3. Call center executive

This job is perfect for people who like to talk!

If you do not have a problem talking on the phone for long periods of time, then you should definitely consider taking up a part time job at a call center.

There are so many call centers all over Bangladesh and with global outsourcing increasing daily, the industry is only growing each day.

Call center jobs are more routine and involve you contributing a chunk (a good 5/6 hours or more) of your time in an office environment.

The job is like any sales job but the interaction happens over the phone.

A call center executive typically has to obtain client information by answering telephone calls; interview clients, verify information, Inform clients by explaining procedures and answer questions, or provide information pertaining to any issues the client may be facing.

While the job is a little tedious and time consuming, it is perfect for people with service orientation and good people skills.

So if you are a passionate warm social individual be sure to apply to the next opening at a call center!

4. Teaching

Remember O’Levels / SSC days? I remember I used to go to tuition classes from mid-day to evening and at the end of the month my mother would hand me a big bundle of cash which I had to distribute among the teachers as fees.

But now that you are all grown up, you can be at the receiving end of that bundle of cash!

Simply keep an eye on the many tuition provider groups on Facebook or maintain a liaison with a tuition provider agency. They will match you with students in your preferred area of teaching and work days.

There are also many coaching centers where you can take up a job as a teacher. If you  have taken the IELTS or SAT exam, be sure to apply at coaching centers like Mentors, Saifurs etc for the position of an IELTS/ SAT instructor.

You can also leverage a skill you may have like coding, digital marketing, knowledge of special software like R, Python, SPPS and launch a structured course to teach that skill.

If you get a good response you can also digitize your course and offer it on a platform like Udemy and create a stream of passive income every time someone enrolls in your course while you sit back and enjoy your bank account growing.

5. Freelancing
