20 – 35 Points
Give yourself a pat on the bat – you’re an independent person, and working alone is where you thrive. The types of part-time jobs that best suit you may be work-from-home opportunities or quiet desk jobs. Though there may be a little interaction with others, you’re at your best when left alone to work. If this sounds like you, consider a part-time job as a social media manager or web editor. You could also work in retail or in the culinary field as someone that is behind the scenes, perhaps stocking inventory or preparing meals. Finally, if you don’t mind a little client interaction, consider a part-time job at an art gallery or museum.
36 – 45 Points
You’re a people person, and that will translate well to working both for and with others! While you have a strong desire to help others, you also just love the interesting things that can happen when you meet and serve others. What's more, you do your best when you have a team of people supporting you, making a team dynamic at work especially beneficial to your professional growth. And if you wouldn’t consider yourself a people person just yet; it may be the type of environment that you need in order to grow more. The right types of part-time jobs for you include opportunities in the retail or food industry, tutoring, dog-walking or child care.
46 – 60 Points
Is adventure your middle name? If it’s not, it should be. You love the flexibility and inspiration of being outdoors or walking through a big city and not “tied to a desk and chair,” as you may put it. At the same time, you love working with others – and how sweet would it be to get paid to explore, have fun and interact with a team of co-workers, kids or fellow adventurers? If this sounds like you, consider a job as a tour guide, sports instructor or camp counselor.
