In a developing country where people are almost always on the look-out for new opportunities to better support their families, extra income sounds as good as Christmas gifts and bonuses. Whether or not your daytime job leaves you struggling to pay the bills and rent, working sidelines is something mid-earners should at least try at some point in time.
Hence, amp up your savings or get that beautiful, pricey dress you’ve been lusting over by working part time
1. Thou shalt teach English online.
Philippines is one of the six English-speaking countries in Asia. Teaching English online to foreign countries like Japan and Korea is one of the best part time jobs today thanks to the internet. Basically, you need a PC, a stable internet connection, headphones, and of course, above average English skills. Online teachers get paid for P90-P120 per hour. Not bad. Work in the comfort of your home while learning other countries’ culture, and getting paid at the same time!
2. Thou shalt take part in online surveys.
The world of internet is truly magical. Ever heard of getting paid for participating in surveys? This is not your usual survey where you answer long-winded questionnaires and getting nothing in return. More often than not, paid surveys get emailed to you, and you get paid by completing the survey. The payment varies and largely depends on the length of the survey.
3. Thou shalt sell photos.
Got the camera and skills for capturing the best of photographs? Get paid while doing your passion for photography! There are different ways on how and where to sell your photos: sell stock photos, sell photos to magazines or sell through posting online on your social media accounts. For more credibility, creating your own site or portfolio would be great to attract buyers.
4. Thou shalt be a freelance writer.
