Job Sharing: A partnership between two people to share the responsibilities of one full-time position.
Q: WHY SHOULD I JOB SHARE?
People choose to job share for a variety of reasons. Some choose to job share due to a change in family. This might include becoming a new parent, getting married, or becoming a caregiver to aging parents. Other reasons include working a reduced workweek prior to retiring or returning to the workforce from family or medical leave. Others job share while they are continuing education on an advanced degree or simply because they want a life that’s not bounded by their jobs.
Job sharing allows you to separate your work and personal life so you can be your absolute best at both! Job share partners overwhelmingly express fulfillment working in a small team that brings two skill sets together for stronger results. Partners hold one another accountable and support one another in work and life. When it’s the right fit, job sharing can be life- changing for your career growth and personal life.
