Whether you’re a parent, a student, or a professional looking to make a little extra cash, job seekers of every kind come to FlexJobs to find supplemental income jobs. These are the smaller, part-time or freelance jobs they do outside of their full-time roles (whatever those are!) that allow them to earn some income while still caring for family, attending school, enjoying retirement, or continuing with the job they love.
With the job market facing uncertainty, a supplemental job can also help you build up an emergency fund in case you’re concerned a layoff or furlough is coming your way, help you explore new careers, or provide an extra level of economic security in these uncertain times.
In the past, a side-hustle or second job might have required your in-person presence. Not so anymore! Remote supplemental income jobs that you can do from home are increasing available—and in far more fields than you might think.
Here’s What Some Members Have to Say About Finding Supplemental Income Jobs on FlexJobs
Heather H., Part-Time Customer Service Agent at EF- Education First
This site is awesome! I am a full-time teacher and needed to find a part-time job from home to work during the summer when school is out and to supplement my income during the school year. Within one month, I applied to several companies and had callbacks for at least ten! I turned down a few but ended up accepting two positions that allow me to work from home on my own schedule, and the pay is great! FlexJobs really does deliver what they say they will—thank you!
Martha G., Part-Time Research Associate at Hanley Wood
Thank you for providing such a great website for legitimate work-from-home opportunities. I needed a part-time job to supplement my income. After only 45 days or so of looking on FlexJobs, I found the perfect job! Now I have a 20-25-hour-per-week job I can do from my home, on my schedule. Thanks, FlexJobs!
Zachary B., Freelance Search Engine Evaluator at Appen
This is the second time my wife and I have used FlexJobs and have been successful in finding work. FlexJobs is an amazing resource, and we will definitely use it again and recommend it to others! FlexJobs allowed me to find a secondary source of income while continuing to work my full-time job. Thank you!
Shanika B., Part-Time Virtual Marketing Assistant at Equivity
I needed a part-time job to supplement my income that would allow me to utilize my creative and marketing skills. A flexible job allows me to be home when my kids get home, eliminating the need for daycare. Plus, I can work in an environment I am most comfortable in, which increases my well-being. FlexJobs is worth the investment.

Emily G., Senior Finance Manager at the University of Chicago
My husband and I are saving for our dream home. I decided to look for a flexible job to supplement my income and speed up the savings process. FlexJobs makes it easy to find a side job and make a little extra cash outside of my full-time career. Extra money means I can save for things I want faster, travel more, and treat myself to things I may not have been able to purchase before. It also allows me to add additional skills to my resume.

Kelli W., Freelance Writing Tutor at Brainfuse
I was looking for a flexible job while considering my next career move. I didn’t want to commit to a full-time job, so I started seeking additional income that would fit my schedule. This flexible job allows me to be in control of my schedule and use the hours outside of my other job more productively. When I need to earn more income, I can work more.
Vincent C., Contractor at Crawford Media Services
My wife and I made the decision for her to stay home while our children went through their early years. This meant losing the income she’d provided via her job. I was in need of a way to bring in extra income while not being out of the house and away from my family all the time with two jobs. FlexJobs gave me that opportunity. I found a part-time job that I enjoy, and I get to do it from my home office. For that, I’m grateful.

Richard M., Part-Time Customer Service Rep at TTEC
I’m a below-knee amputee and have recently had issues with my prosthesis but no financial resources to rectify them. I can still work, and working from home will provide discretionary income for a healthier diet and the ability to save. I can choose the schedule I prefer, as well as the range of hours I want to work. There are so many disabled adults who feel like they can no longer earn and/or contribute, but work-at-home positions can really enable them to enjoy life again.

Heidi D., Teacher at VIPKID
After being out of the education field for 11 years to raise my four children, I was looking for a job that would give me at-home flexibility while allowing me to use my talents and training as a teacher. I found my new job within three days of signing up with FlexJobs, and it has been exactly what I had hoped for. I now teach children online before my children are awake. I am so pleased with my FlexJobs experience! Thank you!
