From barista to blogger, it's not uncommon these days for millennials to have a side job to earn a little extra money and still set their own hours.
In fact, many young people who aren't working two jobs want to be. One third of millennials said, ideally, they would want part-time work coupled with freelancing on the side, according to a recent report by employment site FlexJobs.
"The millennial generation has far more options for part-time, freelance and other flexible work than previous generations," said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs.
"Millennials have grown up with technology and mobility in a way that really provides less attachment to 'one way of doing things,' i.e. a full-time job," she said.
As it turns out, people looking for part-time work that pays decently and offers a flexible schedule have many options. Choices include driving for a ride share company like Uber or Lyft, or working as a freelance Web developer, according to employment site Monster.
But before you start submitting applications and spending that extra cash, here are a few things to consider:
Find the best fit for you. If you have an interest in crafting, you could create your own Etsy shop, said Monster career expert Vicki Salemi. "Consider things that you aren't necessarily thinking about like a (paid) focus group or DJ-ing on the weekends."
And remember that while some of these positions do not always offer steady income, "by doing side jobs you develop your muscle to hustle," Salemi said. Being able to multitask well is an asset you can carry over into other areas of your life, she said.
