Is working 2 part-time the same as working 1 full-time job despite I'm happier in working 2 part-time jobs rather than dragging my emotions and feeling stress at a full-time job?

My savings in my emergency funds are going down. From 18k to 10k and I feel like I have to do something lucky. I’m 26 yo and below, hence I opened a jumpstart account with Stan chart. However, should I find a full-time job? And if yes, I do need help to get one full-time job :) Thanks Seedly in advance!

    Yes in terms of salary, sometimes working 1 full-time job is the same as working 2 part-time jobs. However, as a lot of answers here already stated a full-time job comes with medical insurance, annual paid time-off, and the employer may pay tax and CPF for you.

    I wanna share with you that if you think a job that is very stressful, it's probably not the career path that you should go with. You should redetermine your mission and your interests that will make you feel happy doing every day. If you think 2 part-time jobs bring enough money and free time for you to invest in more valuable assets in the future such as education, real estate, stock, or gold, you should go for that.

      Practical things to consider between part-time and full-time jobs:

      1. you might not enjoy full-time employee perks like medical insurance, annual paid time-off (but by law, you should also enjoy PTO based on your tenure with the employer)

      2. you might have to file for your own CPF and taxes

      other than that, I think it's largely the same!

      If you can juggle two part-time jobs and enjoy both of them more so than your full-time job, I don't see why you shouldn't do that! :)
