Flexjobs - One of the Few Job Sites Worth Paying For

Written by
As a general rule I am against paying for sites that claim to offer work at home or telecommute. The vast majority are trying to make money from a membership site that offers little information. They might only have a handful of jobs, or they offer a list of jobs that are embedded from job search aggregators that you could search for free. The most outrageous example I have seen are websites made to look like a news site to give it more credibility. At the end of the day it is money for nothing.
 
Over the last 15 years of looking for work from home jobs, I have only found a handful of websites I would consider paying for. One of them is Flexjobs.
 
Flexjobs provides up to date listings of genuine telecommute jobs or work from home jobs, and employers post jobs on the site because it is an authority for telecommuting jobs.
 
They charge $14.95 a month, or $49.95 a year to access the contact information for all the latest jobs they have listed, as well as special partner offers, customer support and helpful articles.
 
Some people object to the idea of paying for these job listings. Normally I would agree, but with Flexjobs I understand why they do it.
 
Flexjobs is a business. There is a huge amount of information on the website that takes time and dedication to maintain and update. They hire people to search the internet for genuine job offers and screen the companies that offer them. All of this takes time and money, and when you think about it, at $14.95 dollars per month, you are paying 50 cents per day to save yourself hours and hours of time searching for jobs yourself, and researching the companies involved.
 
Of course, if you pay the membership fee, search the first day and then forget about it until the last day before it runs, you have wasted your money.
 
To find a telecommute job, you need to search every single day. You need to apply for all the jobs that you are interested in. You need to keep checking to see if new job offers have been added and apply immediately.  The more jobs you apply for, the more likely it is you will get a job offer.  Flexjobs is making it easier by weeding out all the dodgy work from home offers for you.
 
Most of the jobs are US based but they sometimes have jobs for international applicants. You can browse through the jobs listings before coming a member and will only need to sign up if you find something that you want to apply for.
