Dear Experts, I currently have a full-time job but I'm in desperate need of more money. So, I applied for a part-time/paid internship with a family-friend to help pay the bills. I really like my full-time job and would consider it a priority compared to the internship. With that being said, do I owe it to my manager to inform her of me taking on another line of work? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#490 I would check your contract first to ensure that you don't have a clause excluding second jobs. (@gradversity) Q#490 If your p-t internship does not interfere with full-time job, you probably do not need to explain to employer. (@keppie_careers) Q#490 A Full-time Job & Internship at the Same Time? Depends on: http://bit.ly/9lhSjH (@ravingredhead) Q#490 Reality is challenging. Do what you have to make your ends meet. If second job doesn't conflict, why inform? (@DeborahShane) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
