There are many things to look for in a part-time job: great salary, flexible hours and a compatible team. However, a part-time job can be more than a paycheck and a way to spend time outside of the classroom. It can actually be something that you love.
If you’re looking for somewhere to start the job search, consider these part-time jobs that we love!
Sweet coffee. Great playlists. Tuition assistance. Starbucks isn’t just a nice place to relax and catch up with friends, it also has amazing work perks. They offer tuition assistance
to both full- and part-time workers. Employees are able to receive up to $47,000 in tuition assistance through Arizona State University’s (ASU) online program.
If academics are your strength, consider being a tutor. You get to create your own hours, and tutors generally make quite a bit of money per hour.
If you’re an animal lover, you’ll LOVE being a dog walker or pet sitter. Not only do you get to hang out with man or woman’s best friend, but you get to establish your own hours and workload. Dog-walking will allow you go keep your evenings free, and pet sitting may offer weekend hours – both great options for working around a class schedule.
If you want to get a jumpstart on your future career path in banking, consider starting with a part-time gig as a bank teller. This role offers great entry-level experience, and the chance to land a full-time job after graduation. Plus, bank tellers generally make well above minimum wage.
Have a clothing line or product that you’re passionate about? You can actually get paid to market that brand on your campus or social media accounts. These jobs are paid, but they may also come with commission or other prizes.
If you love kids, then you’ll love babysitting or being a nanny. These positions typically require week night and weekend work, making them perfect for your class schedule. Many students return to their hometowns to become full-time nannies over summer break. Both babysitting and nannying pay very well, enabling students to work when they want and how much they want while still making great money.
Social Media Assistant
You’re on social media all of the time anyway, right? Might as well get paid for it! In the age of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, you can actually get paid to handle the social media marketing for companies or products. Furthermore, it could lead to a full-time position after graduation as these particular roles are becoming increasingly common at non-profits, small businesses and large corporations.
A part-time job doesn’t have to be just another “to-do” on your list. It can actually be fun and rewarding. Discover what it is your passionate about, and start your part-time job search there.
