Part time jobs are no longer for the poor university students. They are a new way of life! More & more people are taking on part time jobs to lead full time lives, whether they are single parents, struggling students or someone who just wants to take advantage of a great lifestyle. No matter the circumstances, there is always something out there for you. Sometimes all you need is a little inspiration, and that’s what I’m here for.
This is my starting five – there will be five more to come in tomorrow’s edition!
- Dental Assistant
In Australia, you do not need certification to become a dental assistant. If you are interested in health care, this could be a great way to get some experience and see if you would like to pursue a career in health. Alternatively, it could be the perfect part time job due to the hours and pay rate. You would only be required to work during the day, and it’s a job you could work anywhere in the country!
Imagine getting to spend your working hours soaking up the sun on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Welcome to the life of an Australian lifeguard. However, if this is something you are interested in, there are many certificates and skills you must acquire before being able to apply. After all, they are responsible for everyone’s safety at the beach! While many lifeguards are volunteers, they do employ hundreds of people a year.
Not all aspiring musicians make it to fame, many of them keep their day jobs and head to the local bar at night to play their gigs. There are many venues that regularly hire acoustic musicians or bands for entertainment, not just for functions. So if you are musically gifted, have a think about playing some gigs around town for some extra cash!
People are always looking to better themselves, no matter what area they may be either studying or working in. Enter tutor. Even if you’re a university student, you could be getting paid to tutor your fellow classmates in an area that you may excel at. Or if you’re not too academic, what about casual music tutoring? Whatever it is that you may be particularly good at, chances are someone will be willing to pay you to learn more.
- Wait Staff
The old faithful. Don’t be fooled. Waiting/waitressing can be stressful when cafes and restaurants get busy, having to deal with stressed out chefs as well as painful customers (the customer is always right, the customer is always right). However, it does come with its benefits: flexibility, tips, working with people and variety of venues.
