Evening/Weekend Jobs

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jul 27, 2016 11:08 am

I have a 9-5 job. I'm looking for something part-time for the evenings/weekends. Any ideas where to look, and for what types of jobs, both law and non-law related? Other than doing solo work. Thanks.

Tutor the LSAT for Kaplan, Princeton, etc. Pays like $18-33/hour with an average around $24. If you do it for awhile, you can get closer to the $33 which is some great money, or you can negotiate for a higher starting pay if you did really well on the LSAT, and are therefore, more qualified than other tutors/teachers.

Two problems with that are: I did well on the LSAT, but nothing amazing (Sub 170), and also, I hate teaching lol

In my experience, bartending can be tough during evenings, because usually places want you in closer to 4pm and even earlier so you have time to setup before opening for the evening, and places that let you start later generally expect you to stay much later, which makes getting to work at 9am not fun.

Could look for a place that would hire you just for Friday late night shifts, or on Saturdays, but those are usually the most coveted shifts, so they'll be tough to get unless you have a lot of experience, or earn them by spending a lot of time taking the crappy Monday/Tuesday shifts.

Uber seems like the best option here. You can totally control when you drive and don't have rigid shifts so you'll be able to stop driving if a lot is happening at work one week. Plus evening/weekend are good uber driving times.

Ever consider being a private tutor? I did this during law school, and tutored math and foreign languages I speak. I had no desire to tutor LAST. That was a few years ago, and I could easily charge $60-80 an hour.
