    Should I take a part time position that pays more, with the same benefits?

    In the final stages with a firm that is offering a higher salary with part time hours.

    I get all the benefits but less hours which is appealing but just wondering if this would prove a problem in the future if I were to look for a full time job again.

    Nobody cares about how many hours a week the job was, but the experience, level of responsibility,etc. If you work 30 hours of 50 hours - number of hours does not have an impact

    I've never had an interviewer ask me if a previous position was full time or part time. They just wanted to know tenure and job responsibilities along with what I had personally accomplished while in the position.

    I think you'll be fine.

    Sort of vague which I can understand. Maybe consider whether this is in line with your career first.

    If you have to ask overall... something probably isn't right.

    What's holding you back?

    All depends on the industry you are in.
    And other factors.

    Would you be moving into a higher position ? Assuming so because higher pay?
    Is it to further your career? And actually the best person for the job if thatís the case?

    Or are you going for a position that simply pays more but not the field you want to pursue?

    You tell us! Because how can we know if it will help or hinder with no information given?

    If it's part time hours, what will you be doing with that extra time? I think an interviewer would be impressed if you used that time to take courses, to further educate yourself. With this covid pay stuff....a lot of employers are taking notice because they know most are abusing it...especially students. Why work when you can get paid to sit on your ass, attitude is what employers will be looking at.

    In my field it would affect it and I factored that in when I went back part time a few years ago (my other part time job is mommy LOL). I know if I ever want to do full time I will have to explain why I chose part time.

    I hope it works for you. Every company is different. At my company, permanent, full time work has better job security in the long run.

    You don't need to describe job experience as part time or full time, so that's irrelevant. Would the work itself benefit your experience?
