    Default What's the word for second job?

    If somebody has a full time job from 9 to five and also have a different job in the evening to make a living. Do we say he has a second job or sub occupation? What is the word for that?

    "Has a second job" works. Sometimes it is called "moonlighting". He moonlights tending bar in the city.
