    Work sideline

    - You have a major job on weekdays, and you want to have an extra job on weekends, in this situation you have to say like this?

    "I work as an accountant on weekdays and I work my sideline as a restaurant manager on weekends"

    Thank you very much, Teachers

    Dear Teachers!

    - Is this sentence more natural?

    "I work as an accountant in the daytime, and I work my sidejob as a cashier at night"

    Thank you very much

    And if someone 'forgets' to pay taxes on their second job or shouldn't be doing the job, they can say that they moonlight as a cashier.
