Physical therapy assistant, and occupational therapy assistant, are listed among the top jobs projected to grow at least 25% in 2018 that also come with flexible work options, according to FlexJobs, a search engine for telecommuting, flex, part-time, and freelance jobs.
Physical therapy assistant—number 3 on the list—offers a median salary of $56,610, according to 2016 data.
Occupational therapy assistant—number 7 on the list—offers a median salary of $59,010.
“With hiring practices steadier in the US throughout 2017, workers are becoming more confident in their employment options, and ready to take advantage of a stronger job market to find a flexible job that better suits their lives,” says Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs, in a media release.
“In fact, the number of people who say they’ve quit a job due to lack of flexibility has nearly doubled from 17% in 2014 to 32% in 2017, indicating just how important work flexibility has become to job seekers across all generations and demographics.”
