I'm considering dropping out of the fourty-hour work week for personal reasons. I'd like to look for jobs where I can work thirty hours instead, but most positions are either full-time (fourty hours) or part-time (twenty hours). Is it acceptable to be interviewed for full-time positions and make it a point that I'm looking for thirty hours instead?
How do I argue for a 3-day, 30 hour workweek? asks this problem from an intern's perspective, but I'm a full-time software developer that also wants a thiry-hour week- not necessarily only three days though. Four is fine.
Workplace Effects of Working almost full time is a great question that asks how and what would change when switching from full-time to part-time within the same company. While that might be a choice at my current company, I'd like to keep my options open in case they say no.
