There is no doubt that the job market has been challenging in recent tim
es. It has also led to changes in the way we work. One of the main changes that have been noticed is that there are more part time workers now than there were a few short years ago. Many people are taking on part time jobs if they are unable to find full time ones. Part time jobs can sometimes lead to full time positions. Some people decide to work two part time jobs instead of one full time one, depending on their availability and needs.
Part time work can be found in many sectors of business, including retail, hospitality and other areas. You may even decide to work for yourself on a part time basis in the hope of building up your own business. There are many different options and opportunities within the part time sector of the job market.

The good news is that lots of businesses need IT workers, and they may be hired on an employed or freelance basis. This also brings up the opportunity to be your own boss if you are so minded.
These are just a few of the careers that hold great promise for 2012. But there are plenty more listed elsewhere on this site. Whichever one you aim for it could lead to a successful year ahead.
