What I liked and Did not Like about Remote.co
What I liked about Remote.co
- Like you do not have to pay a subscription fee to access the jobs
- (This is my guess) the competition for jobs will be less as fewer people will go to Remote.co.
More people will go to Flexjobs.com than Remote.co
Many job positions are listed on both Remote.co and Flexjobs.com.
When I searched for jobs on Remote.co, I was also able to find these same jobs on Flexjobs.com
What I did not like about Remote.co
- You may have fewer jobs listed on Remote.co than on Flexjobs.com
- You do not have an advanced search feature that allows you to make your search more focused
(You cannot search for job positions by Title field, for example)
Remote.co is a good website for finding remote work information and opportunities. I would recommend Remote.co.
