Default Two jobs at the same time

Is it possible?

40 hours to each job. Both jobs telecommuting. No non-compete agreement.

I think you should start by making an honest list of the drawbacks of this idea.

What if both jobs want some deadline at the same time?

Even if one does find out about the other, you will still have the other. Unless they report to the other.

And is it anything illegal, no? Not even sure if its unethical.

If you're completing all your projects on time, I don't see where the issue is. In fact, thats what contractors do all the time.

Do you also want to lose both jobs at the same time?

Put in extra hours and complete both the project.

Investment Bankers work more than 80 hours. 70+ hours are not uncommon.

Possible? Maybe.

Prudent? No.

If the goal is to work yourself to death but make a boatload of money, why not go into consulting?
