Good day all. I am in need of a little bit of help with brainstorming some ideas on possible jobs I could look into from some of the people in the forum.

A little background on me. I have 5+ years working with children as a substitute paraprofessional in NYC Department of Education, mainly children with special needs.

Working as a sub my income fluctuates, there also times when I work but dont get paid until weeks after due to payroll.

Also I am not a sub by choice every paraprofessional has to start that way and basically as subs we have no control over whether or not we are hired it is based on the budget and the needs of principal. With that said I need a second job that is stable as a source of supplemental income.

I am open to any suggestions. I am looking for an evening hours (4 o'clock or later M-F) and/or weekend job.

I figured a job working with children would be all I could do because my resume reflects that as my most recent experience and I have 5+ years exp in it. My employment prior to that was working as an office assistant at in a college 5+ years ago.

Thank in advance for thoughts and help, it is greatly appreciated.

There are plenty of evening jobs--anything in a restaurant, tour bus guide, night security guard, stock crew in a retailer, parking enforcement, hotel front desk staff. I don't think you need to limit yourself to jobs related to your day job.
