I've been unsuccessfully applying for jobs for several years now. I only manage to find a small number of jobs that both interest me and where I match the requirements. The vast majority of these never contact me at all. Every once in a while, I stumble upon one that looks really suitable for me and I get a little excited -- then I see it's only part time.

On some level, I know it would be unwise to leave a full-time job with benefits for a part-time job, but some days I am so completely fed up with my job that I don't care anymore. Assuming the salary of the part-time job was something you could manage, would anyone here consider doing this?

No. Even if I could afford to, I wouldn't want to give up my health insurance, vacation, holiday pay, etc.

I would consider it if I was going back to school to get another degree.
