She’s the CEO of FlexJobs, a site “where you’ll find the best telecommuting and online jobs, from freelance to fulltime, all hand-screened and legitimate. Guaranteed.”
FlexJobs has been featured on CNN, Forbes.com, and AOL.com.
I recently had an opportunity to interview Sara about FlexJobs and how the site can benefit YOU….
ME: How many job opportunities are currently listed on FlexJobs?
SARA: We have over 2000 active, current telecommuting jobs in our database. They range from full-time to freelance, and the job opportunities are in over 50 different professional categories.
ME: How often are new job announcements added to the FlexJobs database?
SARA: We add about 40-50 new jobs daily, Monday through Friday.
ME: How long do job announcements stay “active”? Are they flushed out of the system every few weeks/months?
SARA: We hand-clean the job postings on our site constantly, removing any job postings that have been removed or are no longer active. There are no jobs over 60 days in our database.
ME: What is the biggest “advantage” of joining FlexJobs?
SARA: There are many, many benefits of our service, but the biggest in my opinion is saving immense amounts of time by letting our skilled and trained research team do the endless digging for the best legitimate, scam-free job leads (instead of you having to do it). Close follow ups would be that we provide excellent customer service (including by phone), offer a money-back guarantee, and have a clean, well-designed, ad-free website.
ME: Are all of the opportunities in the FlexJobs database “virtual”…or are some local opportunities also offered?
SARA: All of the jobs in our site involve or offer SOME level of telecommuting, from 100% virtual, online jobs to jobs that have some kind of geographical requirement. We have recently added a great new feature that allows users to search for jobs available only in their state or region which we’re really excited about!
ME: How much does it cost to subscribe?
SARA: Subscriptions are $14.95/month or $49.95/year.
If you’re looking for a part-time, flex-time, or virtual job opportunity, consider FlexJobs. You might just find what you’re looking for…
