  • Top 10 Part Time Jobs That Ethiopians Don’t Know About

    hat do you do at your spare time? Do you think all the wealthy people you see these days make their wealth by concentrating only on one source?


    It is very difficult to only concentrate on one source for your wealth. You need something to do at your spare time that could still fetch you some money.

    There are also people out there who don’t have any job at all. As you search for your career job, you can simply just browse through the list of jobs down here and pick one for yourself.

    You can make a that spare time profitable even before you find your career job.

    Time is money and this is the time you should convert all that your spare time into a very good money.

    Here is the list of Top 10 Well Paying Part Time Jobs That Will Boost Your Wealth. The ranking was done based on the amount of money you can make out of each field of work.

    10. Freelance Web Designer

    Almost everybody wants to start a website of some type but most people lack the skills to make it happen.

    9. Freelance Writer

    The Internet has opened up all kinds of opportunities to write on a freelance basis. There are millions of websites and blogs, and many of them need content to drive traffic.

    8. Video Game Player

    Plenty of people play video games for fun, but you can actually do it for profit too. In fact, website e-Sports Earnings has actually created a list ranking the top 100 players based on earnings.

    Professional gamers earn money by winning contests and streaming their games, allowing them to earn sponsorships, reports Business Insider.

    7. Contractor

    This is one of the jobs I have not heard anyone talk about so far.

    It is more like linking unemployed people to available jobs.

    You go round and look for all unemployed people looking for employment and register them with terms of agreement, Which involves a percentage of their salary on whichever job you get them.

    6. Voice-Over Artist

    This isn’t necessarily a career that many people link with self-employment but it is definitely a part time job. As with many jobs in the entertainment industry, being a voice-over artist involves building a personal brand and finding your own work.

    Companies, including big names like Apple, contract out voice work to entrepreneurs like Susan Bennett, the voice behind the iPhone’s Siri.

    You can still sell this service on Fiverr or any freelancing website and make money at your spare time.

    5. Dropshipping

    Dropshipping is one of the most simplest and simplest job online that could make you a fortune.

    Drop-shipping is like selling an item that you don’t own online. Or should I say retailing but in this case the vender doesn’t keep the goods.

    4. Online Freelancing

    Online Freelancing is also one of the things I have not heard of people doing in this country.

    There are so many websites where you can go and register, sell a service or products.

    The best part is you can start this with no skill and no capital. You can do everything on your mobile phone from the comfort of your home.

    3. Bitcoin

    Bitcoin is one big game. February 2011, 1 Bitcoin was equal to USD $1. As at the time I’m writing this article, 1 Bitcoin is equal to USD $3,754.55.

    So if you are able to keep 1 Bitcoin from 2011 till now, you could probably make a fortune out of it.

    2. Video Blogging

    The YouTube videos you watch, someone gets paid anytime you watch them. Never seen much of video bloggers here yet.

    This is a perfect part time job which will help you and still give you a lot of fun. All those small scenes you come across when you are out can actually make you a fortune.

    1. Content blogging

    Ever heard of blogging? Its a self made business that makes you earn more money than you can think of when done right.

    An average blogger earns as much as USD $20,000 per month.

  • No Problems In Oil Supply Says EPSE Despite Qeeroo Threats

    The Ethiopian Petroleum Supply Enterprise (EPSE) has tried to ease concerns over the shortage of oil in its most recent announcement. Ato Tadese Hailemariam, CEO of EPSE has announced that pile-ups observed in the capital’s fuel stations are not due to supply shortages but rather based on fears stemming from Qeeroo’s blockade threats.

    Qeeroo has been very active on social media, calling for protests and boycotts all over the country. Its latest activism focused on the blockade of oil transporting vehicles coming into the country. The group has warned that it will take action to disrupt the import of petroleum and drivers and car owners who continue their work will do so at “their own risk”.


    This has prompted the government to provide extra precautions and offer safe passage to tank trucks. To this end, the Command Post has assigned security personnel to travel along with the trucks on their transportation routes.

    Deutsche Welle reports the CEO of EPSE stated that a few drivers who were anxious over Qeeroo threats caused some delay in the transport of petroleum. They have been raising insurance related questions to the government which seems unperturbed by the Qeeroo threats.

    Ato Tadesse claims the drivers of the trucks have since continued working the usual supply routes, perhaps comforted by the added security. Ato Tadesse also spoke of recent efforts to provide better insurance coverage to the owners and operators of oil transporting tank trucks.

    According to DW, the daily national demand for benzene stands at 1.5 million liters. “This amount is already available in the market and there have been no oil supply shortages encountered so far,” said Ato Tadesse.
    For more, listen to Deutsche Welle’s report.

  • Ethiopia’s year-on-year inflation rises to 15.6 pct in February


    Addis Ababa, March 7, 2018 (FBC) - Ethiopia’s year-on-year inflation increased to 15.6 percent in February from 13.4 percent in January, said the Central Statistical Agency (CSA) of Ethiopia.

    According to a statement agency sent to FBC today, the prices of most of the major cereals showed a slight increase during the month under review. In addition, the prices of pulses, vegetables and fruits rose to some extent.

    However, the prices of salt and spices (especially pepper whole) showed unexpected two fold price rises in a span of only one month that contributed to the inflationary trend observed. The prices of meat, milk, and cheese and eggs showed a decline, it said.

    The non-food inflation also increased during the month under review mainly due to rise in the prices of chat, clothing and footwear, housing repair and maintenance, energy (charcoal), household goods and furnishings and health care, among others.
