Are you a seasoned professional looking for part-time, flexible or seasonal work? If you opt to sign up at this site, you will get job listings sent to your email. FlexProfessionals specializes in finding jobs in Finance & Accounting, Administration, Sales & Account Management, Marketing, Public Relations, Communications, Business Development, Project Management, Technical & Proposal Writing, Human Resources, Web Development, Graphic Design and Legal.
No fee for job seekers. Companies wanting to fill positions will be charged a fee. Jobs found here will probably pay less per hour than similar full-time positions and will not have benefits. It seems they still pay better than average for part-time work.
FlexProfessionals differs from FlexJobs (which charges a fee to get the site’s list of job opportunities). Professional jobs can be found through Indeed and Glassdoor, which are generic job-search sites that also earn high scores from Hustlevida.
Employers on FlexProfessionals are mostly small businesses and non-profits that cannot afford the pay and benefits required by a full-time workforce. The site has limited geographic reach. Posted jobs are mainly in Boston and Washington, D.C. and it is evident on the site that even the posted remote positions favor workers in those two cities, because occasional appearances in the office may be required.
FlexProfessionals does not charge workers for its services, there were very few complaints found. There was no evidence of a downside if you want to sign up with this company – especially if you are looking for a job within its geographic reach.
