Help me figure out a new part time work schedule

I am going back to work, after a year of maternity leave, as an architectural designer in November and would like to work part time, mostly from home. My boss and office is quite flexible about me deciding my own hours in the future. Trying to figure out how to maximize time spent at work while reducing stress & commute times in order to balance home & work life. I also have questions about holiday pay for part timers. (Alberta Canada). Lots more below. [more inside]

3D Modeling: Part-time? Contract? Freelance?

Can professional 3D Modelers work part-time? On a contract basis? Freelance? We are considering it as a hypothetical career when my partner returns to the work world, but we would like a flexible schedule so that we can still provide plenty of care for our primary school age daughter. [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]

How to find part-time fulfilling jobs

I'm looking for a new job. I've been a library assistant for years and I'm tired of the stultifying atmosphere and conservative coworkers. This is partly made worse by my current work environment which I've loathed ever since I moved like 2 years ago. It just so conservative and small-minded, the kind of place where someone finishing the milk without replacing it would be the source of recrimination and speculation for weeks. [more inside]

Can you start Monday?

I've been offered two jobs. They both seem to be stuck in administrative office hell and I'm waiting around for them to actually give me any hours of work. I've had a paper job offer in my hand for over a month for one job, and a couple of weeks for the other job. I've been to inductions and initial training for both the jobs, so it's not like a vague verbal job "offer" that someone's changed their mind on. Both jobs are with local authorities, so they are big, legitimate organisations rather than small-time outfits. When do I stop chasing, and what should I do in the meantime? [more inside]

Help me brainstorm ideas for a part time, tech-ish job

Quick summary: I was an electrical engineer for a bunch of years, got burned out on the corporate world, and became a massage therapist. I really like it but after nine months of sussing out how it all works, what I'm good at, and what I'd like to do, it's going to be a multi-year task to get the job and income I am looking for.

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]

Going back to a part-time job -- How do I get through this?

I'm in my mid-twenties with big career dreams and a history of underemployment and emotional struggles. In order to get back on track, I need to go from being unemployed back to a part-time service job that I hate, and I need coaching on how to get through it with as little emotional agony as possible. I'm estimating that I'll be in the job for four months. More snowflake details inside. [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?

I wanna work part-time! Wah!

I've come to realize that maybe the key to my mental health is finding a situation where I only have to work 20-30 hours a week (supplementing income with an at-home gig). Are there fields where jobs like that are more common? In applying to such jobs, should I specify in my cover letter that I would like to work part-time, or does that just highlight what a lazy bum I am? [more inside]

Best way to learn French in my spare time?

Hi everyone, I am a 24 y/o English native about to start a PhD in London. During the next 3 years, I would very much like to begin learning French alongside my doctoral studies, and I am interested in finding out the most effective and efficient way of going about this. Realistically I will probably be able and willing to dedicate between one and two hours a day to studying French. I am interested in learning to both speak and write the language in equal measure. Any advice is much appreciated.
