Sure, if you work hard. But what happens when you have two 9:00 meetings that both companies want you to Skype in to?

I think it's fine ethically, but maybe not logistically.

If I don't see any movement on this by the end of 2Q2017, I'll throw in the towel.

And there are lots of people who work two or more low-wage jobs, but that's to make ends meet.

But even thinking about doing this actuarially is too stooped for words. JMO, of course.

Somewhat more serious answer (not sure why I'm bothering giving a serious answer here):

Most of my past employers have a policy against this. I have no idea how or if they enforce it.

Mine, too, darlin', but I was trying to think of a clever spin on it, like maybe, 'what would you do if you got a million offers?'


Yes, there's a fine line between clever and stupid.

If your goal is to make a boatload of money better to do really well at one job than half ass two jobs.
