Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

The job market, particularly in the tech sector, is volatile at the moment (to put it mildly), with many professionals worried about how they will make ends meet after being let go from high-paying positions and losing benefits. Worse yet, there’s increasing uncertainty about the availability of new positions, in part because hiring processes have slowed down due to longer interview structures.

But what if these professionals were able to start a business as a side hustle — to monetize what they already know from their old (or day) jobs? Many have doubtless long wanted to become entrepreneurs, and so this unpredictable time may also be the perfect one to creatively apply acquired education, experience and expertise.

These options for doing just that can help professionals make extra income while enhancing their personal brands.
