To get you started, here are 5 websites where you can find a bunch of people looking to hire your errand services.

Door Dash

Door Dash is an on-demand restaurant delivery service.  So your task is to pick-up your customer’s order from a restaurant or food chain and deliver it to them.  To become a dasher, you must have your own vehicle or bicycle.  If you are familiar with Uber, it’s basically an Uber for food orders.

This platform is geared towards the student workforce.  The company aims to help struggling students by giving them an opportunity to earn extra money at their own pace and time.  “Missions” vary from typing jobs to other web tasks, store pick-up to deliveries, distributing flyers to a holiday party security guard.

We Go Look

If you have a passion for grocery shopping (yes, some have… including me), turn that into a money machine by working for Instacart.  Your role is to shop and deliver groceries to people who are way too busy to get their own groceries.  You get to schedule your work around your own life, have fun shopping (that doesn’t involve your money) and get paid for it.

There’s no reason to sit on the couch all day and complain that looking for job is hard.  As long as you have the perseverance to make a living, the options are endless.
