When it comes to job sharing, most people have one big question: “How?”
How do you make it work? How do you find a job share partner or a company that has a job share program? How do you convince your company it’s a good idea?
Job Share Connect is the answer. We find your ideal partner in terms of skills and personality. We then connect you with companies who are looking to hire and retain top talent. If you love your current job but are struggling to work a traditional schedule, we can help you propose job sharing so you can stay.
First things first, though. Read the questions below and determine whether you’re in a situation where job sharing might help you balance your career with life’s challenges.
Is Job Sharing Right for You?
Job sharing isn’t for everyone. Many people still want or need a full-time position. However, 40+ hours a week isn’t the best solution for people who have other obligations or career objectives. Sound familiar? Then job sharing may be the perfect solution for you.
Are you a caregiver?
Balance your family and career.
You may have small children. You may have aging or sick family members. Like more and more people, you may have both. In years past, these kinds of responsibilities required you to choose between career and family. Not with job sharing. It lets you care for those in need without working a traditional 8-5 schedule, or temporarily leaving the workforce and creating a gap in your résumé.
Are you re-entering or exiting the job market?
Ease into your transition.
Jumping into or out of a career is highly disruptive — for you and employers. Job sharing lets you make career changes gradually, instead of suddenly. This can help you transition back into the workforce after spending time outside of it. Job sharing can also help you prepare for retirement without needing to make an abrupt exit.
Are you earning a degree?
Advance your career without leaving it.
Whether you’re an adult learner working to earn a bachelor’s or you’re a professional earning an advanced degree for your chosen industry, job sharing can provide the time you need to dedicate to your studies. The best part? You get the time you need without losing time in your work history. You also gain an opportunity to apply your education to your job as you learn.
Are you working on a big idea?
Find the time to make it a reality.
If you’re an entrepreneur who’s creating your next business opportunity, you may need more than just nights and weekends to establish yourself. By job sharing, you can maintain your current position while taking the steps necessary to build the foundation of your future and follow your passion.
