekers interested in finding professional part-time jobs, today FlexJobs released a list of the top 50 companies hiring for professional part-time jobs. This list is based on an analysis of over 49,000 companies and looks specifically at their part-time job posting histories in FlexJobs’ database during the first quarter of 2018 (January 1 through March 31).
American Red Cross, Hilton, K12, and UnitedHealth Group are among the notable companies with the most part-time job listings between January 1 and March 31, 2018. Education, customer service, healthcare, media, and finance are well-represented industries featured on this list of companies with strong part-time hiring activity so far in 2018. Some examples of the part-time jobs these companies are currently hiring for include nurse, photographer, project manager, speech therapist, journalist, information security engineer, and tutor.
“For a variety of reasons, such as family, health issues, or caregiving responsibilities, part-time jobs can be a very attractive option for the pool of educated and highly skilled job seekers who want to continue their career but either don’t want to or aren’t able to commit to a full-time job,” said Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “Part-time jobs can also serve as an excellent avenue for career changers interested in gaining experience in a new industry, or for semi-retirees who want to stay active in the workforce. Despite the misconception that part-time positions are usually lower paying, professional-level part-time jobs do exist for people at all career levels,” Sutton Fell concluded.
The job opportunities at these companies include both employee and freelance options, with hours varying from just a handful of hours each week, to 35 hours a week. Many of these companies were also top employers for remote-friendly jobs, having been included in FlexJobs’ 2018 Top 100 Companies for Remote Jobs list.
According to Hilton, who earned the top spot on the Top 50 Companies for Part-Time Jobs list, “At Hilton, our part-time career options are an extension of our commitment to create a work environment where every Team Member can thrive,” said Amber Weaver, director of corporate recruitment, Hilton. “Providing flexibility in work schedules is just one of the ways that Hilton strives to strike a balance between career and personal lives. From first-time job seekers and military family members to the stay-at-home parent, we are constantly working to provide Team Members with meaningful options.”
