Hello everyone! Here is another and last post about student life.
For the vast majority of us, more in some countries, studies have a high cost. And many, many students have to work aside from their studies. But as someone with, perhaps, no so big working experience, someone who doesn’t wish to see all his energy go into his work and not into his studies, what are the opportunities? How can a student make money without compromising his studies?
From my experience and ideas I got there and here, I made a list of ways for students to make money. Hope it’ll get useful to some people. 🙂
Here we go!
#1 Get a job in a supermarket, restaurant etc
The traditional ans more conventional one I guess.
#2 Work on markets
With this one, you’ll have to get up early, on weekends most of the time, but it’s sooo worthy. You get the human contact you may lack in a supermarket or a restaurant.
#3 Do fleamarkets
I like this option very much. Personally the only fleamarkets I did were in summer so the spirit is maybe a bit different.
#4 Sell your “old” clothes online, with apps
You won’t get that much, but it can give you some pocket money, which is always a bonus for a student 😉
If you like children, or even pets, do some become a babysitter. It’s great, you combine the useful with the pleasant.
#6 Give lessons
You know one particular language, you like teaching, thiakind of job is for you. If it’s not one particular subject it can be about helping kids doing their homework, explaining them differently their lessons etc. I’ve been doing this for 5 or 6 years (don’t remember) and believe me it’s a great job, I love it. And you can save quite a good amount of money if you’re lucky and willing. You can offer your services by yourself with online offers or paper offers in your grocery store. But you can also work with a specialized company that’ll connect you with families.
#7 Do some chores for disabled or old people
If you’re not into children or pets but rather these people, it’s also a great option. On one hand you make some money and on the other hand, you get useful and you help others. Like giving lessons, you can offer your services by yourself or work with a company.
#8 Work in schools as a supervisor
If you want to work later in schools and teaching, this is a great option. It’ll give you experience in the sector and you’ll get kids management experience.
#9 Offer manual services
If you have any manual experience or knowledge, in electricity, plumbing etc, this can be a good option. Just be careful to mention you’re not a pro.
#10 Be a creator
If you have talent and time, this can be an interesting option. You’re good at sewing, then sew small or bigger items an sell them, for example.
Don’t forget that aside from helping you paying your studies, yourfood or your housing, having a job isallows you to have some working experience, contacts and may lead you to your working future, how knows?
That’s all for today’s post, thank you for passing by and reading my blog. I hope you find it interesting and useful.
I’ll talk to you soon in a next post,
Until then, take care of yourself ❤
