  • Only you know your situation, options and priorities. We can't make up your mind for you.

    Part time jobs are there to get you through until a full time job come along or you are studying. Leaving one after a few days is something your boss will be used too.

No, quitting a part-time job to accept a full-time offer will not impact your future. Just be honest with your boss, and let him/her know as soon as possible.


Let your current boss know that you are taking off for the full-time position. Say something nice to them on the way out.

Do NOT write anything in your resume that you worked there for a few days. You don't include a few days work on your resume unless you were literally saving the world during that time interval.
