The Complete Guide to Job Sharing.
Hohn, Marcia D.
This booklet provides information on job sharing that resulted from the research and experience of the Merrimack Valley Job Sharing Project. An overview of the topic considers the need for job sharing, employer benefits, types of jobs shared, job division, benefits, employer costs and savings, financial considerations for job sharers, perspectives for the employer, and disadvantages to job sharing. The second section identifies places where job sharing is happening and the types of jobs involved. It presents comments from people currently sharing jobs and/or involved in their supervision to reflect the major advantages and disadvantages for both the employer and the employee. A description follows of the Merrimack Valley Job Sharing Project, an 8-month demonstration project in job sharing for 12 women of professional background. Information is provided on how the project started, goals and objectives, proposed and actual implementation, and conclusion and recommendations. The final section addresses finding a partner and developing functional resumes and joint functional resumes. Samples of resumes and a cover letter are included. (YLB)
