Part Time Weekend Jobs
A part-time weekend job is a great employment opportunity, whether it be as a second job to provide additional income, to pick up some extra cash on the weekends while your spouse is taking care of the kids, or as something fun to occupy your time during the weekends. No matter what your reason, there are plenty of employment opportunities for part-time weekend jobs.
Weekends are some of the busiest days at shopping centers. While everyone else spends their day-off work by spending money, you could earn major dollars through part-time weekend jobs in retail. If you are an especially strong seller, you may also want to consider retail and sales employment opportunities that are based on commission.
There are endless employment opportunities for part-time weekend jobs in the restaurant and food service industry. From waiters and waitresses, to hosts and hostesses, bus staff, baristas, bartenders and banquet servers, weekend workers are in high demand. Just like retail, the food industry is often at its peak on weekends.
If there is something you are good at doing, use it to your advantage and make some money! Look into a local park district or health and recreation center where you could teach a weekend class, such as fitness, pilates, cooking or cake decorating. Teaching a class would be a fun option for a part-time weekend job. Piano, guitar or voice lessons are also great weekend employment opportunities.
The healthcare industry is one of the few industries that literally works around the clock. Nursing is a great opportunity for part-time weekend jobs because there is a strong need for evening nurses, night nurses and weekend nurses. Physical therapists and speech pathologists are also good part-time weekend jobs for those of you with a medical background.
Whether you are a housekeeper in a hotel or working as a janitor in a school or office, housekeeping and custodial work are great employment opportunities for part-time weekend jobs.
Many companies that are open on weekends may be looking for extra help on Saturdays and Sundays to give their regular workers some time off. You may have the best luck finding weekend administrative work at banks, real estate agencies, doctors offices or other companies with weekend hours. When looking for a weekend receptionist job, you may want to stop in to different small businesses and ask to speak with a manager. Some companies may not even realize that they need part-time weekend help until you are standing right in front of them!
The hospitality and recreation industries are typically at their busiest during weekends, so why not try being a tour guide? Local museums, zoos and tourist attractions are great places to look for part-time weekend jobs. Be sure to investigate all options for possible local employment opportunities, such as your town’s historical society or nature center.
Tutor Many students are too busy during weekdays with extracurricular activities, so they schedule tutoring sessions on weekends. If you are interested in being a tutor, you may choose to seek out your own clients by speaking with parents and school teachers, or you have the option of tutoring through a company such as Sylvan Learning Center, Huntington Learning Center or Kumon. Tutoring is also a great part-time weekend job for high school students.
Security There are many staffing companies that specialize in hiring security officers for contract work. Other companies, such as casinos, hire “in-house” security guards to work directly for their company. Part-time weekend jobs in security often do not require much experience, so they may also provide great entry-level employment opportunities.
In addition to these employment opportunities, you may also have luck finding part-time weekend jobs in freelance writing, delivery, warehouse, customer service and call centers. Other part-time weekend jobs may be seasonal. For example, if you are interested in accounting employment, there is likely to be a need for extra help during tax season, this may provide great temporary weekend jobs in accounting employment. During the warmer months, you can find part-time weekend jobs in outdoor settings, such as amusement parks or beaches.
There is a good chance that you can find a part-time weekend job to meet your interests and work schedule. Many part-time weekend jobs are advertised in newspaper employment classifieds and online job databases. To make your online job search easier, use keywords such as “weekend,” “part time” or “part time weekend.” You may also want to inquire directly with different companies. If you are the right candidate, a company may be willing to be more flexible for you by turning a typical part-time job into a part-time weekend job.
