Achieving Work-Life Balance: Another Reason to Love a Job


Brie Reynolds works for a company that promotes remote and telecommuting jobs, so it's no surprise that her own job is a flexible one. And she loves it. Her submission is our selected pick of the week during our "I Love My Job" campaign in February that highlights the positive aspects of work.

We want to know why you love your job. Send us your "I love my job" story or submission through the end of February. Our selected submission each week -- like Brie's -- will receive a sweet treat and care package to share with coworkers.

Here is why Brie Reynolds, director of online content at Flexjobs.com, loves her job:

"I love my job because I know I'm helping people every day, both directly and indirectly, to find jobs that better fit their lives. We hear from people who need better work-life balance for many reasons (Among the reasons: They're caring for children or elderly parents. Their spouse is in the military. They live in a rural area without a lot of opportunity. Or even finding a better balance between work and life is important to them).

Within the content team, I get to write and produce career and job search advice that helps people become better job seekers, so they can land flexible jobs. I also love my job because I'm using the skills I love (writing, research, advising) every single day. 

My coworkers are way too much fun to work with. I get to work from home every day with flexible hours. Not having to worry about a daily commute means less stress and more time to spend with my family or cultivating new hobbies. I'm not so much a work-hard, play-hard kind of person. So I like to say my job lets me be a work-hard, relax-hard person."
