I'm interested in job search strategies for jobs within the afternoon or evening time frames. I've tried searching indeed for terms like, "afternoon, evening, 2nd shift, swing shift, etc.," but the results seem to be very mixed at best. I haven't had a lot of luck with flexjobs either. More broadly, I guess I'm interested in any full-time job with "flexible hours", as well (such that I can work afternoon/evening).

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, I'm very open and I have worked in a few different industries, so I didn't want to restrict it beyond "general strategies". But suggestions of industries or specific jobs to consider is also helpful, thank you. Afternoon and evening jobs seem surprisingly difficult to come by.

Say you've identified a specific direction to look into, like child care. What would be the suggested approach for finding afternoon or evening child care jobs?

On job sites, you just have to use search terms.


You could be a care provider if you don't have a criminal background. Seniors and disabled people get paid by the government for in home care. You can register as a care giver with IHHS. Seniors and disables care givers often need help 24/7. There are also agencies who also act as employers. Find them and tell them you will take afternoon and evening shifts.

You might have better luck applying in person, at places that have high turnover and need for workers at that time. That would include fast food and other restaurants, retail especially gas station and other convenience stores, and custodian work. Almost all school districts are looking for "substitute" custodians to clean in the evenings and you can accept or reject the work depending on where and when it is. Most childcare facilities are closed after 6-7pm.
