Money Makers: Lower Stress Jobs

Balancing a career and the demands of parenthood can be stressful, especially during the pandemic. FlexJobs recently surveyed more than 1,100 parents with children 18 or younger living at home and found that 60% of respondents have experienced burnout in the past year.


In a post-pandemic world, 61% of parents say they want to work remotely full-time, and 62% say they would quit their current job if they can’t continue remote work. 

FlexJobs cross-referenced its database with the online careers database O*Net (run by the U.S. Department of Labor) to compile a list of jobs for working parents to consider that are: 

  • lower stress (fall below 80 on the stress tolerance ratings)
  • marked as having a bright outlook (expected to grow rapidly in the next several years, or will have large numbers of job openings)
  • offer remote work options.

Thought this might be of interest! More here:
