I Might Have Accidentally Found a Great Side Gig by Accident

I didn’t expect this to happen at all.

I was looking at an advertiser site for a company named FlexJobs, and I put in a search term to see how the FlexJobs website worked.

It turned up a part-time job listing that was perfect for my writing experience. Something I could do for a few hours a week to generate some gig cash. I mean, seriously, do we ever make too much money?

The entire experience caught me completely off guard in a good way.

So guess what I did, applied. We will see what happens.

FlexJobs is…

FlexJobs claims to be the “#1 job site to find remote work from home, and flexible job opportunities since 2007.”

According to this author, “FlexJobs was founded in 2007 in Boulder, Colorado by Sara Sutton Fell. A remote worker herself, Sara was frustrated with finding legitimate work-from-home opportunities. So she started up FlexJobs, a subscription job search site that, according to the FlexJobs website and subsequent interviews with Fell, curates every listing on their site, and the rest is internet business history!”

After getting very interested in the FlexJobs site, I spent a bunch of time on it. It certainly does not appear to be a scam. The company even says they are very focused on user happiness. They boast about their “No-Risk Satisfaction Guarantee – We want our users to be happy with our service, and if for any reason you’re not, let us know you’d like a refund within 30 days. You’ll get it. It’s that easy.”

Now that is the type of satisfaction guarantee to look for.

Here is what you should know, FlexJobs has a paid subscription service that you participate in. While that might be considered to be a downside, you can keep doing things the way you always have been, hunting all over the web yourself, trying to get discouraged, and filtering through the junk to find a flexible job. If that’s what floats your boat, go for it.

FlexJobs promotes they screen the listings that appear on their site, so you don’t have to.

So if you are looking for a side job or work you can do from home to earn some extra cash, go to the FlexJobs website and enter a keyword or two into the search box to see if anything catches your eye.

So Who Should Seriously Think About FlexJobs?

  • People interested in working from home or remotely some, or all, of the time.
  • Anyone looking for a career-oriented part-time job (on-site or remote).
  • Freelancers looking for more clients and projects.
  • Anyone looking for flexible or alternative schedules.
  • Parents wanting to be more flexible for their kids and families.
  • Someone looking for a second job or supplemental income that professionally utilizes their skills and education.
  • People who live in rural or local areas can’t find a job in their career field without moving.
  • People with physical or health issues wanting/needing to find flexible work or remote jobs to suit their needs.
  • Caretakers of loved ones with health issues, for the same reasons as above.
  • Retirees looking to stay professionally active and to earn some income.
  • Military spouses need the flexibility to work from anywhere if their spouses are re-stationed.
  • Competitive athletes wanting a professional job that will fit around their training and competition schedules.
  • And anyone else who would appreciate a job that better fits with their life, not a life that fits with their job!

FlexJobs Can Solve Debt Problems

Sometimes what people need to resolve money struggles is not debt intervention but income intervention. I’ve helped so many people over the years solve their debt crisis by finding a better job or just having a side job to bring in extra money.

The coronavirus pandemic has been absolutely horrible, but it has opened up more possibilities for people to work in their spare time, off-hours, and to do it remotely.
