Jump to section

So you lost your job. It can be hard to know exactly where to go from here But despite a general lack of clarity you may feel, one thing remains clear. You need income! Your job loss may have provided a severance package and you may qualify for unemployment benefits, however you will eventually need to get another job. If you’re looking for your next job right away, here are some great options to get you started depending on your needs.

I want a job with the highest hourly rate possible

Maybe you don’t have a lot of time to commit to a job right now, but still need to get the most out of the time you do spend working. Maybe you have kids at home that you need to care for, perhaps you have other responsibilities, or maybe you just need income while you spend time seeking the job you really want. Whatever your reasons, here are some jobs that offer a high rate of pay and a low time commitment so you can have time for everything you need to manage in your life after a layoff.
