Some Ideas For Part-Time Jobs



Many options for part time jobs are available: all you need to do is put your thinking cap on and think creatively about earning a living.

If you don’t like the idea of working for someone, you can even consider working for yourself, part time, and on your own terms.

It does not matter if you are a stay at home mom, a university student or someone looking to supplement your income.

Instead of struggling to find a well-paying job in a time of job scarcity or worrying about how to earn more, how about taking a pro-active approach to increasing your earning-potential instead?

Where can I find a part-time job?

There are many ideas for part time jobs that could assist you in making your own money without having to rely on a boss.

If you are computer savvy, then one way to start supplementing your income with a part time job is to use your technology skills in the delivery of a service.

You could promote your computer training services and consider teaching classes through organisations in your community which offer adult educated courses.

It does not matter if you skilled in HTML, desktop publishing or any other computer based skill, as you could make use of any of these, according to

If you are creative, you can try creating your own custom jewellery and accessories.

Many people make their own jewellery from a variety of different materials ranging from sterling silver to clay.

One of the best ways to promote your jewellery is at markets, craft shows, fairs and festivals.

If you are skilled at writing and looking to work from the comfort of your own home, you might want to consider freelance online writing as a part time job.

Freelance online writing requires you to have a good command of the English language, as well as a stable internet connection.

There are many freelance writing websites both nationally and internationally for you to find work, according to Extra Income Job Ideas.

Becoming a personal trainer or martial arts instructor are ideas to consider if you are passionate about exercise and fitness.

If you already have experience with health and fitness or a martial art, why not consider teaching your skills privately?

You can teach classes to smaller or bigger groups of people or children.

Alternatively you can offer one-on-one lessons.

You can also opt to offer both options.

House sitting is another way for you to make money on a part time basis.

It is highly advisable to build up a list of credible references you can share with potential employers.

You can either put your own ads on free classified websites in your city or you can search for people who are looking for reliable house sitters, or both, according to

There are many jobs available for welders, but it's important to note what kind of welding you want to do before choosing your trade.

When you hear the word "welder," perhaps your mind conjures images of a burly man or woman covered in a suit, hunched over an electric arc welder, furiously fusing two pieces of metal together.  Welding is a process that can be used in many different industries. Although the word "welder" might bring to mind someone who works with metal, welding is done in all sorts of industries – from construction to the manufacturing industry.
