How to Find Jobs in Your Area? Local Part Time Jobs Search Guide

If you’re looking for a part time job in your area, I assume you are a teen, college student, stays at home mom, or a retiree. If you are none of them, you must be looking to make some extra money after your full time job then.

Well, whatever is the case, local job search process is same for all. In order to better find local jobs, you must know that nature of part time job is different than that of full time and so the search process. Let’s see how to find local jobs in your area efficiently:

Offline Search (Apply in Person):

Depending on your country, you might not agree with me (as Employers’ perspective & thinking depend a lot on the local trends), but in here in US, applying in person is a great way to go. Believe me it works better than any other medium, you just need to do it rightly. And yes, the offline process works best for retail and food industry.

You must not use the same resume as you do for searching a full time job, rather prepare an alternative version focusing your skills, abilities and experience; be precise and do not make it lengthy. Print multiple copies and get ready.

Having a bunch of resume copies, go to the super stores/grocery stores, or whichever type of local business you want to work for. While being on job hunt, you will notice many of them will have ‘Help Needed’ type of signs on windows. Drop your resume there for sure, else if you do not find any such sign, it’s always good to step inside and inquire if they need someone or not!

Search Online:

A huge number of employers post part time jobs online and these are mostly from the services industry. So in case if you are looking for part time data entry, writing, design & development or payroll type of job, opt for online search and do not go for the option mentioned above. Depending on your country, the job sites may differ and you can always find most of the job sites by searching ‘jobs in ‘your country’.

Well, here I am mentioning the best job sites for US:

  • Careerbuilder.com
  • Simplyhired.com
  • Snagajob.com
  • Monster.com
  • Craigslist.com
  • Coolworks.com
  • Indeed.com

Besides these websites, you can also look for work on freelance websites (which of course work worldwide). Some best ones are:

  • Elance.com
  • Getacoder.com
  • Freelancer.com
  • Guru.com
  • Odesk.com
