I am a full time software developer at a large company lets call it BigCompany (not the real name) and I would like to teach a few hours of computer science courses on the weekend at a community college total hours per month about 20.
The company that I work for BigCompany requires I disclose any outside business interests.
I would like to do the teaching because Ive done it before also while working a fulltime job elsewhere, I found it really fun, good way to practice my presentation skills and a good way to motivate me to code in my spare time.
Again all the hours would be on the weekend non business hours and it wouldn't be more than 20 Hours a month total. I know the dean and he is very flexible . If I had a work priority at BigCompany could easily get a replacement to teach that day at the college.
It is a small college so I dont see why it would be a conflict of interest or why they should be concerned with me doing it.
Sometimes at BigCompany I do have to do support outside of business hours but I dont think it will conflict with my teaching schedule.
I have been with the BigCompany about 5 months , am off probation and I did speak with HR and they didnt think this would be an issue.
Any thoughts or issues please let me know.
