BOULDER, Colo. (PRWEB) August 13, 2018
It’s a job seeker’s market, with low unemployment, projected pay raises, and nearly two-thirds of U.S. employers planning to hire full-time, permanent workers in the second half of 2018. To help job seekers interested in finding flexible jobs, FlexJobs has identified the “Top 40 Companies Hiring for Flexible Jobs” during the last year. This list is based on an analysis of over 50,000 companies and looks specifically at their flexible job posting histories in the FlexJobs database between July 31, 2017, and July 31, 2018. A “flexible job” is defined as a professional-level job that has a telecommuting, flexible schedule, part-time, or freelance component.
The top 10 career categories hiring for flexible jobs in 2018, according to the FlexJobs database, are:
2. Computer & IT
3. Medical & Health
4. Customer Service
5. Education & Training
6. Account/Project Management
8. Accounting & Finance
10. HR & Recruiting
“Companies are competing in a tight labor market, and in order to attract and retain top talent, they need to better meet employees’ expectations about what it means to have a fulfilling and healthy career—and at the top of that list is the desire for work flexibility,” said Sara Sutton, founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “So we have seen and expect to continue seeing the flexible job marketplace diversify, as companies across all sizes and industries recognize it as a top perk for employees, as well bringing bottom-line benefits to them,” Sutton concluded.
Below are the top 10 companies, excluding staffing agencies, that recruited for the most flexible jobs since July 2017 on FlexJobs, as well as examples of flexible jobs currently posted.
