“Full-Time”

Margie Wakeman Wells General, The Hyphen Leave a Comment

The dictionary shows full-time hyphenated as an adverb.

…He works full-time.
…She was there full-time.

As an adjective, it follows the rules: Hyphenate it as a direct adjective; do not hyphenate it when it is not in front of the noun.

…He has a full-time job.
…His job is full time.

Part-time follows these same rules.

Happy punctuating!
