Your Two Cents: How Many Jobs Do You Have?

Working from 9-5 hasn't been an accurate depiction of our weekdays for some time, and it's even less relevant in this economy. Besides putting in overtime at your day job, picking up another gig can be the best way to get ahead financially. How many jobs are you working?

I'm currently unemployed and would love to have a job. But have worked a full time job and part time job. Right now I'd love to be there again.

I have one 8:30 to 4:30 job and I'm looking for a part-time job to make some extra cash.

my 9-5 office job pays the bills then i moonlight as a cocktail waitress for spending money, it's fun but the late night/early morning thing can be a bit much

I am very committed to my "main job" and still have a second one. It's entirely possible. I just stay at my main job late during the week so I can be sure to get everything done and I don't have to worry about bringing any work home. Sure, I don't get to go out as much as I would like, but it's nice to have the extra money, I still have a decent social life, and I enjoy working.

I have one, but would probably like to snag an part time job to make some extra cash (that way I can just use my part time money to spend and save all of my full-time job money). Hopefully something with animals (I used to be a vet's assistant and the money wasn't great but I loved it and it was only 1 day a week and sometimes some evenings). But I'm really thankful I actually have at least one full time job.

I wish I can take another one, but I choose to stay committed to my only job right now. I'd go freelance if the gigs I get are different from my job, preferably anything that doesn't require me to write.

none... I'm a student and that's enough for me

Five jobs: my own business, full-time job, part-time teaching, and then three other "gig-based" jobs. Then there are the jobs I'm not paid to do...

One job - a 9-5 type in an office. During the summer we have shorter hours and a bunch of time off (I work in a private k-12 school, fund raising) - so I'm considering getting an exrta part time job over the summer to make some extra cash. I'm hoping there will be some available.

One. I'm a 9-5er in an office. And, I am very thankful for having a job. I don't think I will be able to have a part time job. I have a little doggy at home waiting for me. Not fair for him to have to stay home alone.

I am down to just 2 jobs right now (1 full time, one part time) plus I do a lot of babysitting and house sitting and I go to school part time. Between late 2007 and mid 2008 I had 4 jobs (all part time) plus the baby sitting and house sitting and going to school full time - that was rough!

One! Bartending is a pretty great gig, I can support myself on three and a half days a week. I can't wait to find a job that has room for me to work five days a week! :)

I would have two if I could actually FIND another one! I'm grateful to still have the one though.

One full-time job and I baby-sit once a week.
lilkimbo lilkimbo 8 years
Right now, one full time and one part time. I'm hoping to go to grad school in the fall (or possibly the summer), at which time I might cut out the part time job. More likely than not, I will probably just cut back on hours at the part time job and work maybe one day a week there, just for extra money.

I'm a student, but I have a lot of jobs - I just don't get paid for any of them. They like you to be VERY experienced but VERY poor in grad school. :(
