How To Find A Part Time Job
Knowing how to find a part-time job in today's rough economy can be difficult, but in as little as one day, if you look around hard enough, you will easily find jobs looking for part-time employees. Below you will find guidelines on how to find a part time job.
- Classified sections in local newspapers or community papers will always have available job listings to look through. There may be no jobs or slim pickings, so look every week to see if anything pops up that is seeking part-time work.
- When you are out shopping, always look on windows to see if there is a "Now Hiring" sign posted. Although seeing such a sign is rare in today's economy, you will be surprised to see how many places are actually looking for employees. Keep your eyes open.
- If there is no sign posted on a particular store window you are looking to work for, you can always ask to speak with the manager and ask him if he could use part-time help. Asking never hurt anyone.
- Let others know you are looking for part time work. Friends and family sometimes will know of available work. If they do not know of any jobs available off hand, when one happens to arise they will hopefully think of you and let you know about the job.
- Most employers look for weekend help more than any other day of the week, so keep your weekends open for part-time work. Nights hours usually need to be filled as well. Although they may be the worst hours and weekends may not be what you were looking for, keep your options open.
- Have your resume readily available for when you are job hunting locally. It is a good first impression if you happen to walk into a place looking for employees to have your resume readily available. It will show the employer you are ready to go.
- If all else fails, make a post in a local paper in the classified section that you are looking for part time work. Posting up something about looking for work on social networks is also a good idea.
