FlexJobs was created in 2007 to provide a trusted, more effective, friendly, and overall better way to find professional remote, and flexible jobs.
Today, FlexJobs is one of the nation's leading companies in disrupting the traditional workforce and advocating for more remote and flexible work opportunities.
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 research each company to ensure the jobs in its listing are legitimate. The site also publishes information about avoiding scams and lists new job scams to watch out for.
FlexJobs is not a staffing agency, temp firm, or headhunter and cannot guarantee you will be hired.
FlexJobs offers a variety of positions in a variety of industries. The company is best suited for people looking for the following jobs/positions:
FlexJobs is all about finding positions that don't fit the traditional 9 to 5 workweek.
Additionally, there are over 50 career categories. Members can search for jobs in just about any industry, including account management, advertising, event planning, insurance, graphic design, marketing, sales, software development, web design, mortgage and real estate, writing, and more.
The only thing you need to access FlexJobs is an internet browser.

FlexJob offers its members exclusive access to Career Coaching and Resume Review. However, keep in mind that it is not free (even if you're a member) but deeply discounted.
During a 30-minute career coaching session, you can ask FlexJobs' coaches any questions you might have regarding finding a new career. The Resume Review is an excellent service if you want to update your resume and make sure it's professional and optimized for your industry.

While you can get quite a bit of information for free from FlexJob, you need to be a paying member if you want to access a full job listing. Weekly memberships begin at only $6.95 and can go up to a year ($49.95).
FlexJobs does not list salary information on its available jobs. The company explains that it cannot always offer that information because not all employers want to reveal what they pay as it can affect their ability to negotiate terms, create friction between current and new employees, and decrease their competitive advantage with other companies. Although all of these reasons are plausible, knowing what the company pays can help freelancers choose the positions that meet their financial needs.
Additionally, Members are on their own when negotiating with potential employers whose jobs are posted on the site. FlexJobs does not assist in negotiating employment terms or provide any support in matters of how workers are paid.
