Full-time work offers benefits, a dependable schedule, and stability, while part-time work offers flexibility and the freedom to work in various industries.
Neither one is objectively better than the other, but odds are that one of them is better for you as an individual.To discover which type of work our readers favored, we asked for your thoughts in a recent poll. Most of you, 62%, preferred full-time work, while 38% of you preferred part-time work.
It’s November, which means the holiday season is about to begin. Odds are you’ve already seen commercials and advertisements full of happy families joyfully carving turkey, co-workers chatting while wearing festive hats, and children politely opening presents.
Unfortunately, real life is often a whole lot more hectic than that. While Thanksgiving and Christmas can be delightful and full of happy memories, getting there can be a struggle, especially at work. You have to worry about requesting time-off, schedule changes when co-workers go on storybook vacations, buying gifts for work pals, and, of course, the frequently awkward company holiday party.
