Part Time Jobs

Work SignOne of the best ways to ‘cash flow’ your education is by working one or more jobs. Often there is a bottleneck of people applying for jobs everyone sees or knows about, while high paying part time jobs lie unfilled. To perk up your antenna to possible opportunities, here is an incomplete list of part time jobs. This is just a quick list I thought of off the top of my head, but I borrowed from this resource and I didn’t include any job where I didn’t actually know someone that has done it. I also didn’t include any jobs where a discernible skill or licensing requirement was necessary before starting – so no ‘C++’, ‘auto mechanic’, or ‘life insurance sales’. If you have a discernible skill you should probably leverage that into a high paying part-time job.

I’ve organized them around sectors of the market that seem to have high labor needs:
