Hello,
I was wondering if anyone could inform me of where to find good paying, part time work here in Louisville. I am looking for something that pays $10 per hour or more. I am looking for about 9-10 hours per week in the evening. Perhaps 3 hours per night 3 nights per week. I am trying to find something that will blend nicely with a full time job I have now.

I am a college graduate with a BA degree. My job history includes a variety of positions including 8 years of management experience (mostly in the service industry). I underwent a career change about 18 months ago and am working as a Certified Pharmacy Technician. I'm hoping to find something relatively soon.

Thank you.

johnsonkk, thank you.

I have explored careerbuilder and I do check it often. I am aiming to see if there is anything not publicized on a site like that. I have also tried louisvillehelpwanted.com and will give it another chance, but did not have much luck in finding a lot of options.

Hi Tom,
I'm not laughing. I have been intrigued by the real estate market, but was always under the impression that real estate was something that required full time hours. Is it possible to start part time in the industry?

don't laugh, but have you thought about Wal-Mart? pays about $9.50-$10/hr (at least they pay my mom $10/hr, and she just got a part time evening job with them....so far she's loving it!) It's just an option......

I used to work for Wal-Mart, and found that while it's not ideal, they will work with you on scheduling, you get an employee discount (10%, but it's better than nothing....although they may have done away with that for part timers......I'll have to ask Mom.), and if you go full time (30+ hrs/wk) they offer a benefits package. The work isn't hard--I've worked practically every department at some point or other--and it's a pretty relaxed atmosphere.

But then, I'm a pretty relaxed kind of gal.....not much fazes me.

The draw backs depend on which location you work at. I never had any dramas with them at all, and now because of that I am a religious Wal-Mart shopper whenever I'm home on holiday!

You are correct about the full time to professional success. I will assure you however that most any qualified individual who can make the cash investment to get licensed, join the MLS, etc, will achieve more income from their real estate activity than any other part-time job. More simply put, work 20 hours a week part-time you'll get about 150-200 max less taxes. Discipline yourself to work the same 20 hours every week in real estate, you can earn 25-50k per year (of course, less your taxes and business costs such as paper, fees, mailings and technology)

I have always used 10,000 hours (40hrs X 50 weeks=2000X5yrs equals professional success) As a part-timer, it may take 12,000 total hours.

tigerlilly, I'm not laughing at your suggestion either. I honestly had never considered Wal-Mart, but you do point out benefits that make it worth further investigation.

Tom,
I will have to take a deeper look into your suggestion. I can tell you that I never thought Real Estate was something a person could take on as a part-time profession. My main concern is the current economy and housing trends. As an insider, do you foresee a rebound in the market? Or, perhaps I am just assuming our local market is struggling as much as other markets around the country???

I am certain the market will return. I would be happy to discuss the opportunities, costs, etc with you.
