Yes. I work full time for a hospital and part time teaching online for a local university. I don't really need the extra money, but I don't mind having it. Mostly, I really appreciate having full access to the university's library.
The 2nd job is also my "back-up plan" in case something happens to my hospital job -- and might provide me a nice way to "ease into retirement" when the time comes.

I don't now, but I have in the past. After my divorce, I worked a f/t & a p/t job so I could keep my house.
When I retire (hopefully no later than 2018; if there is a major down turn in the stock market, I'll probably have to keep working), I'll still work p/t with my current employer, and p/t at the YMCA as a spin instructor.
The Y has offered to pay for the certification. I'm already making playlists!!! How silly is that?

I'm one of the 44 million. I have a day job and a part time job working as a personal trainer. I'll bet there are plenty of Spark peeps who work more than one job for the extra money or personal pleasure.
