Millennial Finds Work-Life Balance and Career Growth as a Remote Recruiter

One of the myths about working remotely is that it can limit your career. The focus of this week’s JobAdvisor success story is a woman who’s helping to dispel that myth with her shift to a great job as a remote recruiter.
Yannin P. was in search of a job that offered healthier work-life balance—a search that led her to us. Through her search on JobAdvisor, Yannin found a work-from-home job that’s a great fit for her. She was hired by PhysAssist Scribes, a transcription company that works with hospitals, outpatient clinics, medical groups, academic facilities, and other healthcare organizations.

In Search of a Healthy Balance Between Career and Life

A resident of Orlando, Florida, Yannin’s search for flexible work was fueled by a desire to find a better rhythm between the demands of a career and the activities she wanted to pursue outside of work—not to mention saving money by working from home.
“I had been wanting a flexible job for some time that would allow me work-life balance in a role I felt allowed me to continue growing in my career,” Yannin said. Her new remote job, she said, “will allow me to save money on transportation expenses and give me time to focus on extracurricular activities to maintain overall health and wellness.”

Better Focus on Family and Finances with Remote Work

Responding to questions from JobAdvisor as part of our weekly job search success series, Yannin self-identified as a millennial/gen Y member. She wrote about how working remotely has not only given her time to focus on her health, but has provided a number of other great benefits.
Her savings on transportation, for example, will help her “reach financial goals,” Yannin wrote. Plus, she said her full-time, remote job is inspiring her “to network with others in a non-conventional matter.” Making the most of networking is a smart strategy for all job seekers, and people who work from home can network not only to build career contacts, but to forestall the possible isolation that sometimes come with remote work.

Inspiring Insights for Other Job Seekers

“The more work you put into refining your resume and applying to as many opportunities you feel are suitable, the more results you will get,” Yannin advised, adding, “it took me two months of membership and continued motivation during the application process.”
Yannin said that tailoring her resume and cover letters (a well-advised tactic) was extremely helpful in her job search. And given her success, she said, investing in a FlexJobs membership paid off. “I would definitely say the price is worth it,” she wrote.
The overall benefits of remote work also have proven worthwhile, Yannin said. Her career shift “has allowed me to learn that a flexible job pushes me to work harder and more efficiently. This is the type of work environment that best fits my personality and skills.”
