Have you ever been stuck in choosing between getting a full-time job or several part-time jobs to achieve the lifestyle that you want? Going to a regular 9-5 job can leave us almost always too drained to do anything more than hit the sack when we get home, but it’s not so bad because of the benefits and stability that we get unlike with part-time work or with starting out a business or a passion project.
However, if you’d like to have more time in your hands (if long weekends are your thing), then you’d be happy to know about these full-time jobs in Singapore that would need you to only show up four days or less in a week:
