Today's guest is Sara Sutton Fell, CEO and Founder of FlexJobs.com.


The idea for FlexJobs came about in 2007 by Sara Sutton Fell, an experienced entrepreneur who at the time was pregnant with her first child. She had started looking at flexible work arrangements for herself, and discovered how challenging it was to find something (a) legitimate and (b) in-line with her career.
In her almost 15 years in high-tech (including as co-founder of entry-level job service JobDirect which was sold to Korn|Ferry International), Sara knew that good flextime and telecommuting positions did exist. So instead of giving up, she thought about it and realized that there was an opportunity amidst her frustration. Empowered by her passion for the idea and her previous experience in the job services industry, Sara decided to create what she had been looking for - a clean, professional, well-designed job site dedicated to providing only the best, most legitimate telecommuting, part-time, flextime, and freelance jobs. And of course, she started it from her home office!
We'll be talking about what kinds of telecommute jobs are available and how to get them, how to recognize and avoid scams and whatever else comes up.
