Warning Be careful about accepting work that isolates you from others. Step 1: Check out free listings Check out the employment gazettes that can be found among the free newspaper stands in big cities. They often advertise short-term positions. Step 2: Visit a temp agency Sign up with a temp agency that specializes in day work. Step 3: Find seasonal work Look for seasonal work, either on farms during harvest time or with merchants who might be overwhelmed during holidays. Step 4: Investigate big events Check with the Chamber of Commerce or Tourist Information Center to see if there are any upcoming events, like a county fair or a music festival, that might require extra help. Step 5: Swing by swap meets Stop by swap meets and flea markets and offer your services helping vendors set up and break down. Step 6: Head to a resort area Check out the nearest resort area. Hotels and restaurants in those areas often need help because of the transitory nature of their employees. Tip If you're in an area that's popular with boaters, arrive at the docks early in the day and see if you can pick up some cash helping to wash down a boat. Step 7: Spread the word Strike up conversations wherever you go and mention that you're looking for day labor. You never know who may need a hand—or knows someone who does. Did You Know? Route 66, popular with U.S. road trippers before the Interstate highway system was built, crosses eight states and three time zones.
