More and more people are learning that a successful career isn't dictated by the hours you put into it. According to a new report by job search portal CareerCast, part-time work is on the rise.

"While most people would rather have a full-time job with salary and benefits, steady part-time work and temporary assignments are good ways to generate income," says Tony Lee, publisher at CareerCast.

To determine  the best part-time jobs   in the U.S.,  CareerCast examined four broad factors:   the job's environment, stress factors, median hourly wage, and projected growth through 2022. 

It turns out that accountant and construction manager are among the best-paying and fastest-growing part-time jobs in America, each with median hourly wages above $30 and plenty of projected openings over the next decade.
