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.

If second job doesn't conflict, why inform? (@DeborahShane) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
