These days, just about everyone is looking for ways to make their career more flexible. Telecommuting is on the rise as more and more employees try to balance their work and home life in a meaningful way.

Companies are becoming more willing to let their employees set their own hours, enabling them to get their jobs done on their own schedules without imposing arbitrary workday guidelines.

In addition, the workplace itself is becoming more flexible, with jobs entailing dynamic responsibilities not limited to just one area. With all this in mind, we have decided to take a look at some of the most flexible careers for 2014, in part to inspire you to choose greater flexibility from your job and in your life.

1. IT Project Manager

Being an IT project manager can be a stressful career, with constant deadlines looming: it can seem like you are always scrambling to put out one fire or another, or to get one aspect of the project in line with the others.

That hard work has its rewards, however, and for the average IT project manager these include a high salary (almost $100,000 per year) and a high degree of job flexibility. Over a quarter of project managers are able to work from home, according to one poll.

In addition, when the project is not pushing up against one of the aforementioned deadlines, the project manager generally is able to set their own hours.
