Whether you are a college student preparing for your post college career or in between jobs, a part time job is a great way to enhance your resume. Part time jobs are necessary for those who are looking for experience or income in their life. Here are part time jobs that can benefit your bank account and you’re your resume:
Bartending/Wait Staff: You may think that having a job in a bar is a bad thing because of the alcohol and party association but if written the correct way, this part time gig could really prove to your potential employer your commitment to a career. Bartending requires patience, multi-tasking, people skills and above all trust. A bar/restaurant trusts that you will handle cash appropriately and truthfully; mention these important key notes.
Related industry: Getting a part time job in your industry and field will show your future employer that you are serious about your potential career. Working part time hours will mostly have you working the same duties as the full time job and future employers know that. Don’t forget to offer references from that position. Also keep in mind that those part time jobs are great way to earn your way to a full time job with the same company.
Administrative: Any office position in a company that involves you taking on responsibilities and communicating in an office environment will show to your future employer that you are comfortable and capable of doing so in their office. Be sure to list out any projects and awards you may have received and carried out.
Volunteering: Some part time jobs do not pay and some people choose to volunteer in their city as a part time job. This signifies to employers that you are a hard worker and that money is not your main concern. You are technically spending your free time to better and assist an organizationwithout payment.
Treat your part time job as a real job on your resume, give it the same attention as you would with a full time and paid position. List out your title, as well as the duties and tasks that you performed while there. Be sure to include references and talk openly about your experience at that job. Sometimes your part time job can land you a great full time job. Happy resume building and good luck in your job search!
