Side Hustles for Gen Z Job Seekers

It has become apparent that Gen Z is a completely different type of job force than Millennials. Of course, folks were saying that about Millennials a few years ago as well. As part of Gen Z, though, you have a lot of great things going for you.

You are driven, motivated and focused when it comes to earning money and earning it in a way that you are comfortable with. This is why Gen Z is all about the side hustle. You can earn money on your time and on your terms. Here are three great side hustles for Gen Z job seekers. 

Door Dash

Door Dash is a really flexible employment/service app that allows people to have just about any food from any restaurant delivered to their doors. Restaurants that never offered delivery service are now available through Door Dash. Door Dash employs anyone over 18 with a valid driver's license and insurance. This is a great side hustle for young Gen Z job seekers who want to set their own hours and earn money. 

Freelance Writing/Proofreading

If you have awesome grammar skills and don't mind working at the computer, this is a great side hustle. Many people have turned this side hustle into a full-time career. There are hundreds of online platforms which exist only to create content for use online. These platforms need writers and proofreaders. In most cases, you can land one of these gigs by passing a simple grammar quiz and creating a writing sample. 

Pet Sitting/Baby Sitting

This is still one of the best old school side hustles. People want their pets and their children (not necessarily in that order) properly cared for while they are otherwise occupied. Market yourself in your community to offer these services. 

Side hustles are the money-making vehicle of this generation. These are just three ideas to get you started in the right direction.
