Question How to manage 2 jobs? - June 10th 2016, 03:43 AM

Alright so I'm pretty close to starting a a second job. It would be from 11 PM to 7AM. Full time. I currently work part time during the day at around 15 to 20 hours per week. What do I set my availability times for the daytime job? And how do I not kill myself doing so? Thanks (:

The biggest thing is to make sure you get enough sleep in between shifts. If you're working until 7AM every morning, you probably don't want to start another 4 or 8 hour shift at 8. Set yourself as available for the afternoon shifts on your day job and then you'll have mornings free to sleep. Even if you only work 4-hour shifts you'll still get about the same amount of hours there a week.

I agree with Kate- you definitely want to have time to sleep, so it's best that you set your availability to afternoon, as you can rest in the morning.

As Kate and Holly pointed out, the most important thing is making sure that you're able to get enough rest between both jobs. If you start depriving yourself of sleep, you won't be able to give 100% at either job. It might take some trial and error to figure out a balance that works for you, but I would recommend leaving some free hours after you get off the full-time job or before you start it. That's entirely dependent on what you think works best for you, as well as the hours of operation at your daytime job. Doing that will give you a consistent time that you are able to catch up on your rest which, as I said, will end up being incredibly important for your performance and your overall wellbeing.
