Let's face it. Having a part-time job in this era is simply a must for those who want to earn extra. Gone are the days that you can be able to earn a decent living with just one job. Here are the top 5 best part time jobs you can do:
1. Writing articles for websites of companies
Most companies maintain a company website. But the problem is that most companies cannot really keep on writing good content regularly because for these companies, writing is not really their main specialization. If you have the skills to write a good article typically more or less 500 words per article, then this job may be for you.
Average Pay: P500 to P1,500 per article (or probably more)
Skills Needed: Writing skills, grammar, spelling, ability to find topics that are engaging, ability to make benta to the company that you are a good writer
How to Become: Search for a company that has a blog or has a regular article written in Facebook. Send an email to the company asking if they are looking for articles. Ask them how much they are willing to pay per article.
2. Working as a mobile application driver (ex. Grab)
If you drive a TNVS car such as Grab, you may want to ask them how much they are earning. Chances are you will be amazed at how much they earn per month. Though the income is higher for full timers because of the incentives provided, driving your own car for money during weekends for an extra income may not be a bad idea at all.
Average Pay: P700 to P2,000 per day (depends on passengers delivered, gas prices, incentives)

3. Helping your friend find clients for his sales job and asking for a referral fee
People who are working in a sales organization are pressured by quotas left and right. If you have a friend who is working as a seller of goods or service and you know people who can benefit from their service, you may want to create a mutually beneficial business partnership with your friend. This is a win win situation as your friend will be able too boost his sales while you also earn a decent referral fee. Just make sure that your agreement is properly document to avoid losing a friend or vice versa.
Generally sales people will not want to give a referral fee unless it an agreement to give many clients with a set amount of agreed duties and responsibilities to be done by the referrer such as being there during the presentation meeting. Remember this is may be the bread and butter of your friend.
Average Pay: I don't really have an idea how much you will receive but you can talk to your friend about the referral fee he is willing to give (but you can earn a lot if you close a big sale)
Skills Needed: Ability to make chikka and kwento the product your friend is selling, Ability not to be offended by bashers, Ability to make friends and expand your network
How to Become: Be willing to reach out your friend who you know is selling a product that you are a believer in. Referring a product to a friend that you also believe in will be much easier.
4. Making posters, graphics designs or editing videos
In this digital age, it is not usual that small to medium companies usually resort to freelancers to make their posters, graphics or to edit their videos. If you have skills in these areas, you may be able to earn good money for yourself.
Average Pay: Usually the pay depends on how many hours you need to spend for the work as well as the level of skill required. Typically around P1000 to P10,000 or more per project.

How to Become: Find friends who own a small business. Ask them if they have a blog, website or social media page that needs images or videos. Encourage them to create better looking pictures and videos. Make benta that you are the right person for the job.
5. Sell life insurance, health insurance and investments
Selling is probably one of the best jobs that you can do part-time since it does not require you to go to the office regularly. The best product to sell are usually products that are intangible. Products that are physical such as land may require you to have a car so that you can do a tripping with your client to the land you are selling. Small products that are physical may or may not be heavy but the challenge is the need for the buyer to do an ocular inspection of the product. And sometimes you need to verify if the product is still available or if it is out of stock.
Thus, we suggest selling intangible products such as investments and insurance. Further there is a good career progression for these kinds of people. People who start as insurance or investment agents who perfect their craft and study the career can eventually move on to become professional financial advisors.
These financial advisors if well known and intelligent, may be able to charge a financial consultancy fee to their clients usually on a per hour basis or on a per report basis.
In the mean time you can start by offering investment and insurance to your friends and family part-time and give a free financial advise until such time you will be sought after.
