When I started to get ready to get for work, my big name alphabet soup company did not have any part time positions for me. This was a bummer as we need the money. I'm in the same boat as a lot of families around here - my hubby makes (for example) $10 a month. Our bills add up to $11 a month. So I have to work, even though it looks as if I don't because most of my paycheck is extra (except of course, when we overspend --> December was a rough month with a Disney Trip, Christmas and birthdays for TWO of our children).
BUT in November they found a part time spot for me working for the group that writes and maintains the software for our company's help desk.
I love my new job!! LOVE LOVE LOVE. I work with great people, in a great location, with great flexibility in my schedule. AND I can work from home occasionally or to earn extra hours. And it is possibly one of the few true development positions in the world that is part time!
It is a perfect fit and I couldn't be happier!
