Do You Need an Easy Way to Get Your Boss to Let You Job Share?
You found it. With the Job Sharing Proposal Package, you can be ready with a proven proposal by tomorrow. (Without sacrificing sleep.)
The secret? Present an air-tight plan and proposal that details the employer benefits of your new job sharing arrangement.
Why a written proposal? Because a verbal request will get you a knee-jerk ‘no.’
But who has the extra time and energy to write a first-rate proposal from scratch? Good news: there's an easier way that saves you hours and effort.
Download It Today. Done By Tomorrow.
I downloaded [your Proposal Package]…and submitted it the same afternoon. The next morning, after a 10-minute discussion, [my manager] approved it. She even said, ‘You just addressed every single concern I had.’ This will allow me the flexibility and time I need…
Director of Development
The Job Sharing Proposal Package is...
Since putting WorkOptions.com online in 1997, I've equipped thousands of professionals in all 50 states and more than 35 countries with a proven template and planning guide. "Proven" means it gets approval for 9 out 10 people requesting flexible work. Why not be next? Pat Katepoo, Founder
Yet it's not for everyone.
Do you meet these three criteria?
To get the green light for a flexible work arrangement, aim to match the “approval profile” criteria:
1. You’ve worked for the same manager for at least one year.
2. You’re a reliable, trusted employee who meets or exceeds expected job performance.
3. You follow the detailed format of the template inside the Job Sharing Proposal Package.
Roughly nine out of 10 people who meet all three criteria get a ‘Yes’ to their request to job-share. I say this based on follow-up surveys, plus years (20+!) of customer feedback.
“Will it work for my job?”
Yes. Simply insert the specifics of your job and responsibilities into the proposal template.
“[It was] so easy to customize your format to meet my needs. The professional written presentation helped convince my boss. Thanks.” Luanne Cantor, Controller, The Physicians Computer Company, Vermont
You’ll also tweak the Schedule section to match what you want. Voilà! Your proposal is ready.
Why That Free Generic Proposal You Found Online Won't Work
Their skimpy outline suggests what to include but not what to say: “Describe the business case for your proposed flexible work arrangement.” That's it. You're stuck with composing all the specifics. But with the Proposal Package, the details are included in phrases that are both persuasive and professional.
I surfed for hours [and] while I found a lot of material, yours was the most in-depth. It was nice to see actual proposal examples.
Why Not Write It Yourself?
You probably could, but aren’t you busy enough? You can probably cook, too, but sometimes you want fast and convenient, right?
Skip the writing angst. With the fill-in-the-blanks format, you can turn out an impressive and persuasive proposal by tomorrow.
“...well worth the money...it saved me hours of drafts and redrafts...” Tina O'Brien, Associate Director, Alumni Relations, Seattle University.
I write proposals all the time, but this is so personal. I appreciated the guidance in how to discuss the issue in a professional way. (12 days later): My boss approved the revised schedule and I'm thrilled.
Director, Public Policy
Do You Work Harder or Smarter?
What's your time worth? First, figure your pay by the hour: Divide your full-time salary by two, then drop the extra zeros. For example, $60,000 = about $30 a hour.
Your hourly: $ _____ x number of hours to write a proposal from scratch = $_____
If you're a “work smarter” professional, you realize your time is too precious to zone out in front of a computer to write a proposal when it's already been done for you.
For a long time I wanted to [flex my schedule] but didn't know how to approach it. Your guidance was just the boost I needed to send me in the right direction. My boss was very impressed and approved it almost immediately even though it's never been done in this office before. I'm so excited...

Here's What You Get Inside Your Job Sharing Proposal Package
Click each tab for more details.
The Primary Proposal Template
The Job Sharing Proposal is organized into four major sections: Introduction, Purpose, Plan and Summary. The Plan is the core of your proposal.
• The Plan includes seven key aspects of your arrangement that you must include to satisfy your boss’s questions and concerns.
• The Plan succinctly spells out the arrangement in each of these seven professionally-crafted sections.
• The Plan weaves in persuasive words and compelling phrases, a distinct advantage of the Work Options Job Sharing Proposal over a generic one.
• The Plan is where you simply type in custom information based on your situation and job. (A job restructuring exercise helps you with that step.)
This proven combination of solid format + personal edits makes the proposal effective in getting the boss's approval of a job sharing arrangement.
A Completed Sample Proposal
Done by a prior Job Sharing Proposal Package user who received approval, the sample allows you to make minor edits to get a virtually instant end product.
Scripted Replies to Common Objections
“We’ve never done this before.” OR “It’s not our policy.”
“If I let you do it, everyone else will want to do the same.”
“Why do you want to do this anyway?”
“Your type of job can’t be turned into a job sharing arrangement.”
Be ready with a confident reply for each of these (plus two more), included inside your copy of the Job Sharing Proposal Package.

“No more hitting the decks running. We have time to make a nutritious meal, practice guitar, study for tests, read, or just relax before bed at 8:30 PM. Thank you for a great product.” Beth Palmer, VP, The Quest Business Agency, Sugar Land, TX
I'd do anything for my kids.

For Skeptics Only: Yeah, Right.
“I had seen your website before but thought: ‘Yeah right, like I am going to pay for some proposal sight-unseen!’ [But then it] seemed like a pretty good investment if I could get what I needed…
Your proposal outlined exactly what I needed. Within an hour I had plugged in my specific changes and handed it to my boss (this was about two weeks ago). This morning I spoke to him and he has agreed to all that I requested! I am ecstatic!
I'm certain that the proposal is what convinced him that I was serious and put it into a format he could discuss with the higher-ups…you covered several bases I hadn’t thought of…thank you so much.” Robin Whicker, Music Industry Account Executive, Nashville, TN
