To help job seekers find these opportunities, Glassdoor has identified the top 10 jobs with the most flexible work arrangements in his latest report, “The 50 Best Jobs in America for 2022.” According to research by Glassdoor, the best careers offer many job opportunities, high job satisfaction, high earning potential, and flexibility.

Most tech companies introduced remote or hybrid models even before the pandemic, FlexJobs career coach Toni Frana told CNBC Make It. But there are other industries adopting flexible policies at a rapid pace, she adds, including marketing, human resources and customer service, to attract talent in a tight job market.

“It’s a perk that employees really care about — and companies recognize that to be competitive, they need to offer flexible working hours,” he says.
