“Working part-time can be a great solution for many people, such as working parents, caregivers, semi-retirees, career changers, and others who for whatever reason don’t find a full-time schedule appealing,” said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs
BOULDER, Colo. (PRWEB) July 09, 2018
Seventy-seven percent of workers in a recent survey said they'd be more likely to accept a job offer if they knew they could telecommute at least some of the time. To help job seekers interested in finding part-time jobs where they can also work from home, today FlexJobs released a list of the Top 25 Companies to Watch for Part-Time Remote Jobs. This list is based on an analysis of over 50,000 companies and looks specifically at their part-time job posting histories that offered either full or partial telecommute options in FlexJobs’ database during the first six months of 2018 (January 1 through June 30). A “part-time job” refers to jobs that require less than 40 hours of work per week.
Part-time work can be an attractive option for many different reasons. It can allow workers to continue in and/or advance their careers without having to commit to a full-time schedule, become exposed to new industries or career paths, grow their professional networks, supplement income during summer or holiday breaks, help transition to retirement, and/or pursue passions outside of their chosen professions.
“Working part-time can be a great solution for many people, such as working parents, caregivers, semi-retirees, career changers, and others who for whatever reason don’t find a full-time schedule appealing,” said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “In fact, one of FlexJobs’ surveys found that more people reported being interested in a part-time schedule (46%) than being interested in freelance work (39%). The good news is that we have seen significant growth in the depth and variety of opportunities for professional remote, part-time jobs over the past few years. We hope this list of companies serves as a great resource for workers who are interested not only in a reduced schedule, but also prefer working outside of a traditional office setting,” Sutton Fell concluded.
Education, healthcare, and human resources are among the top industries represented on this list. The jobs these companies are hiring for range in experience from entry-level through senior-level management and have varied educational requirements.
