If your benefits are about to end, consider finding a transitional job, which can almost help pay the bills. This may not be your dream job, but you can continue to look for more suitable jobs. Due to the general recruitment shortage, you may find that even low-wage odd jobs are paid better than in the past.

If you are not ready to leave home, whether because of COVID-19 concerns or out of caregiving duties, try looking for an online job. Although some opportunities require a high level of expertise, there are still plenty of entry-level remote jobs available.Penny hoarders have a censored portal Work from home job opportunities.

When you are looking for your next full-time job, try to earn extra income from your side business. Uber and Lyft drivers are now in great demand.

You may also find that with the return of some sense of normalcy, some side jobs, such as pets and housekeeping, are in greater demand.
