There are also several online job board sites that can be very helpful when seeking part time and flexible work. Most allow you to search for "part time" only positions. However, we found FlexJobs.com to be one of the best job boards available for flexible work. You can browse jobs for free, but there is a small price for a membership ($14.95 for a month) if you want more details or to apply. This may be worth it though due to the number of legitimate, flexible, and professional jobs this site boasts. You won't find junk postings or scams on this site. You can also narrow your search down by the following options: telecommuting jobs, part time jobs, freelance jobs, flexible schedule jobs, and alternative schedule jobs.

So, whatever stage of life you are in now, it's good to know that are plenty of options for flexible work these days. If you need a part time position, hopefully you now have a good place to start.

If you are still seeking the right career fit or industry, become a member today.
