Getting a Second Job
Getting a second job can help boost your income, and can be fun at the same time. To make it as enjoyable as possible, try to find work that suits your personality and interests.
If, for example, you have a great love of photography or athletics, consider getting a second job at a camera shop or at an athletics store or gym. If you tend to be outgoing, try to find work that allows you to interact with people. If you're shy, consider working behind the scenes at a company that interests you, instead of having to work with people. By matching your personality and interests to your second job, the extra work may not seem as difficult to endure.
One of the best times to find a second job in retail is during the holidays. Companies hire seasonal employees from the week of Thanksgiving through the New Year.
At that point, you're usually out of a second job, but if you've worked out well for the company and express interest in continuing to work for them, you may be called back for the next holiday season and at various times throughout the year.
Don't let your employee discount get you further into debt. If you work at a camera shop and find yourself buying thousands of dollars worth of equipment that you wouldn't normally have purchased, your second job could be little more than a new way to get into debt.
