Default What are your work strategies like?

I am starting to work again next week and I wondered how to structure my day.

Do I work for an hour and break for half an hour? Or do I push myself to work 8 hours streight?

What kind of job is it? Many jobs wont allow half an hour breaks every hour. If you are allowed to take breaks its fine but half an hour every hour is going to make your days very long

It really depends on what type of work you are doing and how much your employer expects you to produce. For example, in my case, I do freelance business writing. My client normally expects me to get one project done a day. There is some variation on how long they can be, so, I need to arrange my time to make sure I get things done. What type of work are you doing? Have you received any guidance from your employer? I would think a first day would include some training. For most jobs, a half hour break after an hour of working sounds like a lot of down-time, I think.

It's a job in IT, I am a student worker. I have a project for the next 6 to 8 months, but I don't really know yet how much work it will be. I will require training, but I hope that I will have a lot of time in-between. If it is anything like my last training, I will get someone on my virtual side and just ask for his time whenever I need it. If not, well, then I'll have to accomodate that.

I wonder if a longer day with lots of breaks (e.g. from 7am to 6pm) would be better than a short day.
