Highest Paid Part Time Jobs in Canada
Computer Games Tester
Average Hourly Salary: $36.56
You got a computer, right? Why not use it to do something productive. Like why don’t you become a computer games tester? All you have to do is test out the games to see if they are working properly. It doesn’t sound too hard, but at least it’s something that can help your cause and earn you some cash while doing it!
And who doesn’t like playing computer games? All you need to do is play the game and find out if there are any bugs or not? If you do, it’s time to move on again after reporting.
Computer games tester does not sound too bad, right? But hey you are still a student so make sure that you work hard for this job!
Average Hourly Salary: $32.67
Believe it or not, there’s money in words. You can write on just about anything and get paid for it, including writing reviews of different products.
Are you passionate about technology? Then why not write reviews for the latest gadgets that will be released soon, is there really any job better than this one?
Of course, you need to know your stuff when it comes to writing about technology. You will have to write well-researched articles that are up to the mark. But don’t worry there’s a whole lot of super awesome websites out there who would be more than happy to pay you for your words- no seriously they would!
Pharmaceutical Sales Rep
Average Hourly Salary: $32.94
All you have to do is sell pharmaceuticals! No, if you think that it’s easy then think again. And guess what, it is one of the highest paid part time jobs in Canada.
You need to be very convincing and know how to convince people about their benefits which means you will need some basic knowledge of the product. This might sound easy but trust me there are over thousands of new drugs released every year, which means the competition is high too.
So yeah, you need to be smart and work your way up if you wanna earn a decent living by selling drugs!- good luck to you kid!
Average Hourly Salary: $24.14
Playing with toys and earning cash? Perhaps the world is an amazing place after all.
So I am not saying that you can become a toy demonstrator just like that. But there are companies out there who need people to test out their new products for them. Well it sure sounds better than working in a showroom.
So basically you will have to demo the toys and by doing so, you get paid for it.
Pretty cool right? Make a video of your techniques in a showroom and send it over to some companies!
Average Hourly Salary: $17.26
So you need a job, right? And you are not very picky about what kind of job to take up.
Well, receptionist jobs are basically where the buck stops here. You will have to do everything from greeting people at the entrance gate, to answering telephone calls and responding to emails. Basically, if something needs attention then you are the one who responds to it. This basically means that you need to be living at your desk- because your shift never ends!
It is tough work, but the pay isn’t bad either. And the fact that you are employed even if you are still in high school makes it easier for other kids like you to get good part-time jobs! Win-win!
Data Entry Clerk
Average Hourly Salary: $17.95
This is probably the easiest of all jobs (I can’t even call this a job). You will need to do something called data entry, where you take information and put it into the system.
That’s pretty much it! Except you won’t be paid well for this- at least not as good as playing games or writing articles.
And what will you be typing exactly? Oh nothing, just small things like social insurance numbers, addresses and stuff like that. It’s basically like writing down your name but in different boxes.
But hey every job has its pros and cons right? All you need to do is find out which works best for you.
Average Hourly Salary: $15.25
I am sure you know someone who is good at school and has scored well in exams, why not try tutoring them?
You will basically need to teach your pupil whatever you think might help- whether it’s about how to solve x maths problems or how to write a decent essay.
And for this you might get paid as much as $15.25 per hour! I am sure your friends would love to hear that they can make money by teaching their little sisters and brothers- isn’t it great being a kid these days?
Average Hourly Salary: $20.41
It’s always fun to promote something, whether it’s your own small business or a fast food joint.
And you will need to do that by promoting stuff like chocolates or even clothes (if you are into that sort of thing).
All you have to do is dress up nice and smart so potential buyers can see the product. This will basically help promote the product- well that’s how it works isn’t it?
But remember this is not a job for kids who are too shy to speak, you have to know what you are promoting so you can explain it to people.
It definitely helps if you are fluent in English or any other language, but either way this is an awesome part time job for kids!
Customer Service Representative
Average Hourly Salary: $18.45
You have been to many call centers, right? I am sure you have heard of the customer service reps on the other side of the phone.
Well, it definitely sounds better than being a telephone operator! In this case, you will be answering incoming calls from customers and responding to emails. Basically you would be handling their complaints. Well how do these people even get through to us anyway?
Well, you don’t need to worry about that (it’s computers). All you need to know is how to deal with frustrated people.
And the fact that every shift ends at a decent hour makes it a great part-time job!
Take a look around your place and see if there are any openings nearby- you might just be a shoo-in!
Average Hourly Salary: $27.18
Of course, there is a need for good editors who can make stuff sound interesting and keep people reading. And you have most probably been to an online news site before right? We all know how the articles are always so interesting with amazing pictures! Well an editorial assistant is the person who takes care of that.
You will be required to take interviews, write simple news pieces and edit existing material so it sounds amazing. And you wouldn’t believe how much work there is out there- so many people are waiting for you to read their stuff!
Doesn’t sound easy, does it? Well, fortunately, you don’t need to be a good writer, as long as you can tone down and make simple adjustments it should do the trick.
But remember that this is not a 9-5 job (that’s why they call it part-time)- so you have to work on weekends or at night! But since it is one of the highest paid part time jobs in Canada, you know how good it is.
What are you waiting for?
These jobs are amazing. But you need to be in Canada for that. And ForeignAdmits is going to help you ace it for you. Get the ball rolling and connect with us.
