As some of you may know I am currently working two jobs while searching for a FT postion w/ benefits. One of the jobs I’m working is an office job in the marketing dept. I don’t really have much interest or background in marketing (I have a master’s in history), but my friend got me the job over the summer as a way to make some extra money while I was getting a SECOND master’s. I’ll try to keep this story as short as possible, but I have since decided to stop going to school (hated the program, waste of money, time, etc). I have not mentioned this to my boss yet. I have been considering asking them for a FT position. It’s not my “field”, but I’m comfortable here, everyone knows me and I would be completely happy working here… maybe not for the long haul, but a job is a job, and I’ve been part-time here since August. I don’t however have any other relevant experience aside from the fact that I’ve been a part-timer for a few months. Is it too ballsy to ask for a FT position? What would YOU do? I could use some advice and no one here has ever steered me wrong!
