Extra Income

July 18th, 2010 at 04:12 pm

I don't know what it is about newspaper delivery, but there isn't an opening that I've had a call back for yet! I did sign up to deliver phone books and I'm supposed to start with the info session this week. I also found on Craigslist an 11 week dental training course that will certify me as a dental assistant. I'm thinking that I could take that course, 11 Saturdays from 8-5pm, and then find work as a dental assistant on the weekends to begin paying off debt and help my income situation. The class costs $340 to hold the class and then $275 a month for a year. Is this a good plan or not? Spending money to make money. I've looked into giving plasma for $50 every 7 days, but didn't get the chance to do it yet. I haven't had a raise in my company since 2008.

    The total cost for the dental program is around $3600 for the year. How much does a dental assistant make? I would guess maybe $10-15/hr. So if you work only weekends, say 8hrs/weekend,you would have to work 6 months to 1yr just to make back what you have paid. You could probably get a fast-food job making minimum wage and start repaying your debts right away.

    If being a Dental Assistant isn't really your career goal...I wouldn't do it. It will just become another big monthly bill later on.
