Why part-time jobs?
Part time jobs are for those looking to cash in on their spare time or those who cannot afford to work outside of their homes and wish to maintain a work-life balance. It appeals to anyone from home-makers and students to full-time working professionals.
Tailoring your resume to suit your job
Whether you’re applying for a home-based online job like content writing or an outdoor job like a visiting teacher, you need to customize your resume according to the job criteria. For instance, if you’re an already experienced professional applying for a part-time job that is different from your current trade, you cannot present your existing resume that projects your current skills and expertise. You may keep the template of your original resume but will need to tailor the contents to be as relevant as possible to the job you’re applying for.
Be specific of your work constraints
Be clear in your resume that you’re seeking a part-time job to avoid confusions later. If you prefer to work only for a certain time-frame, make it clear as well. Additionally, any previous experience as a part-time worker and your efficiency in the role can be referenced for an added value.
