Though the base pay is low, tips can add up. Bartenders can work off-hours, which allows for the option of a second job, according to CareerCast.

The American labor force has steadily shifted from full-time employment to part-time and free lance work. These types of jobs can bring flexibility but they also bring insecurities.

"While most people would rather have a full-time job with salary and benefits, steady part-time work and temporary assignments are good ways to generate income during slow hiring periods," Tony Lee, publisher of CareerCast, said in a press release.

Temporary jobs can be great for professionals with experience in a specialized field who want to work full-time but for limited periods, according to CareerCast.
