  • When you have more than one job, it can be tricky deciding whether or not to tell this to your employers.

  • It may not be such a big deal with several part time jobs, but in some cases, it can be a more delicate subject.

  • If your jobs have schedules that change from week to week, it's probably best to talk with your employers about your other jobs.

  • This way, you can coordinate your various shifts and prevent them from overlapping or running too close to one another.

  • This can be especially important if one of your jobs has a strict schedule or requires you to occasionally stay late.

  • In some industries, you may encounter something called a non-compete clause.

  • This is a statement in a contract that prohibits you from working for competing employers.

  • They're mostly found in businesses dealing with creative work or sensitive information, but you may run into them in other fields as well.

  • If your contract does contain a non-compete clause, you shouldn't take a second job in a similar field or do anything that would violate this agreement.

  • If your employers were to find out about it, you would most likely be fired.

  • So, let's say that your jobs are on different days and that they don't have non-compete clauses.

  • If this is the case, you don't really need to discuss your other jobs with your employer if you don't want to.

  • Since they're not directly affecting one another, it's okay to not bring it up.

  • However, if you do decide to let your employer know, there's no need to make a big deal about it, that could make things awkward.

  • Instead, consider mentioning it in passing or working it into conversation.

  • But in most cases, talking about your other jobs isn't something you need to worry about.
