Good morning, Benjamin.

Depends on where in the world you are.

In the US, such jobs have become relatively few and far between, and
what jobs there are are usually full time.  There are ways you can
find the few such jobs there are, but again we'd have to know where in
the world you are.

Hi Eric,

First Thank you very much for your response. I also have to say sorry
for missing some information.
I am in toronto, and I'd just like to get some extra bucks by
moonlighting to support the family. I am also not sure if there is any
luck to get a part-time work from our southern neighbor.

thanks again.

I'm sorry to say I don't know anything about the market in Canada.

As far as how you find work, I've been consulting for over 30 years
and I haven't figured the marketing part of it out yet.  It's a lot of
networking and cold calling and all that stuff that I'm no good at.
Consequently, all of my work comes from either word of mouth from
happy clients, or from agencies who specialize in placing contractors.
The agency work is virtually exclusively full-time and usually on-site
at the client location (although, after you get in there, you can
often negotiate the on-site part).  In addition, the agencies by and
large tend to gouge the hell out of both the contractors and the
clients. often charging the client a 50 percent markup or more, on top
of the contractor's rate, for doing no more than putting contractor
and client together and doing some minor administrative stuff like
handling payroll.

There are sites like sologig.com that claim to be able to put
contractor and client together for a lot less, but so far I'm not real
impressed.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help...
