Contemplate working an easier schedule, less hectic, less strenuous and still continue to receive employment benefits. A dream world? No, this desirable lifestyle can be yours and even be, hard to believe, beneficial to your employer.
There are myriad advantages of part time jobs. They are less taxing; one gets more time to spend with the kids and family, you can catch up on movies and the book that you had always wanted to read and pursue a hobby and even while doing so earn a regular pay check.
Check out the job options that allow you to do so:
The salary mentioned is an average hourly salary, usually given to workers with up to eight years of experience. Part time workers are those workers who work less than 30 hours per week.
Registered nurses are paid around $27.90 per hour. They have fulfilling jobs and provide medical and emotional support to patients and their families. Hospitals are workplaces that have to remain open 24x7, so they could be called in to work at odd hours, if an emergency demands so. Many nurses work just 2, 12-hour days a week and yet get full benefits
Automotive Service Technician/Mechanic
Automotive service technicians inspect and repair motor vehicles. There jobs include doing everything pertaining to motor maintenance. Technicians have to be computer savvy as most vehicles run on advanced technology. They earn as much as $18.30 per hour. With the ever increasing number of cars on the road it is a profession that will always remain in demand.
Surgical technologists, more popularly known as scrub techs, assist surgeons in the operating room. They are responsible for doing everything in preparedness for surgery. They have to ensure that the surgical instruments are in place and the patient is ready for surgery and the doctors surgery team, nurses, anesthetists and all other personnel have been alerted. They earn a median pay of $17.80 per hour. However, given the nature of the work, their work schedule could include holidays and weekends.
School Bus Driver
Not many people would like to cope with a job that has screaming and shouting kids, grumpy parents and a school management that is forever preaching safety precautions. Add to this the pressure of deadlines and reaching the school on time. But a job that pays $14 an hour and all you have to do is two routes in the morning and two in the afternoon, the chaos and commotion may be music to your ears. Plus, there is always the opportunity to make extra money by transporting children to field trips during the day or school sports teams to and from their events after school.
And the icing on the cake - the kids summer vacations are your's too.
Certified Pharmacy Technician
It's nice to be qualified pharmacist, but if don't have the aptitude or inclination to get a four-year degree in pharmacy; you can still enjoy the benefits of the pharmacy industry. The pharmacy industry is one of the most stable and sound industries in the country and scope for advancement are huge. A certified pharmacy technician (CPhT) works under a licensed pharmacist to dispense prescriptions. Most of the work will be in retail stores and some weekend work may be required. But at $14 an hour and benefits in the bag, I have yet to hear a certified pharmacy technician complain.
If handling money is your forte and you like the feel of the green stuff in your hands, then this is the job for you. However, you have to be good in accounting, quick on the calculator and ensure that the cash in your drawer balances every day, or you could end up compensating from your own pocket. At $10.90 an hour, the smell of the money you handle will remain with you, whilst you return home and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
