Part-time work is a popular way to make money. Combine a part-time schedule with the ability to work from home, and it can be the ultimate in work flexibility for many job seekers.
People who work from home find themselves enjoying a range of benefits--increased productivity, less stress from avoiding a commute, more time to spend with family or on personal matters, and the ability to create a comfortable home office, just to name a few.
Our sponsor, FlexJobs, conducted an annual survey and found some interesting results. Respondents were asked about which flexible work options they’re “most interested” in. Working part-time hours and working remotely part of the time were tied at 46 percent.
