Who doesn’t want some extra cash?
Living in a major Canadian city doesn't come cheap, and it feels like the cost of living just keeps going up. Fortunately, there’s a bunch of flexible part-time jobs in Calgary that give you the opportunity to earn up to $25 per hour.
From online tutoring to decorating, these Calgary side hustles could be the best way to make sure you have money for the things you want and will fit around your regular schedule.
Decor And Event Assistants
Salary: Up to $18 per hour
Company: Jacqueline Rae Weddings Events Interiors
Who Should Apply: If you love weddings, this gig may be for you. Responsibilities will include moving and unloading signage and chairs, setting and styling tables, and finalizing decor to perfection. The company has listed the job as available for “part-time, casual, and seasonal” employees but asks for some weekday and weekend availability from May to October 2022.
Press Release Writer
Salary: Up to $30 per hour
Who Should Apply: If you have a way with words and impeccable grammar, why not try your hand at writing press releases? The company will give you the training that you need to get started. The best thing is there are no expectations on how much you commit to. It’s completely up to you.
Salary: Up to $25 per hour
Company: Click Maids Inc.
Who Should Apply: There’s nothing more satisfying than a spotless home. So if cleaning is your jam and you have at least a year of experience, this is the job for you. Click Maids also sends cleaners in teams of two so it could be a great opportunity to rope in a buddy who’s also looking for some extra cash.
Salary: Up to $240 per day
Company: Landscapers By Nature
Who Should Apply: Calgary gets its fair share of snow so if you’re up for the challenge of getting rid of snow from condo complexes and you have some decent winterwear, this is the side hustle for you. It’s daytime-only work but there’s a fully flexible schedule so you can pick when you can work.
Online Writing Tutor
Salary: $16 per hour
Who Should Apply: If you’ve got any experience in tutoring, this side hustle involves reading through students' written work and providing feedback. You need to be able to “give clear, concise, and constructive feedback without proofreading.” Hours are fully flexible and you can read as much or as little as you want.
