What is flexible work?
FlexJobs defines flexible work as including “full-time and part-time remote jobs, employee and freelance jobs, and on-site jobs with flexible, part-time, and alternative schedules.”
But if you’re lucky enough to land one of these jobs, don’t expect to spend the day with your feet up, watching soap operas. Even a remote job is still work — and it’s full of challenges.
As we noted in “7 Common Challenges of Working From Home — and How to Master Them“:
“Working remotely means flexibility and freedom. No commute, no office politics, no gum-chewing cubicle mate to get on your nerves. But be aware of potential drawbacks, which can range from minor annoyances to serious issues that can make or break an at-home career.”
