    Hello @mbrenneman,

    Is there an option to work part-time? I've been looking for various jobs here on the forum and there're practically few variants of part-time work. Though, I've been considering only the nearby places so far. But I guess I will need to reconsider the decision to stay in Woburn.
    I was a chemist-optician at Clear View Eye Associates (working mostly on chemistry hw research tasks). Will there be an opportunity to use and develop my chemist skills in Maui Jim Sunglasses?

    Thank you,
