Last time, I talked about ways to earn extra income at work through new responsibilities and volunteering to work overtime. Today, I’d like to share with you some ideas on how to “moonlight” or add supplemental income without affecting your personal life or worklife and time.
If you are in retail, there are a number of legit mystery shopping companies that will hire you to do freelance mystery shopping. While not a lot of money, $10-25 per mystery shop is certainly the norm when it comes to doing this type of work.
Another retail option is short-term merchandising assignments. Many companies will hire temporary staff for a new floor set or holiday event.
In foods, opportunities exist working part-time at banquet events or trade shows. Likewise, many food companies will do mystery shops or demos at stores.
The possibilities are endless. Sites like elance.com provide you with lists of such short-term opportunities as I describe above.
