Life deals different people with different decks of cards. Specifically, some people are given a lot of time to play with in their daily life and some aren’t given any. Some are provided with the opportunity to go out for a number of hours a day in order to earn money and some are not. Basically, some people have the time to work and some do not — and no, this is not because of laziness! This could be because of caring responsibilities, for instance, such as being responsible for children or the elderly, or this could be because of certain aspects of life, such as disabilities, eating away at one’s time daily.
But, there are a number of jobs out there that those with little to no time on their hands can do without exceeding their daily allotment of spare time. To see just a few of these jobs, make sure to read on.
Data entry specialist
Data entry specialists are frequently described as being the invaluable link between information written down on paper and computer data.
Basically, what such a specialist does is find and take various pieces of written information, from various locations, and translate and transform it into electronic data. For instance, they would locate written information regarding specific outstanding bills and invoices that a business has yet to cash in or out on and they would then document it electronically or online so that it is easier to access for the business in the technology driven world of today. So, if you have the patience to be able to wade through countless pieces of information; if you have a good grasp of what most words mean, maybe even in a specific sector; if you are technologically capable; and if you are willing to ignore, as explained by idealmike, why it is so boring a job to have, then this could very well be the job for you. It could be the job for you because it would allow you to choose your own workload and subsequently your own working time frame.
Various roles in education
No, working in education doesn’t just mean becoming a teacher or someone else who works on a school’s premises daily. No, there are various roles in the education sector that you can do in your spare time, in your own time.
One such role is the role of the curriculum creator and writer. Simply, what such a person in such a role would do is assist specific educational institutions, such as schools, colleges and universities, to write up their lesson timetables for the educational year. Or, if you’re someone that would actually like to have a one-to-one, active and direct impact on the education of a young person, yet you still don’t have the time to devote your time to a school or a class of 30+ students, then you can become a private tutor. By doing so you would be able to spend as much or as little of your spare time as you wish because who you tutor and when you tutor would be completely on your terms. What’s more, you wouldn’t be expected to be tutoring for more than two hours (and even that’s at a push). However, if you do decide to take the private tutoring route, just make that you take your lack of time into account before committing to tutoring a student; if you begin tutoring a student and then, for whatever reason, can’t make the tutoring session then you may just ruin that student’s chance for educational success.
Freelancing in pretty much any sector
Freelancing, whether it be freelance copywriting, freelance virtual assisting or freelancing in any other sector is seemingly the way forward for not only people who have little time to work with during their day, but also for people that do have time on their hands. This is because, quite simply, freelancing can provide not only a stable financial life, but an affluent one! And, better still, most true freelancing roles allow those that wish to work in them the chance to bend their work around their schedule and not have it be the other way around.
So, there you have it. You now know that even though you don’t have much time to work with in your day, you can still work. Yes, you can still work and earn money without having to bend your very demanding and very tight schedule. And, this means two things: one is that you can ensure that your next job, no matter what job it is, is the best possible fit for you; another is that no matter how little you time you have in life, your standard of life need not drop below the minimum standard required.
