Freelance to full-time: how to prepare

After finishing my master's this summer, I'm returning to full-time employment in a couple of weeks. The problem is that I've been freelancing for nearly a decade and haven't worked on-site regularly in almost four years. What should I be doing now to prepare for such a major change in my work situation? [more inside]

So confused/indecisive about work and career as a mom

I have worked part time since my son was born six years ago. He is now in 1st grade and gets home around 3 p.m. on the bus. I am thinking that it's time for me to go back to work full time for several reasons, but I am agonizing over my decision and it's driving me crazy. [more inside]

How to deal with an opinionated, overbearing mom (re my kid & childcare)

My mom has many, many opinions on how we are caring for our son (from what we give him for breakfast to the chores he should have, ugh), and she loves to share them. All the time. Especially in emails (joy). Here's the situation: I am considering going back to work full time but I am sure my mom will voice her displeasure. [more inside]

How do I convince my employer to let me go from full-time to part-time?

I plan on leaving my current job to pursue making art for a living before summer is out. This means my wonderful, supportive wife and I will be dependent on her salary alone until I can get all that sweet, sweet art lucre flowing. This will be a sustainable situation, but won't necessarily be an ideal one. I'd like to attempt to ask to go from full-time salaried to part-time salaried, for some added financial peace of mind. I am not sure how to best approach my manager about this. [more inside]

extended part time job becomes full time

I've had my current job for 7 years, working anywhere from 20-30 hours per week. (20 when I started, 30 a year later, and now we're down to 28 so they don't have to give me insurance because of the ACA.) Although I am not celebrating quite yet, it looks like full time is finally going to happen. Can I negotiate? [more inside]

My employer increased my hours but is not giving me benefits

I've been working as a part time employee for awhile but recently my hours have been increased for some special projects. I've been working 30-40 hour weeks. I do not get health insurance or any other benefits because I am not considered a full time employee. Are they required to give me benefits at some point? How should I approach this with them? I'm in the US. [more inside]

Great job or great organization?

I have been working at two nonprofits for about 6 months, and they're both now offering me full time positions. One is a really fun job at what can be a very frustrating organization. The other is a ho-hum job at a great organization. I'm torn. [more inside]

How can I work full time from home and take care of a baby?

I am a 32 year old female and have a full-time job. I've been working from home for 6 years now. My boyfriend and I are talking about marriage and having a baby. We're trying to figure out if it's going to be possible for me to still work full-time from home while also raising a baby. I found a lot of articles about it being possible to cut back on hours or work part-time only, but I don't want to do that (insurance and financial reasons). He works full-time as well and not from home and we want to try to avoid day care (or at least use it minimally). Has anyone ever successfully done this? If so, I'd love to know how. What was good/bad about it?

To work full time or not...

I currently work 20 hrs./week at a local nonprofit in field "XYZ." My husband works full time (8-6, usually), and we have a 2-year-old son who goes to my parents' house while I'm at work (3 days a week). However, yesterday I was contacted about a full-time job that's very appealing, and I don't know whether to pursue it. [more inside]

Is having a full-time job while attending college a good thing?

Hired in 2 years ago as part-time help, promoted to key-holder, and now offered to opportunity to go higher up. Is a job promotion and the increased pay that comes with it worth delaying the amount of time it takes to complete post-secondary education? Really making money and going to school, are they compatible/desirable? How would taking a salaried job affect financial aid available to me? [more inside]

Making Money at Music

MusicianFilter: The other day, a buddy of mine and I were having a bizarre conversation about musicians and perceived success. We started joking around, supposing that, say, En Esch from KMFDM/Slick Idiot really works at Kinko's in Joliet, using the assumed name "Benny." But that got us thinking - at what point are (established/presumably successful) recording artists able to move from their day jobs into full-time musician mode? Or what happens when they move back? And, additionally, if they are still pulling down day jobs, what are some good examples (apart from session musician, studio tech, etc)?
