Part Time Jobs
A part time job can be used to produce extra income, or income for those with a limited amount of time to work, such as teens, high school and college students, retirees, or single parents. Part time jobs also make good 'second jobs' or 'weekend jobs' for those who need to bring in more income than their primary employment provides. Seasonal Jobs are typically part time too. They usually only provide temporary employment and only last for several weeks or months of the year. Summer jobs, Thanksgiving and Christmas jobs are considered Seasonal Jobs. Snagajob.com reports 74 percent of employers hire new people for the summer, and the majority of them will have those employees hired by the end of May.
Don't worry if this is your first part time job. Many employers have part time jobs available for workers with little or no experience, and offer on-the-job training, mentoring, or classes to help you get going. A part time job could lead to a new career, or at least expose you to an industry that you might be interested in learning more about. "Getting your foot in the door" with a part time job could lead to bigger and better things.
