Which job should you choose?
Fulltime work isn’t for everyone. Some workers are at a point in their lives where they want to spend more time with their families and less time at the office. Others need to be able to balance taking care of children or sick relatives with earning a paycheck.
For those looking for something different than the traditional 8-to-5, part-time work can be a great option.
Last month we conducted a poll asking voters what type of part-time work they would consider.
Professional/office position came in first with over 27% of the votes, followed by data entry with 21%, and customer service/call center in third with 17% of the votes.
Other results included:
- Food service: 8.5%
- Warehousing/assembly line: 7.4%
- Retail industry: 6%
- Other: 3.5%
- Choices included house cleaning, working from home, and quality engineer
- Taxi/ridesharing driver: 1%
- I will not consider part-time work: 1%
What does this mean?
For much of our audience, part-time work is a great choice for later in life. Industrial positions are harder to do, so desk jobs become attractive. Taking a few hours to work behind a cubicle or in a call center is worth it to be able to spend time with your family.
