Four Most Available and Highest-Paying Part-Time Jobs

highest-paying part-time jobsPart-time jobs can be hugely beneficial when your full-time job isn't netting the cash you need each month to live off of, or you're just trying to make ends meet until you snag the next full-time gig. But sometimes job seekers unknowingly uncover the holy grail of part-time jobs -- the ones that pay enough dough to allow you to work part time and reap the salary benefits of a full-time job.

We've uncovered the top paying, and most widely available, part-time jobs. Read 'em and weep (because they're not staffed by you).

1. Yoga/Pilates Instructor

Looking for a way to stay in shape and make some cash at the same time? Being a part-time yoga or pilates instructor can be hugely beneficial and - once you're established - can generate a nice income. Interested parties need to become certified, which is easy to do in your off hours through a certified studio. Once certified, instructors can make anywhere from $20-$40 an hour for classes to sometimes $100 hour for private sessions.

2. Executive Language Coach

Tutoring another language part-time can yield decent pay - especially in more metropolitan areas where it's not unheard of to charge $40 for an hour long one-on-one session in a coffee shop. But the real jackpot is getting contracted to work with large companies that need to give their executives a base of a foreign language for business purposes. Obviously you'll need to be fluent in another language, but to get the really lucrative jobs you'll need to have a legitimate language certification - preferably a business language certification. Gaining a contract with an individual company to teach their employees certain foreign language business basics can net you anywhere from $25 to $60.

3. Contract Copywriter

Hourly pay typically ranges from $30/ hour to $100/ hour for skilled and experienced copywriters. Many of the highest-paying positions are for copywriters in the health and pharmaceutical industries, so if you have experience in the life sciences industry, consider yourself ahead of the game.

4. Massage Therapist

Granted, this is a job where you need specialized training and certification. But if flexibility in your work environment is the light at the end of your tunnel, this is a good career path to go down. Once certified, a massage therapist branching out on his or her own can make between $40 and $100 an hour. While a massage therapist working in a spa or fitness facility will usually bring in anywhere from $20 to $60 per hour.
