Extra Income: A Student Guide To Making Money In College
If you want to make extra money while in college, you have come to the right place. Below is a list of 10 ways to make extra income while in college. Let’s get right to it on this one.
1. Work-Study Job
If you’re good at multitasking, this might be a good option for you. For example, if you work the desk at a dorm, you can work while studying. This is a great job if it’s available because it’s incredibly easy, you get paid for that easy work, and you’re studying the majority of the time. Since you’re studying while working, you then have more free time to exercise, hang out with friends, or whatever else when you’re done.
Other Work-Study Jobs include administrative work, working in the student union building, tutoring, working reception in the fitness center, getting a research position, and working in the library.
2. Uber & Lyft
All you have to do is drive people to their destination. In reality, it’s not that easy. You need to be at least somewhat tech savvy, but the real challenge is dealing with some people who will be rude, including those who are intoxicated. This can be challenging. Then again, no job is perfect, and it can be a lot better than answering to an overbearing boss.
3. Moving Helper
Moving companies love hiring college students because it’s cheaper labor for them. This is a win/win because they cut costs and you make money for carrying furniture around. This kind of job is also usually off the books.
4. Food Delivery Services
If you have a car, you don’t mind using it for work, and you don’t want to deal with rude people, look into Uber Eats, DoorDash, Postnotes, Instacart, and Amazon.
5. Pet Sitting
If you don’t mind watching someone’s pet in their home, you can sign-up at Rover. You should know ahead of time that you will be reviewed. If you’re not reliable or something goes wrong, you’re not likely to get more work. Make sure you take this job seriously and you can make some easy side money while hanging out with one of the most lovable creatures on the planet.
6. House Sitting
This is minus the dog. Don’t go snooping around. Most people who hire house sitters have secret cameras set up around the house.
7. Brand Ambassador
There is a site called Reppr. They look for college students with big social media followings to represent their brand. If you have a big social media following, check out their site. If you don’t have a big social media following, build one. All you need to do is send friend requests and follows to as many people as possible before the respective system shuts you down temporarily. You will eventually learn the algorithms so you will know about when to stop and start again.
As far as other people accepting and following back, you will be shocked at how many do, even people you don’t know. However, don’t ignore the people you don’t know. Get to know them. A social media account where the owner interacts with 30 people is much more valuable than a social media account where the owner has thousands of followers and interacts with no one.
8. Freelance Writing
All you have to do is search for ‘Freelance writing gigs’ and you will find something. Important Tip: Stay away from ALL sites/apps that charge you to join. That’s a scam.
9. Be An Editor/Proofreader
If you have strong grammar and writing skills, let people know that you will edit and proofread their papers. You will find a lot of demand.
10. Become A Campus Tour Guide
If you’re an extrovert and like walking, this is an easy choice. You will need to do some research so you will know how to answer questions. Once you know the information, it’s going to become second-nature. You will probably remember most details about the school and campus for the rest of your life.
