Part-time job plug

It’s imperative to elevate your thinking from making a rand moves in ten thousand different directions to just making more Rands. Let’s admit it, making a budget out of a meagre salary or sometimes not even having a source of income (which is not a distant reality for many young South Africans) is demoralizing. It limits the options you have and makes financial freedom an unrealistic thought for many.

While it is important to be faithful and responsible with the little we have, we should always seek more opportunities to increase our purchasing power. Covid-19 hasn’t made life any easier as well. An estimated 3 million people lost their jobs in 2020. From a macroeconomic perspective, this means that consumer demand will take quite some time to pick up. It also means that the prospect of find employment will be lower since firms won’t be needing (or rather can’t afford) more labour. But by good graces, some opportunities for employment remain.

We did some digging and we came up with a list of some part time opportunities and possible permanent vacancies that you should apply for this year. It may not be the opportunity that gives you the coins to buy that car you’ve been eyeing, but it’s definitely a side hustle that gives you the income boost you need.
