Utilized as a means of earning extra income, pursuing a hidden passion or simply to keep busy, young professionals are taking on both resumé- and skill-boosting part-time jobs, moonlighting as a tutor, bartender, sales rep, freelance designer, startup queen or singer. While it’s an especially buzzy topic among millennials looking to find their place in today’s competitive market, the side hustle is fair game for anyone looking to make the most of their off-hours.
