MILWAUKEE — As the city of Milwaukee prepares for the Democratic National Convention, there are a few things you can do to make a few extra dollars.

While the DNC won't be as big as previously expected due to COVID-19, it is still expected to bring people to Milwaukee and surrounding cities.

With extra people in town, companies may be hiring a little extra help - companies like Uber, Lyft, Doordash, and others.

Jobs within these companies can be a quick and easy way to make a few dollars, and a way to meet new people who are in town for the DNC.

Have a car in Milwaukee? Are you outgoing? Do you love meeting new people? Then maybe you should consider being a driver for Uber and Lyft. As Uber says, you can "be your own boss."

With companies like Uber and Lyft, you can drive all around Milwaukee, see the sights, and meet new people. All from the comfort of your own vehicle. Even if you don't have a car, Uber and Lyft can help you out.

Both Uber and Lyft pay based off of how far and how long you drive. Rates vary based on city, as well as how often you drive.

Not only will there be an increase in people, but likely an increase in food delivery as well.

With the DNC closing down some areas for security, many people will likely avoid going out and will be spending more time at home. That means, they will be ordering more food.

Places like Doordash, GrubHub, and UberEats can always use more delivery drivers. Many of them even off contact-less delivery due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many of these companies allow you to make your own schedule and don't require any prior experience. It's the perfect way to make a few dollars without being overwhelmed with work.

The DNC will be here before we know it so if you want to be a driver, you better get applying!
