Quite obviously, a part- time job is a job wherein an employee does not work full hours. Part-time employment has advantages and disadvantages which need to be carefully weighed when one is considering employment options. In a tough economic climate, many people are turning to part-time jobs as a method of getting extra income to make ends meet.
Typically, an employment announcement or job vacancy listing will indicate whether a position is full or part time, as the number of hours offered is important to both employer and employee.
A part time employee is required to work less number of hours than would be considered full time by the employer. Employees may work 35 hours a week or less, or work below a pre-determined amount of hours.
In the Philippine context, part time workers are mostly college students.
Working part-time is one of the more viable and sensible choices for both students and college graduates. All the experience which a student gains doing part-time work will definitely count when he or she finishes school. And even after graduation, if the new graduate is unable to compete with experienced and better educated candidates, part-time employment is a small but good start even while adding to ones resume.
Full-time jobs usually require about 32-40 hours per week and often include benefits such as health insurance and paid holidays and vacations. With a full-time job, you typically work eight hours a day, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Part-time jobs usually require less than 32 hours per week and often don’t include any benefits. With a part time job, you typically work four hours a day, from, say, 8:00 am to 12:00 noon. It goes without saying: less work, less income.
