Dear Experts, I'm lucky enough to be employed 32 hours a week, and on top of that, I LOVE my job. But unfortunately, it's only marginally related to my dream career path, which I'm not about to give up on. I do want to stay in this position until graduate school. So I decided to seek out a part-time internship, developing skills I believe will set me apart from my peers when I finally apply to school. It's entirely home-based, and I will in no way compromise my first job for the internship. I wanted to know what my obligations are to my first job? Should/Must I tell them about the new position? I feel like I'm cheating on them! Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#439 If it won't compromise your primary job, go for it. Just be aware of who's *paying* you and don't jeopardize that. (@EmilyBennington) Q#439 If it doesn't interfere and is not against any type of non-compete agreement, go for it! Good luck! (@beneubanks) Q#439 You don't have any obligation to tell them, unless it's specifically written into your contract (re: other jobs). (@gradversity) Q#439 Depends on corp policy RE: moonlighting. If none, give honest day's work to both positions. Life outside primary work OK. (@DawnBugni) Q#439 As long as current job comes first, no reason to tell them. If internship ever impinges, have to tell. (@juliaerickson) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
