Best Part Time Jobs Available
If you are looking to make an additional income, try a part time job. Good paying part time work is hard to find, but there are many part time jobs available that pay well and offer good perks. Often, part time jobs pay more than full-time employment because they do not offer benefits. If you only need the money and not the benefits, part time is the way to go.
Moms, retirees, career-changers and others often want to earn an income that will supplement the household income. If you do not want the hassle of a long daily commute yet get a decent wage, I have news for you.

* Jobs you can work from home
Many part time jobs and careers can be worked from home. Some are home-based; meaning that some of the work is done at home. Technology has made many jobs available to work from home. You can have conference calls over the phone and video calls from home; record your work hours using software; send email; and do many other needed projects to earn an income.
As a side note: When you are searching for part time work, do not limit your search to a title; search for the function and skill you possess. For example, you want to be a Teacher; type in your search engines something more specific like: “teach social studies to high schoolers”. Be as specific as possible when searching. When I found a part time job I have worked for nine years, I did not know the title; I found it by searching for the function and skills I possessed.
Which leads me to the next point, you must know your skill set. I talk about this all the time. The better you know yourself, the better part time job/career you will land. Here is a list of the things you need to know about yourself to get the best part time job you can:
1) Skills – are you good at solving problems; managing money; spreadsheets, etc.
2) Industry – what industry do you want to work in?
3) Experience – know your past successes and achievements.
4) Availability – how many hours are you available to work a week?
5) Where – do you want to work from home, offsite or relocate?
Try Something New
Be willing to try something new. In our changing world, there are many opportunities that can be fulfilling. Be flexible in your thinking, and if you have an inkling to step out and try it, go ahead. You will not be penalized for trying. How will you ever know unless you try? Speaking of trying, have you thought about working online. Online jobs are available in abundance, but you should investigate and make sure you know all the facts before you sign up. Online work is the wave of the future - check it out.
Last point, do not look for a job or career change without a plan; this is dangerous. Plan your journey to a new life. Give yourself daily, weekly and monthly goals. And when you reach your goals, reward yourself for accomplishing something you have never done. Searching for a part time job takes no less effort than applying for a full time job – give it your all.
