How I Find Part-Time Jobs

There have been several times in my life when I have worked two to three different jobs. Finding part-time jobs typically takes some time and effort but the extra cash has been worth the time spent. Here is what I did to find extra work.

Local Classified Ads
I have found that not a lot of companies are willing to spend a lot of money to find part-time workers. I find part-time jobs by looking in major and minor local newspapers. I live in a major metropolitan area so many of the suburbs have their own local papers. These papers are typically cheaper to advertise in so local businesses sometimes advertise part-time jobs through these local papers.

Free Online Advertising Sites
I also find part-time jobs through free online advertising sites. Places like Craigslist are a good place to look. Be careful when using resources like this since jobs advertised on these are not always legitimate. I have also gotten spammed from answering ads on these sites and gotten emails from questionable people. If you send your resume to emails you find on these sites, leave all contact information except your email address off of your resume. You may even want to setup a separate email account for this just in case your email address gets sold to other people. If you get a reply from someone, check out the company information they give you to make sure it is legitimate. Only agree to an interview if you can track down who the company is.

Throwing Newspapers
I have delivered newspapers as a part-time job a few different times in my life. If you live in a major metropolitan area chances are that the major newspaper for your town needs people to drive routes. A good way to find part-time jobs like this is to simply call the newspaper up. Every time I called a newspaper asking if they needed people to deliver newspapers I got a yes. Make sure to get a route in a good neighborhood since you will likely be throwing newspapers at about 4am or 5am in the morning. There is often not many other people around. The downside to this part-time job is that you will have to get to the warehouse to get your newspapers by about 2am or 3am in the morning. Often even earlier for the Sunday papers. With the cost of gas as high as it is, you will also want to make sure that you are making enough profit on it after you pay for gas for your route.
