Debating betwn staying on with current team after negotiating a 30% increase or accepting PT role, with this negotiated increase the hourly pay is $1 different. (Prior to this I was making nearly $11 less/hour from PT role) PT role was 20 hours/week and emailed ask if I’d be open to 30 which is more appealing. 7.5 YOE in current role, worried about losing seniority in economic climate and risk to layoffs in PT role but being a parent I have been seeking more time not working too. Advice welcome
I was laid off last month but now in the final interview stage for two very different opportunities.
First opp is a digital agency and they asked if I’d consider a part-time contract gig with the “goal to hire” in 60 days, depending on the COVID impact. So no guarantee for a full-time offer. Second opp is a client side marketing role at a publicly traded company that has been somewhat recession-proof. Culture is very corporate and a bit conservative (not creative).
What would you choose?

Negotiating with a small company (<700 people) but I’m worried pushing for too much $ will put me under a magnifying glass to make an impact right away + I’d be the first one to go if layoffs. True?
I have been laid off by my current company but they kept me on payroll till 8th Sept. I have applied and given interviews to many companies but they have been very slow. Fortunately I am in the last round of a series C startup company where I completed 2 video interviews and 1 onsite design cum take home challenge and just waiting for the CEO and CTO to take my interview. The CEO has been traveling for 2 weeks. I don't know what to expect in this last round. Any thoughts/perspective on this?

First time mom, gave birth three days ago to a baby boy. He had really low blood sugar on his second day and was almost comatose so he had to be taken to NICU to be monitored and tested every time he feeds. I’m worried sick that it might be something serious because he doesn’t fit any of the risk factors for having this issue and I’ve been crying on and off for the last two days. Has anyone else experienced this? I just want him to be healthy...
