The new year is often tantamount with resolutions, goals and hope for a good year, personally and professionally. One way to make those hopes a reality is to improve your financial situation.

But how can that happen when so many people are getting laid off and companies are cutting budgets, bonuses and salary increases?

One way to boost your bank account is to take on a part-time job, which is defined as a position that requires working fewer than 35 hours per week, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. There are currently 25.5 million part-time workers, according to the BLS. In November 2008, the number of people who worked part time for economic reasons, meaning that they would like to work full time but couldn't because their hours had been cut back or because they were unable to, rose to 7.3 million.

The following part-time jobs are predicted to have substantial job growth or have a large number of available job openings.
