If you are a job seeker, wage affects you most when taking a job. But sometimes, this priority brings you an unsatisfying job. So this is the time for you to list all your demands including income and the joy of work. You can work with a small pay cut in a flexible schedule. That’s the way many people do to balance their desire and reality.
If you are looking for jobs that have built in flexibility, there are quite a few options. Sometimes delivery jobs allow you flexibility as long as your deliveries are made by the end of the day. You can choose where to eat and who to chat with along your route, and as long as your packages are delivered, everything is fine. Another job that provides flexibility is Nashua property management or Manchester property management. If you are managing several buildings or locations, you will be on the road and in charge of your own time. As long as things continue to run smoothly, your employer will be happy regardless of your schedule.
Another option for flexibility is to speak with a potential or current employer about building flexible time into your schedule. Some companies call this flex time and they are happy to do it because it saves them money. You may still be paid for a full-week of work, but you are in the office less. This may mean working from home or working longer days and having a day off each week. Many offices find they run more efficiently by doing this. They can offer employees the chance to spend more time with their families, and when employees are happier and their quality of life increases, their work quality does so as well. If both the employer and employee can be happy with their situation, it makes for the best productivity for a company.
A final option for finding flexible work is to work the flexibility into your offer before accepting the job. When bargaining with a company for a better package, they may be reluctant to pay you what you are asking, especially during a tough economy. You can push for other perks though and a flexible schedule should be one of them. Flexibility does not cost a company any money, so if you would prefer to work four 10 hour days, there is no reason they should object to that if they want you on their team. You may also be able to ask them for the option of working from home a few times per week.
