Whether you are reentering the workforce after taking some time off or looking for a new opportunity, making sure a job fits into your busy life can be challenging. How can you find a position that gives you the most work-life satisfaction? Here are our tips:
Research flex-friendly companies online. Here are a few of our favorite online resources:
Check out smaller companies. At Mom Corps, we often find that smaller companies are more willing to accommodate flexibility needs, as they realize the business advantages of a flexible workforce. With a smaller company, there’s often less red-tape and cultural barriers to overcome in your pursuit of flexible work.
Search Mom Corps’ job listings. Search our Job Postings and apply to become a candidate for all sorts of flexible positions. And by becoming a candidate, you will automatically be signed up for our Hot Jobs newsletter to get flexible positions sent weekly to your inbox.

Ask for more information. Once you find a position you are interested in, find out more about the company’s culture. The Wall Street Journal suggests you “look for clues during the interview that might suggest a company embraces flexibility.” Laptops and portable devices are a good sign they allow employees to work remotely; Desktop computers are not.
