The most in-demand flexible jobs were listed by FlexJobs, a job search website specializing in telecommuting, freelance, part-time, and other flexible work opportunities. Nursing ranked as the top search.
“When job-seekers come to FlexJobs, they have over 50 career fields to search from,” said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “It's interesting to see that the positions job-seekers are searching for are also generally compatible with the types of flexible positions that are the most abundant.”
The positions job seekers searched for the most over the course of the year include:
- Data entry
- Java developer
- Project manager
- Customer service
Currently, the cities that have the most positions available in these fields are New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Denver, Cleveland and Providence, R.I.
“The days when people worked exclusively from their desk in an office setting are already a thing of the past as most professionals check email, make calls and access documents from mobile devices or personal computers,” Fell said.
The most popular job search terms were compiled with data from job seeker keyword queries run between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2013, on FlexJobs.com.
