Over the recent times, there has been a spate of “lay-off’s and golden hand shakes” in the IT and Non-IT space which has left the job industry shaken. While some despair over the loss, there are the hopeful lot that see a ray of hope- the hope of being in a state that is better than yester years. But it takes a lot to bounce back from the “truss”. It’s important that you take time out and reflect on what happened, why it happened and what can be done to “ace” the “race” of life.

But, hey, in the time of reflection, you need something to keep the lights on. Something like a stop-gap that will help you make ends meet. There a score of options available today if you wish to earn without being in a full-time employee. If you are student who has spare time after college, or a home-maker who wishes to do some job without “being in “ the job or some-one who just wants to take that sabbatical to reflect on life, there are many part-time jobs available – some requiring skills, some absolutely nothing. Here’s a list of few part-time options we have curated, specifically, for someone who respects any job irrespective of how the society looks at it!! We have tagged them as skilled and un-skilled for ease of reference. Here you go –


  1. Pamphlet distributors (un-skilled): This is about standing at a busy city centre and distributing pamphlets to passerby’s. It takes about 2 to 6 hours and you could earn anywhere from 500 to 1000 a day. Not bad, huh!!?
  2. Freelance training (skilled): If you are one among those who wishes to give a shot at entrepreneurship post years of monday 9 to 5 jobs, this is something you should ploy. But it requires you to be good at a subject (technical or non-technical) and commitment of 8 to 16 hours a week.
  3. Pet caring (unskilled): Working professionals having pet find it difficult to manage time with work, household chores and managing their pets. If you are one of those who love pets, why not just take up a bit of that “pet caring” and earn handsomely.
  4. Clothes ironing (unskilled): Tagging this unskilled as we are assuming that anyone who has an iron-box can iron. So if you have an iron box why not sign up as an “iron-man” and save the bachelors in the city some time and money. J
  5. Handy man (skilled): If you are one of who loves fixing stuff - gas stove, furniture, electrical appliances, refrigerators, plumbing – this one’s for you. But we suggest to not venture if you haven’t had the experience. Who really needs “shocks” after all!!
  6. Temporary waiters (unskilled): The fast food joints are the best places to find temp waiting jobs. This one is quite popular among college going youngsters. Perhaps there is an opportunity of getting a permanent employment if you provide the ultimate guest experience.
  7. Team building coach (skilled): Corporates rope in out bound trainers to up the game of their intellectual assets. And over the past decade there has been a uprising in the team building organizations. If you have basic training skills this would be a perfect opportunity that not only earns you money but is quite a fulfilling career option
  8. Car cleaning (unskilled): Who doesn’t have a car that does’nt need a cleaning. A residential complex with 400 flats can have 420 to 480 cars. Each wash can earn you about 100 bucks and takes about 30 mins. Potentially you can earn Rs 500 in 2.5 hours. Howzzat!!
