9 Top-Paying Part-Time Jobs

These jobs pay anywhere from $10 to $300 an hour. Here’s what you need to know to land one.

Chances are you have a retirement savings gap — most Americans have saved less than $25,000.

Maybe you want to add a part-time gig to your day job to bring in extra income to help you close that gap — or to pay down debt.

Perhaps you need a part-time job to complement another part-time job to make ends meet, as more than 1 million Americans currently do, Bloomberg Business recently reported:

The share of the employed population working multiple part-time jobs for full-time hours has been rising for 11 of the past 12 years, reaching 0.78 percent in 2014, a record in two decades of data.

Fortunately, well-paying part-time work does exist. For example, CBS News has compiled the following list, calling these jobs “some of the most lucrative part-time jobs that also offer flexible hours.”
