I'm transitioning from full-time employment to part-time employment. I'm going back to school for an advanced graduate degree and want that to be my main focus, but I still want to work. I have 7 yrs. of finance experience and over 20 years of professional work experience in various fields. My current job is too demanding and stressful for me to stay onboard while pursuing my degree, and I've already had that conversation with my boss, so I see that it's not a viable option.
I recently received an offer for a part-time bookkeeper position and I'm excited about the opportunity. It's closer to my home, I have the skills to do the position, it's a small office and the staff seemed happy and were very friendly. I met w/ the owner for the interview and we had a very interesting conversation about life in general, and I think that she is someone I can learn from and would work well with.
Besides the decrease in salary, hours, and benefits, what are some other things I should consider and negotiate before accepting the position?
