Available Flexible Jobs Continue to Increase
(June 5, 2012) Last month, FlexJobs, the leading job service for finding flexible employment such as telecommuting, part-time and other flexible positions, saw an increase in open positions.
"For companies that may be on the fence about hiring, telecommuting jobs can provide big benefits such as a way to hire new employees and save on costs like overhead and real estate," said Sara Sutton Fell, CEO of FlexJobs. "This may explain why in a down market, FlexJobs continues to see an increase in open positions.
According to the Flexible Index Report for May 2012, the career fields with the largest amount of open positions were:
