Would you prefer to work part-time or job share or even take a year or two off from work if you believed it would not hurt your resume?
I’m just curious because since so many people are unemployed, it could really benefit a lot of people if those who prefer part-time could do it and still make a good hourly wage.
I also wonder if a cultural shift towards people not being penalized for wanting to take a break from work would help. Those who can afford to live without working, it might be someone who saved a lot or it might be a spouse. If it is a spouse with the excuse of children I think might be getting better that employers are less negative about taking some years off, but what if you don’t have children? Does the workplace judge taking a few years off? I think it does a lot of the time, depending on the position.
Do you think these things coud help the unemployment problem?
