Let’s face it, inflation is beating us up. For me, it’s an extra $50 a month for health insurance, the cable and internet bill doubled and home owners insurance is about to make my mortgage payment go up. I just don’t know how much, yet. Could be hundreds a month. And let’s not forget, you gotta eat. Publix put the Chicken Tender Sub on sale and today’s sale price is about the same as last year’s regular price. This is not fun. Jobs In Florida don’t come with the pay increases needed to keep up with inflation.

Add in the fact that our area in Southwest Florida took a huge hit from Hurricane Ian and a lot of businesses down here simply don’t exist anymore. So much for picking up some part time hours. So where can you find a little extra income to help make ends meet? This falls into the category of “I don’t need a different job, I need another job.”

I found a decent amount of these types of jobs on flexjobs. There’s a wide variety of skills these companies are looking for, so maybe something fits you.

So what do you need for these Jobs In Florida?

Just checking a few of these it looks like they want you to have a dedicated work space. Some ask that you have an ethernet cable plugged in to your computer and not wifi. Do some research, everything starts off with having a good resume. And not all of these will be exactly what you’re looking for. Maybe none of them are. But this should get you a good start. I picked out one or two of the jobs available for each listing, but there’s always more. Good luck!
