Stringing together two or more part-time jobs is a hot trend among today's young adults -- but could this trend be adopted by cancer survivors? No question, holding down multiple jobs (part-time or not) is a strain on your faculties, and if you're a cancer survivor you likely already have a lot of existing strain. So in order to determine if this is something that could work for you, there are four key steps to take:
- Gauge your energy level -- but think beyond it
- Get creative with the possibilities, but stay realistic
- Add up the pros and cons
- Find flexible companies
The bottom line is that you don't want to be taken advantage of by a company, so be sure to thoroughly investigate an opportunity before jumping in. And try to get creative with your arrangements.
