9 Side Jobs to Consider Working
It does not matter what you do for a living or how much you earn. Side jobs have proven to be incredibly useful time and time again. I tend to find them around the holidays to help pay for Christmas presents, but I have known plenty of people with families to work side jobs for extra income. If you are in search of some extra side work but you don’t know where to look, this list will easily narrow it down for you.
1- Dog Walking Service
You will be surprised how many people with dogs are willing to pay to have someone else walk them. Most people work during the day and can’t be home to walk their pets. The extra money for the amount of time you are required to walk is pretty decent for a side job. It might not buy a house or a new car, but if you love working with animals with little experience, why not get paid for it?
2- Online Instructor
According to this CNBC article, being an online instructor can be full-time, part-time, remote, or occasional work. There are numerous websites that allow you to sign up for free as an online instructor. If you do not have enough credentials for this type of work and would still like to educate others, there is online tutoring side jobs as well.
3- Delivery Driver
This option does not always require you to work at a pizza parlor. By signing up with companies such as Uber Eats and Door Dash, you simply pick up the orders from approved restaurants and deliver them. You still make tips too. It is all automated, so everything is quicker and easier than ever.
This isn’t just an after-school job for teenagers anymore. I worked as an assistant at an in-home daycare business years ago. I didn’t gain many hours every week, but it was something I really enjoyed at the time. I was able to make extra money building forts, playing house, and playing tag all day.
5- House Cleaner
You don’t need to be part of a business to do this job. In fact, you can start your own side business doing this type of work. You would decide how often and how much you wanted to work. You would also decide what to charge your customers. Many people who opt for this side job usually have a minimum number of hours if charging a moderate hourly rate.
5- Micro Jobs
There are hundreds of websites offering a number of small tasks. These side jobs are usually very simple, and they don’t take up much of your time. Some websites require you to pass grammar tests in order to pursue the work available.
6- Selling Photography
Many people enjoy photography as a hobby but dread the idea of spending time trying to turn it into a career. If you feel your work is half decent, you might consider trying out apps like Shutterstock to sell your work. They offer royalties each time your photo is used.
7- Curriculum Writer
This article offers many choices for high paying work almost anyone can do on the side. With curriculum writing at the top of the list, the extra money is definitely worth the effort.
8- Tour Guide
This side job is perfect for anyone who has a passion for the city in which they live. While showing others the best parts of the city, you may also find new things about your hometown you never knew. As a bonus, you get to meet new people too.
9- Be Santa Claus
This one is obviously for the holidays, but it isn’t restricted to Santa. You could be Santa’s elves, Mrs. Claus, or even just someone who decorates Santa’s workshop. It’s a fun and very unique way of earning some extra money.
While there are lots of ways to earn passive income, these are most related to finding side work. Whether you are introverted and prefer working from home away from the public, or you love being social with strong people skills, there is something on this list for every type of person out there.
