A lot of us, this writer included, are looking for a part-time career. We all have different reasons for wanting to do something part-time. Here are just some of the reasons:

Hey, we all could use some extra money. Prices of goods are skyrocketing and our salary is not.

Have you been doing the same things at work over and over again? You’re looking for another challenge to keep things interesting. Maybe you just want to learn new things and improve your skillset.
- You’re stressed.
Prolonged stress in the workplace is not good. If you’ve been stressed for a long time and there’s no sign of things improving, you’re right to consider a shift in career. You can play it safe by exploring a part-time career first before making the complete switch once you’re ready.
Part-time Careers for You to Consider
Here are some of the best part-time careers that you can consider:

You do need to invest on a good computer and of course, learn new skills.
- Be a tutor.
A lot of parents are looking for a tutor for their kids. You can start by offering your services to family and friends. This is potentially lucrative if you’re pretty good at Math as it’s a problem subject for a lot of students. If you have the proper credentials, you can earn hundreds of pesos an hour.
You can also take advantage of the influx of Koreans, Chinese and other foreigners in our country and teach them English.

This requires a certain look, personality and network. Basically, you’ll be an influencer for brands. You can do it on site by handing out flyers and pushing for the product that you’re promoting. You can also do it via social media if you have the following.

A lot of people would like to improve different areas of their life and you can take advantage of this. You can be a fitness coach if you live a healthy lifestyle. You can be a life coach if you yourself have encountered major troubles in your life and have overcome them. If you’re a good investor, you can be a financial coach.
- Do errands.
People are busy nowadays and they can’t be bothered to do errands. That’s where you can come in. You can tell your family and friends that you can do their errands for them for a fee. It can be something as simple as paying bills, doing grocery or even house sitting or pet sitting.
- Sell online.
If you’re on Facebook, you know that online selling is a viable part-time career. You can start by selling things that you don’t need. That should give you some extra money that you can use for your expenses. Better yet, use the money to invest on inventory.
