What Are The Best Jobs for College Students?

college-studentsCollege students often work part-time to attend classes and also support education needs like textbooks, parking fees and food. Often the best jobs that are conducive to a busy student schedule are often as tutors or in fast food restaurants. The downside with these positions is that they involve long hours, require working nights and weekends and often leave students with too little energy left to study. Instead, students should take a look at some high-paying side gigs designed for the student schedule.

How much would students like to work from their dorm room or home, setting their own schedules and determining their own pay? That sounds like an absolute dream! Now students are turning to the power of the internet to supplement their income. However, when starting an online inquiry it can be hard to separate fact from fiction and scam for real opportunity. Realistically, many of the so called jobs posted online are in fact either huge scams, cost prohibitive or just not conducive to a student’s lifestyle.

Where can college students turn to find real and helpful information about jobs on the internet?

The first step is to realize that you will have to get your feet wet. You will have to wade into the pool of information available and show some initiative. There are no get rich quick schemes that work, so get those ideas out of your mind. Avoid those ads and things promising overnight riches. Be smart and think about the opportunities you find carefully.

There are some jobs online that can generate real money and check them out, listed in order of potential income possible.

#1- Affiliate Marketing

This is a real tried and true method to earn money. Technology actually can benefit this method well. It requires little in the way of startup. You will need a computer and some kind of internet source. You need to have an action plan and willingness to put in the work needed in order to reap the fruit of your labor. Training is key and you can find the resources for all the success in affiliate marketing by Googling “affiliate marketing tips.” However, you have to provide the initiative and drive to succeed. You can make plenty of income you need to get rid of all those students loans too.

#2- Article Creation

Articles abound on the internet and there are always websites and companies looking to pay for high quality material. Articles typically range from 300 to 500 words. Check out forums, websites like Elance.com and Associated Content for leads. Even placing your own online classified ads can drum up clients. Those at the top of this field bring in over $5000 each month. However these individuals work hard for the money. They have experience and knowledge on their side. Delivering articles that are informative and having persistence and consistency are key. This could yield writers between a grand or two weekly.

#3- Paid Surveys

There are surveys that actually pay money for taking them online. Keep in mind it will not make you a billionaire. However finding legitimate survey companies is the right strategy. Putting in some research instead of paying some online companies to find the resources for you is right.Some opportunities can be found by searching in forums and reading blogs. Putting in the research time to find the right opportunities and taking only a few surveys daily (between three and five) could net you $1000 a month for your time.

Final recommendations

Taking stock of all of the opportunities, I would opt for number one. Although it requires effort, it has the potential to also bring you residual income. This doubles the return on your efforts. You have a larger potential income. You get started, get your feet wet and having money rolling in for you.
