Tjobs has been around for.ev.er. It was like the original teleommuting job search site, around for as long as I’ve can remember (15, 16 years?). Given the nature of Internet acquisitions, it makes perfectly good sense that FlexJobs, the new telecommuting job search site with more bells and whistles than tjobs every really had, has swallowed them up. Tjobs was a great idea before it’s time. FlexJobs just perfected it.
Here’s what FlexJobs notes on the tjobs site:
FlexJobs will be a great asset in your efforts to land the work at home job you want with:
- 9 times the job listings that Tjobs posted
- a larger staff to help with your job-finding needs,
and all the same efforts to provide true, legitimate work at home jobs and resources.
Tjobs’ goal during the past 16 years has been to establish a viable telecommuting workforce that businesses could rely upon to carry on their jobs from home, and ultimately to enable workers to reduce or even eliminate their commute, save all that waste in energy, and cut pollution.
We are proud that we’ve been able to contribute to the growth in telecommuting over these many years, however we have realized that it’s time for a change. As such, we are very happy to pass the torch to FlexJobs to help carry on the mission.
Definitely interesting news in the world of telecommuting! Here’s the official press release:
