Guest Author - Reshma Vyas

Having a part-time clerical job is a great way to earn extra money, take on varied and challenging work assignments and learn new skills. But clerical and administrative support jobs which have historically defined a critical segment of the employment market and provided foray into middle-management has been steadily shrinking.

And, some employers also offer health insurance along with other perks to part-time employees!
