Career Centers Ansonia CT

I am an event planner in Ansonia at an upscale entertainment boutique. The job offers great perks and salary but does not give me enough time with my 4 year old daughter. How do I find a job that is exciting and equally rewarding that would free me up for my family?

Less Hours, More Me Time

Q: I am an event planner at an upscale entertainment boutique. The job offers great perks and salary but does not give me enough time with my 4 year old daughter. How do I find a job that is exciting and equally rewarding that would free me up for my family?

 

Personal self-assessment and understanding what would equate to “equally rewarding” for you is the first step in the process. While it is possible to find a job that will create more time and flexibility, it is important to recognize you may have to forfeit some of the perks and/or salary to support your desired schedule. Before thinking about changing jobs altogether, find out if your current employer will support a flexible work arrangement or has a job-sharing program. Typically, this information will be detailed in the company Employee Handbook or through information provided by the Human Resources Department.

If your company does not support flexible work arrangements, start researching other companies with such programs. Many companies understand that work-life balance is critical to employee retention and offer flexible work schedules or job sharing programs.

Understanding your options and the potential compromises you may have to make are critical before having any discussion with your boss. Once you have completed your research and are comfortable with the options and potential outcomes, you will be better positioned to create harmony in your career and personal life.
