FlexJobs' researchers search the web for telecommuting, freelance and part-time jobs so you don't have to. The company claims its staff members "hand-screen" each job and researches each company to make sure the jobs in its listing are legitimate. The site also publishes information about how to avoid scam jobs and lists new job scams to watch out for.
Here are other good things we found at the FlexJobs site:
Large Volume of Flexible Jobs: FlexJobs' focus is only on jobs that provide some flexibility, such as telecommuting, freelance or part-time jobs. The site provides freelancers with thousands of job listings in over 150 job categories that can be searched by category, location, schedule (i.e., full-time, part-time, temporary), and kind of flexibility (i.e., telecommuting, freelancing, flexible schedule). In addition to conducting your own job search, companies that are hiring can view your summary of qualifications and your resume.
