Trying to make some extra cash? Have free time you don't know what to do with? Trying to develop or hone a new skill? You should consider getting a side job.

To qualify for the list, each job had to be considered flexible (and not full time), and had to pay at least double the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour.
