Im currently working part time, but im thinking of finding a new job. The problem is, there are only full time jobs for what im working with. My primary reason for working is to have something to do and some kind of sosial life. (dont actually need the salary, but dont want to work for free)

Would there be some way to apply for full time positions and ask to only work part time? Would companies even consider to hire a person part time when they need full time?

Edit Working as software developer today. 7 years experience as a developer. 12 years work experience as server operator. two years with sale.

I know i can find many "work from home, part time jobs" but thats not what im looking for

Something like "I know you are looking for a full time worker, but would you consider part time?" might work. Make sure you ask when you initially contact them so that you aren't wasting their time and yours.

Would companies even consider to hire a person part time when they need full time?

Very unlikely. If they were looking for part-time help, or would consider part-time help, they would almost certainly mention it in the job ad.

Your best bet might be to go through an agency. Make sure they understand how many days/hours per week you wish to work.

You may also with to contact former employers and mention your part-time availability.
