How to make a career of multiple part-time jobs

Updated on February 20, 2016

Anyone can make a career of multiple part-time jobs, by doing things they love and enjoy. There are many ways of earning a living from part-time work. For the young school leavers, they have the opportunities of working at supermarkets, on school holidays and McDonald's during the week after school.

Job Sharing

Many employees now encourage and prefer their employers to job share the work. Instead of doing the work himself, when a worker is sick the other worker will take her/his place. This gives the employer peace of mind knowing if a staff member is sick the work is still completed. At the same time, either employee can work for another company doing a different type of job on the other days.


This is a brilliant way of obtaining work from employment agencies. Depending on the type of work you do, they may find you work in offices, as a receptionist, secretary, or filing work. You may have to work two days a week for one company, and three days somewhere else. On the off days, you may enjoy doing some other part-time job. The decision is yours.

Become multi skilled and earn more

The more skills you have the more employment opportunities you will have to gain more employment in variouse fields.

Party Plans

The sky is the limit as to which company you would like to sell for through holding parties. To name a few you could sell, Tupperware, Scrap-booking, Jewelry, make-up, fashion clothes, or lingerie. If you have a number of friends then this idea may suit your type of lifestyle. This would suit a person with children, by holding parties during the day, or at night while the husband is home to look after the children.

Door-to-Door Catalogues

You may wish to sell Avon. Leave the pamphlets out and collect again a few days later with their order. With this type of job, you can walk with the baby in a stroller, which would also keep you fit. Many companies offer this type of employment, to sell their products to householders.


Babysitters often work from an early age. Some make careers and travel the world by sitting for Lawyers, Solicitors, Doctors, and business directors. This could be a very rewarding job or career, if you wish to spend the time obtaining the correct qualifications.

You could combine several of these positions, which would give you more enjoyment than working for the one person week after week. To give you an example: I managed a Baby-sitting and cleaning service for a small company. If I could not find a worker for a certain job, I filled in, by doing the job myself. I also worked at a small retail shop two days a week. In between this, I took on voluntary teaching of Math's and English to people needing extra help at our local college.

I enjoyed doing that for three years. It gave me the challenge to do something rewarding for myself, and to help others. I could honestly say to anyone thinking of doing part-time work, as a career, you should go for it. You will never know what you could have achieved or where it may have led if you do not try.

      I've just signed up for some part-time cleaning - it seems to pay better than office work these days - at least in Perth - they just about fell over themselves hiring me!
