My girlfriend had to quit her last full-time job due to severe anxiety and burn-out. After taking some time off and taking therapy, she feels ready to start working again, preferably part-time (4/5 days, in Belgium).
She applied for an administrative job, thinking that the application would take at least a month longer. But they told her she could start next week. She forgot to ask for part-time possibilities because she was nervous.
She has an introduction first day on Monday. Is it ok to ask them if she can start part-time until she feels more confident to take on a heavier workload?
If yes, how would she go about asking this?
Thank you very much in advance.
