I'd eventually like to work part-time, but know next to nothing about actually making this happen.

when my mother returned to work, she worked p/t for the internal revenue service in our downtown. it was a great p/t job for her, she only worked tax season, she would get furloughed (sp) then return to the job every tax season thereafter.

that's funny, DH works in a call center environment but few, very few are p/t workers.

In order to qualify to be an adjunct, you usually need to have a master's degree with at least 18 graduate hours in the subject that you want to teach. For other positions, it depends. For example, our program coordinator for the fine arts center has only an associate's degree. Sometimes they are more interested in your skills than your degree. Check out the websites of 2-year and 4-year colleges near you to see what administrative/staff/faculty positions they have and what the qualifications are for those positions.

Make yourself indispensible at your job .. then show them on paper how you can do it in less time, or job share, or do part of it from home.
