How to Find Part-Time Jobs in Raleigh, North Carolina

By Christina Shaffer, eHow Contributor How to Find Part-Time Jobs in Raleigh,  North Carolina thumbnail

In 2010, Yahoo! Real Estate reported that Raleigh-Durham is the fastest-growing city in the nation. The flourishing population in Raleigh, North Carolina's state capital, is attributed partly to growing student populations at the area's universities, such as Duke and UNC Chapel Hill. Many businesses also are drawn to this area, since it is less expensive than most northeast metropolitan cities. Whether you're unemployed, looking to make a career change, or interested in generating supplemental income, there are a variety of methods to help you find a part-time job in Raleigh.

Things You'll Need

  • Resume
  • Newspapers
  • Internet access
  • Phone

Instructions

  • 1. Create a resume that includes your name, address, phone number, email address, objective, qualifications, prior work experience and references. If you have an existing resume, review it to make sure all of the information is up-to-date.

  • 2. Review the classified ads section in local Raleigh newspapers, such as "The News & Observer, " "The Triangle Business Journal" and "The Raleigh Telegram." Depending on the publication, current job openings may also be listed on the company's website. Use the "Keyword" field to filter results for part-time jobs in Raleigh.

  • 3. Check the North Carolina Office of State Personnel online job database if you're interested in a government position. The site has a direct link to current part-time job opportunities in different cities, including Raleigh.

  • 4. Research job openings by using online employment websites, such as Monster and CareerBuilder. Use the "Keyword" and "Location" fields to retrieve direct results for part-time positions in Raleigh. Most sites allow you to post your resume online for free.

  • 5. Contact local staffing agencies, such as Kelly Services or Todays Office, and ask a representative whether or not they have any current part-time job opportunities. Though many staffing agencies specialize in temporary and temporary-to-hire employment, some agencies also have part-time jobs available.

Tips & Warnings

  • Be sure that the phone number you provide on your resume has a voice mail set up. The message on your voicemail should sound professional, as you are trying to impress potential employers.

  • Have someone else double-check your resume for any spelling or grammatical errors. Your first impression is very important.
