Part time work (def): A part-time contract is a form of employment that carries fewer hours per week than a full-time job.
That’s it. That’s what defines a part-time job.
But in the real world - here what the definition often means:
Part time work (def): A crappy poorly-paid job where you have to jam too much work into too little time.
Somewhere along the line, part time work stopped meaning work that is part time. And started meaning work that is part-time, badly paid and under appreciated.
It sucks. It’s not right. And I have a plan for fixing it.
Here is my ultimate guide for getting great, interesting and well paid part time work.
Ready? Let’s go.
In less than 28 days from today you could be signing an employment contract starting your dream part-time job...at your dream salary...for your dream company. Its all yours with a little bit of know-how
(This may be the weirdest story about how a course started you'll hear today...)
I’ve been a lover of words, since I picked up my first copy of The Far Away Tree and I am a professional writer, so when a friend of mine named Andrea hit that one bad day of work too many I guess I was a logical place to turn.
She turned up on my doorstep with a bottle of wine and a dog-eared c.v. and a plea for help.
Of course, she'd talked to me before about how much she hated her job but that night was the first time that I realised how much it was actually hurting her.
You see, she had a boss who constantly undermined her.
He corrected her in meetings. He mansplained. He took her ideas and passed them off as his own. He regularly loaded her up with work late in the day that had to be done by 9 a.m even though (or maybe because?) he knew she had kids and football training and... you know...dinner.
Now I met Andrea when we were both at uni. Between you and I, she ran rings around me and in not much longer than it took me to get one degree - she got herself two (one of them with honours).
This lady is smart. This lady is talented. But that night, sitting at my kitchen table, she didn't feel smart and talented. Dozens of small barbs over the years had made her doubt herself and made her feel small and scared.
And, as she said to me "it's part-time (sort of). I need that flexibility...."
She'd been half-heartedly job hunting for years. She'd periodically make an appointment with a fancy recruiter in the city. Get her hair done and go put on her fabulous face for an hour. And they'd say nice things and then she'd never hear from them again (seriously don't get me started on that game....)
Or she'd apply online for a job that looked good. Again, it would take her a whole day to rework her c.v. and she'd never even get an acknowledgement email.
She felt stuck and stupid. She knew a job shouldn't be so soul sucking. So hard. She just didn't know what to do next.
So of course I agreed to help.
Didn’t seem too hard.I knew she was awesome at her job. I just had to write about it. Right?
In less than half a bottle of Cab Sav, we realised that job searching had changed since either of had last looked. And that getting part-time work was even harder than full-time.
It had changed a lot.
Here’s the questions were asking ourselves (minus the expletives that we sprinkled in quite liberally).
“Are c.v.s even relevant anymore? Cover letters?”
“What the hell is an electronic c.v. and why would I want one?”
“Which job site is better; Seek, Jora or one of the new fangled ones that appear every day?”
“Has anyone in the history of the world ever actually got a job through LinkedIn?”
“If they did, how the hell did they do it?
“And how did they not let their boss know about it before they got a new job?”
I’m not gonna lie. It was a long night. (And a second bottle may or may not have been opened…)
But step by step we figured it out.
Crazy as it sounds, in less than 3 weeks, Andrea got headhunted through (wait for it….) LinkedIn and she is still at that job today. It started off at 20 hours a week then moved to 25 (her choice - not theirs.)
She looks awesome. She smiles a lot. She drinks less....
So then I tried the same techniques on myself and …. it worked. I got my dream job writing video scripts for Expedia.(You can see my work here and here…..)
And since then, I’ve been working one on one with clients and getting amazing results. Turns out you can follow a strategy to get the attention of the right people. And get an awesome job you love.
But here’s the thing….
I work full time (at a job I adore). I have 3 kids (who I also adore) and (occasionally) I have a life. I can only help a small number of women one-on-one. And yet I see so many clever, talented, fabulous women who are settling for crappy jobs just because no one has shown them how to use the latest tools to get a new job they love.
So I have put together everything I've learned in a step-by-step package - the kind I wish Andrea and I had that day she turned up on my doorstep with desperation in her eyes.
I am 100% sure that if you follow the action steps this training will work for you.

A Letter from Kathy
Like millions of women around the world I was deeply moved by the women's marches all across the US when Trump took office.
And my feelings are perfectly reflected in the eyes and the sign of this woman (I've censored it a little to make it work appropriate).
If you've been following my story for a little while, you'll know that one day, I decided that I was tired of being underpaid. I knew the job search landscape had changed. I knew about LinkedIn and about online c.v.s but I had no idea how to make any of it work for me.
So I researched it. I interviewed dozens of experts. I hired specialists to help me master certain parts of the process.
And you know what? It worked. I am now a well-paid travel writer doing my dream job and getting paid more than double what I used to get.
I gamed the system, using the tools that are available to level the playing field.
And now that's what I do to help out other women. Let me show you how to get ahead. How to build your career. And how to get the salary that you love.
