Do you live in Omaha, Nebraska, and find that you are looking for ways or places to make a bit of extra money? Below are some suggestions for you to consider.

*Get a job during the College World Series.

Each summer, the biggest collegiate event in college baseball comes to Omaha - the College World Series! Currently contracted to be hosted in Omaha through 2035, the College World Series draws thousands of tourists to town each year.

If you are looking for some extra cash, then scout for a job during this event. First of all, consider working concessions at Rosenblatt Stadium. You could also explore options for jobs parking cars for the event.

Given the extra crowds, local restaurants in the area often hire extra help during the tournament. You can more than likely find options helping bus tables or working in the kitchen at a variety of places.

Hotels may also be looking for additional seasonal help, as many will be filled to capacity. Be creative and you are sure to find some good options during this peak time.

* Babysit for neighbors and friends.

Babysitting is always a great way to make extra money. Even though times are tough, couples still have events to attend: weddings, business events, anniversary dinners and the like.

During these times, they will need someone to watch over their kids. Babysitting is ideal for teenagers and others who enjoy looking after children.

*Work at the zoo.

Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo is the largest tourist attraction in the state of Nebraska. Each summer, part-time jobs become available to handle the influx during the peak season.

Go online to find contact information for job opportunities. This zoo is a large one, and there are likely plenty of opportunities for those who enjoy the zoo environment.

* Wait tables in Old Market.

Old Market is the city's largest entertainment district. It is densely populated with bars and restaurants. Given that the hospitality industry is known for frequent turnover, then waiting tables is a good option for extra cash.

Lots of people moonlight at restaurants in the evenings or on the weekends. It's a good way to bring in some extra cash, and it can be a lot of fun to work in a restaurant part-time.

These are just a few ideas for making more money if you live in Omaha, Nebraska. As this is the state's largest city, there should be plenty of options.

When looking for part-time jobs, you may want to frequently check the Jobs section of Craigslist. Many people post odd jobs and contract positions on this site. While you need to use common sense when applying for jobs, there are many legitimate opportunities to be found here.
