13 Part-Time Jobs That Actually Pay A Ton Of Money – Forbes Now

More Americans are choosing to step outside of a traditional 9-5 job in favor of working on their own terms. And according to data from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, this means more and more of us are choosing to only work part-time roles, which are defined as a job requiring fewer than 35 hours of work each week.
It’s important to note that the bureau found that the majority of part-time workers, who now comprise about 17% of the total U.S. workforce, are doing so out of choice, rather than necessity. It’s not because people can’t find full-time work but are simply choosing to spend only part of their life working and the other part actually living.
And believe it or not, there are plenty of part-time jobs out there that can help you not only pay the bills but save for retirement, too.
“There are a number of extremely valid reasons that workers seek out part-time employment, such as taking care of young children, health issues, caregiving for a parent, phasing into retirement, or simply seeking a better work-life balance for all of the normal chaos many of us juggle,” Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs, said in a statement.
To illustrate her point Fell pointed to a recent survey by Flexjobs of more than 5,000 workers that found more people reported being interested in a part-time schedule (46%) than being interested in freelance work (39%).
“In the past 10 years, we’ve seen a significant growth in the depth and variety of opportunities for professional part-time jobs at the higher career levels, despite the misconception that part-time positions can’t be available at the senior manager or C-suite level,” Fell added. “This is a welcome shift, as part-time work has the advantage of providing professionals with the ability to maintain their skills and industry knowledge without vastly decreasing their income or committing to a full-time schedule.”
To demonstrate the variety of high-paying jobs that don’t require a full-time schedule, FlexJobs shared thirteen roles with part-time schedules for experienced workers to consider.
