If you want to find a flexible job, your best bet might be to join FlexJobs. And for one day, the cost of doing so will drop by half.

The membership-based job board — which specializes in postings for remote, part-time and other flexible jobs — will celebrate National Flex Day on Oct. 15 by lowering subscription fees by 50%.

To get the price break, just use the promo code FLEXDAY when you sign up for a membership.

FlexJobs also will host other activities to celebrate National Flex Day, including:

  • A free online career-coaching event with Brie Reynolds, career development manager and coach at FlexJobs. The one-hour event begins at 2 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
  • A virtual career fair highlighting remote positions at companies such as Appen, Belay, Education First, Hilton, Lionbridge, LiveOps, Sykes, Sutherland and Williams-Sonoma. This event will take place on Oct. 24.

Stop by FlexJobs’ National Flex Day webpage for more details. And to learn more about FlexJobs itself, check out our story “This Is an Easy Way to Find Legitimate Flexible Jobs.”

Who offers 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.”

Wondering which companies are most likely to offer flexible positions? Earlier this year, FlexJobs highlighted about two dozen such workplaces. You can learn more about them in our story “Which Companies Hire People to Work from Home?

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. 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.”
