I am looking for a flexible job, because I am in college. I have worked retail a lot, and I don’t want to work retail, anymore. 😭
What suggestion do you guys have? 🥺
Thank you guys for your suggestions! 💜
you could drive and deliver food, or people... and you could do that on your own terms and time
you seem to be very nice, so could be a hostess maybe, at a restaurant...
you could also keep it school related, maybe some tutoring... or as campus tour guide, most colleges do have some jobs here and there as assistants, receptionists... etcétera
Yeah, she could definitely be a hostess. She'd be good at that.
yes... a good friend of mine did that during her college years, she even did it half time most of the time and still went very well for her, maybe you can give it a try as well
I worked for a local hospital in my early 20's cleaning patient rooms and in '07, getting paid $11/hr was good money! I wonder how much they get paid now! I got double on the weekends and optional overtime. I liked that job.. Or I worked at Culver's for a few years. Goodwill was an interesting job. I sorted the donations. Then I worked a job for the public school summer program in '09. That was fun. These kids had some disabilities like Autism and cerebral palsy but we did stuff w/them and took them places. That was a cool job too. Find a job you will like though not something you will dread going to everyday! Summer jobs are usually a lot of fun. Well good luck!
@JustiReno Bands? I'm not afraid of the feds! I been to Juarez in front of Border Patrol b/c my husband is an immigrant. I had to read my affidavit in front of two federales.. I don't get what ur point is?
@TransAm85 Juarez is no joke.
@DermalPunch I had to spend a few days in Juarez. Then we flew to his hometown Leon, Guanajuato
Try babysitting or nannying. I did that some in college, I had plenty of time to get my school stuff done, and it can actually pay pretty well.
I don't know if this suits you but I took on a part-time job in uni working as part of the cleaning staff in a hotel. I didn't do as much cleaning of rooms as the women working but I ended up mostly folding and lifting heavy bed frames up and downstairs. I also cleaned the windows outside the window, vacuumed the floors, took out the trash, but mostly as a guy they favored me to lift heavy things and do some of the hardest manual labor.
I liked that one fairly well since I worked at a video rental store before and I found it stressful dealing directly with customers, especially ones who were very rude and complained a lot.

Might not be for everyone! I saw all the cleaning as a chance to get a bit of a workout which made it more enjoyable to me. Even when I did the things housekeeping did like scrubbing bathtubs, it was quite a shoulder workout! Wax-on, wax-off, that sort of thing. :-D
Do you like kids or pets? You could be a nanny or dog walker/pet sitter but it’s not for everyone lol… Some people don’t like kids or pets, but the hours are super flexible.
You could do that again!
I think there’s some apps like Wag! or Rover that do it… Or you can download the Nextdoor app and post online saying you can dog walk/pet sit around your neighborhood.
But, usually those dog walking apps make you pay because you’re using their app to find people, etc… Lol.
I don't know any good "main" jobs however there are some jobs where you can end up earning a few extra bucks (sort of like a side job). if you can draw somewhat decently, you might want to get an art social media account and do commissions (however it'll probably take some time before you gain any popularity) or try to make money off of instagram as a model (which would also take some time before you get a following). but yeah, that's all i can think of as a way to earn a few bucks.
if you are almost 21yo you could get good at bar tending... the tips are likely to be really amazing if you don't mind the scene and late nights... Also, if you look around there is always side gigs to be found depending on your interests, work ethic and background.
Join the Army Reserve. Free college, voluntary deployment, help with rent, free meals, lifetime friends, free certifications, etc.
What would your dream job be?
What do you really want to do Ms JG?
Call some attorney offices and tell them what your dream is and ask if they have any part time openings.
Attorneys are always looking for clerical help and researchers.
You could start out learning to be a paralegal.
Although calling is better, if you are too timid to call, put a letter together with a resume and send it out to local attorneys.
Humm, Ms JG? ... let me think? ... wait, I know! ... Joy Girl... lol
Oh, and even better than calling is walking into their offices. You would be surprised at how many of them will be impressed with your tenacity and drive to be a winner in life and will want to latch onto you... no, I'm not kidding! :)
You're welcome :)
@JustiReno I want to do Criminal law or Environmental law.
just don't fall into mlm shits like avon, colour street, premerica, juice plus, scentsy and shit
You could work in daycare, the pay is decent and lots of centers need teachers. The nice thing you don't always have to have any experience. They'll train you if you haven't. If you like kids it could be a good job for you. I work at one and I find it pretty enjoyable.
Start side hustle. Start investing in stock exchange and crypto currencies. Learn how it works.
Have a backup income source just in case it takes more time to find your desired job. Get in touch with headhunter for various Job opportunities.
Everyone everywhere is hiring. I wouldn't worry about it. You got this! 😉
Telephone interviewer. You annoy tf out of people, seeing if they want to do a survey. Chances are, you'll get paid and keep the job but you need to not be a bish and cry when they call you a mofo for interuppting their dinner time.
My friend worked as an essay editor to pay her tuition when she was doing her masters degree. My Sanskrit professor worked as a copyrighter for 6 years before teaching at school.
I always looked on indeed, Glassdoor and LinkedIn. Those will have fast results.
what about being a food delivery babe? 😃 Door Dash and all those things whatever they're called. You can pick and choose when you want to deliver stuff. Other than that, I don't know. Lots of places are flexible with hours if you ask them about it, but yeah, office type stuff would definitely want you there when they need you there, so that's no bueno.
You can become a tutor for your college major, lots of young teens are looking for tutors nowadays and you can work from home and the hours are flexible. You choose when you work basically
Well retail involves working with people. You could try looking for a job with community centres or other jobs dealing with the public. Grocery stores are kind of parallel to retail as well.
I work retail, I know why you don't want to 😭
Maybe try librarian? Seems easy and peaceful.
I can stand the back aches, it's the headaches from Karen's insisting they have a %50 off coupon that drive me insane
So do i!!
Sure, get that brain dead fuckwit, Joe, out of the White House and put Trump back in where he rightfully belongs!! We had jobs a-plenty with him in office!!
Bullshit. Fact Check that... try RECORD UNEMPLOYMENT RATES UNDER TRUMP.
@CasuallySamsonite You're FULL of bullshit!! Fact check doesn't work! it only tells you what the loony lefties WANT to hear! There were LOADS of help wanted signs out everywhere when Trump was in office!! The day he won the election, he got a few THOUSAND jobs for people that wanted one!! He didn't wait `til Jan.!! He started doing his job THE DAY HE WON THE ELECTION!! Here it is, over a year later and we're STILL waiting for Brandon to do accomplish ANYTHING!! Well,. anything GOOD!!
Depends what skills you've got.
Maybe do call center or admin if you don't want to deal with people face to face.
I have only ever worked labor but just apply part time for whatever job you apply and obviously explain your situation

Someone told me yesterday they were making about $35/hour working at a jail, and they had previously been making $45/hour as a Psych Tech at a prison. (She had do do a year of school to get that job.)
There are a lot of really high paying jobs in government that require little to no education, and look a LOT better on a resume than working retail, fast food, or some other basic minimum wage job.
As for flexibility, with the pandemic, now is a great time to find remote work, as well as really flexibly work. I also know of a company hiring basic health care workers (no experience required) for $20/hour, and they have shifts on a pick up basis, on call/part time, just let them know your availability and if you are reliable they will work with your schedule. I'm doing work like this through nursing school and it's great; I can also pick up double shifts for bonus pay, and make over $500/day if I want a little extra cash.
