In this video, Sara Sutton Fell talks about growing Flexjobs with a 100% flexible, remote team. She shares interview practices and the advantages of establishing a company culture that promotes flexible work setups. Her team works from 23 home offices in different cities!
Sara Sutton Fell is the Founder & CEO of Flexjobs , a job board for part-time, virtual and generally flexible jobs. Sara’s story is very interesting and begins in 1995, when she, in her junior year in college, started jobdirect – a job board for entry level jobs. I thouroughly enjoyed reading this business week article, which charts the journey of her first venture. My favorite is the part where she and her partner had 15 laptops equipped in a spraypainted, recreational vehicle, which they drove through 43 campuses. The result was 5000 registered job seekers.
