6 Jobs to Consider That Offer Flexible Scheduling

6 Jobs to Consider That Offer Flexible Scheduling
Posted By: Dixie Somers on November 28, 2022

Finding a job with flexible scheduling can be hard, especially in today’s gig economy. But don’t worry—there are plenty of jobs out there that offer flexible hours and schedules. Here are six jobs to consider if you’re looking for something that will fit your lifestyle.

Freelance Writer or Editor



If you have a knack for writing or editing, freelancing could be the perfect job for you. You can set your own hours and work from anywhere, as long as you have an internet connection and a laptop. Plus, there are lots of websites and platforms that make it easy to find freelance gigs. Just make sure to set boundaries so that your work doesn’t take over your personal life!

Virtual Assistant



Virtual assistants help business owners with tasks like customer service, data entry, bookkeeping, research, and more—all from the comfort of their own home. Most virtual assistant jobs require some kind of degree or certification, but once you get hired you can often negotiate flexible hours that will fit into your schedule.

Online Tutor



If you love teaching but don’t have time to commit to a full-time job in the classroom, online tutoring might be the right choice for you. Many online tutoring companies offer flexible scheduling options so that you can pick when and how often to work without committing too much time to it.



Plus, most online tutoring companies pay higher rates than traditional tutoring services—which is definitely something to keep in mind!

Customer Service Representative



Many customer service representative jobs now allow employees to work remotely from their own home offices. This means that they can set their own hours and work whenever they want—as long as they meet the minimum requirements set by the company. Working remotely also eliminates any commuting time associated with traditional customer service positions—which is always a plus.

Travel Agent



Travel agents help people plan vacations by arranging flights, hotels, tours, car rentals, etc., all while working remotely from home. They typically get paid commissions on the trips they book (instead of an hourly wage), which makes it easier to create a flexible schedule that works around other commitments like family or school. Plus, travel agents usually get access to discounted airfare and hotel rates—so who wouldn't want this job?

Truck Driver



Truck driving is an excellent job for those who want flexibility in their schedule. Drivers can choose to work part-time, full-time, or on a seasonal basis depending on their preferences. As long as they have the necessary licensure and experience, truck drivers can set their own hours and routes and drive anywhere in the country. Look for intermodal trucking jobs in your area.

Whether you're looking for something full-time or just part-time on the side, there are plenty of jobs out there with flexible scheduling options available. Freelance writing/editing, virtual assisting, online tutoring/teaching, customer service representative positions, and travel agent gigs are all great choices if you're looking for something with more freedom than a traditional 9-5 job offers. So what are you waiting for? Start exploring these options today!
