It’s been quite a few years, and I’m shocked that this is not yet a popular way of doing business! When my friend decided not to return fulll time from maternity leave, I was hired to JOBSHARE with her. We literally SHARED the job. She worked M,T,W and I worked TH,F. She got 3/5 of the job benefits, (personal, vacation days) I got 2/5. There were challenges - we had to make sure, at all costs, not to allow anyone or any assignment to suffer because we had not been there to attend a meeting, etc. This required very detailed notes and handover meetings. Other than that - it was the BEST job I’ve ever had. Everyone loved seeing me, because it meant the week was almost over! We both got to be mommy for long, four or five day stretches - then dress up and go to NYC to be a grownup - all while sharing the best and the stress of the job. I would have stayed in this job forever - tragically my friend lost her husband and had to take the job back full time. This is an incredible way to have it ALLmost.
