Try FlexJobs for Online Job Searching and More

When Steve Jobs passed away last October, I felt an unexpected sadness at the loss of a man I had never met that went beyond my typical overly-sentimental reaction when a person of note dies. I felt a great debt to him as his life’s work and creations ultimately made it possible for me to be home with my kids and create a livelihood for myself that I had never imagined possible. With the purchase of my MacBook Pro and my iPhone, I was able to work on the go, from coffee shops and tot lots, at nights and early mornings, whenever, wherever I could. I discovered a variety of opportunities to make money all because my technology allowed me to work flexible hours and from random locations.

Now, thanks to instant, wireless technology, people all over the world are able to make money from home, doing things they had never imagined. One company I have turned to in the past year when looking for extra income is an online company called FlexJobs. It’s an online job service site that focuses on finding a flexible job, including work from home positions, part-time hours, contract jobs and more.

One of the things I love about it is that each job posting is researched and reviewed by FlexJobs’ staff to avoid any scams, ads or too-good-to-be-true offers. FlexJobs’ researchers guarantee each job is a legitimate position from a reputable company. The site also offers resume tips, skills testing, and job finding tips.

For TodaysMama readers, FlexJobs is offering a FREE 3 month membership. To enter, just tell me your DREAM JOB in the comments.

    My dream job would be a travel food critic. I would go around the world and write a review of local foods. The stories behind those dishes, how it was eaten, in which season.

    I have been a member of Flexjobs for almost a year now and after obtaining several contract jobs, thanks to Flexjobs, and doing my research I have determined my dream job is to be a Flexjobs researcher. I am a freelance writer/researcher who has worked from home for the past 10 years. I am passionate that anyone who wants a balance between their work life and their personal life can achieve that. I would love to put my writing and research skills to use contributing to the pool of available jobs on Flexjobs so that I can help other realize their dreams. Because positions with Flexjobs occur infrequently (once there people seldom leave), I am searching for writing, researching and editing jobs that allow flexible hours and telecommuting from anywhere.

    I’m a planner, so my dream job would be an online travel agent or event planner.

    My dream job would be working as the social media manager for a fabulous company who loves working with bloggers. Of course, it would be something where I could work primarily from home.
