Being a student in college can be very expensive. There are books and resources to pay for, sometimes accommodation, food, general bills and social events and month to month, this all adds up and leaves you pretty tight when it comes to the bank accounts.

However, it doesn’t have to be this way. Here are ten jobs you can start working from the comfort of your own home, meaning you don’t have to go out to work while earning money!

Manage Someone’s Social Media

Running a social media accounts, or many, is busy work, especially when you’re trying to run a business. That’s why many companies are turning to students who can manage them on their behalf.

You’ll be uploading posts, replying to comments and moderator the user engagement. Not bad for up to $40 per hour!

Be a Blogger

If you’re passionate about something and feel like you could confidently share your experiences with the rest of the world, becoming a blogger could be the ideal job for you.

“All you need to do is find a blog that writes about what you’re interested in, whether it’s fishing or fitness or whatever you love the most, and contacts them asking if they have vacancies on their writing team” – says Timothy Major, a Career Adviser at Huffingtonpost.

Become a Freelance Writer

One of the more upcoming jobs out there is becoming a freelance writer. This is a very diverse job, and you could be writing about anything from website copy and blogs to product descriptions and press releases for businesses.

You can use freelancing websites, such as Freelancer or Upwork to find work and pay will vary depending on a company budget.

Become an Online Writer/ Editor

As you’ve probably realised, the internet is overflowing with content, but has it ever occurred that someone actually needs to sit down and write it all? Why not let that person be you, and get paid for it!

Using writing services such as Ukwritings and Australian Help, you can find jobs writing for blogs and websites, or editing content that people have already created!

Being a Virtual Assistant

Many businesses, especially small businesses, don’t have the time to manage every aspect of their business, such as answering customer emails and organising the day to day running of things, but you do.

So why not become a virtual assistant where you can do all this and more? Additionally, most VA jobs have very flexible hours, so you can work when you want!

Transcribing Audio

This is a job role where you’ll be given a video file, such as a job interview, or an audio file and all you need to do is simply write down the words or conversation accurately into a text format.

No prior experience is really necessary, but you must be able to format correctly and possess a keen eye for detail.

Become a Tutor

The fact that you’re in college probably means that you’ve got good grades and quite knowledgeable about certain academic subjects. Why not teach people that are after this information by becoming a paid tutor?

You can find students from around the world using sites like Big Assignments and Oxessays, and all you’ll need is your computer, webcam and microphone!

Customer Service Assistant

Have you ever logged onto a website, had a question and used the live chat service? Have you ever wondered who might be on the other end? Maybe it’s the guy in the room next to you!

Customer service assistants are very popular jobs as businesses want to give their customers the best experience. All you’ll need to do is answer questions and point customers in the right direction! You must be a good and fast writer for this one!

Write Some Resumes

All over the world, job seekers are trying to secure their dream jobs. However, they need a good resume to make a good first impression, something that’s easier said than done.

Many people will, in fact, pay to have their resumes written on their behalf, using writers found at websites such as Resumention and Elite Assignment Help.

Data Entry Personnel

Okay, this may be one of the more boring jobs out there, but it pays well, and you can be flexible with your hours. All you’ll need to do input data into a spreadsheet or online platform, and that’s it! You may be filling in contact information, organising reports or whatever the business at hand wants you to do! All you’ll need is your computer!

Conclusion

This is only scratching the surface when it comes to jobs that college students can do at home. Think about what you’re good at and what your passions are and really get creative. Just remember, if you can provide a service, there’s bound to be someone out there who’s willing to pay for it.

I woke up, like any other night, in a bed full of nightmares, drenched in sweat that stuck coldly to my skin, as a reminder of the dreams I couldn’t escape. The dream was so vivid, I felt it physically burn on my cheek. I wondered if the sting from the slap was worse simply because her eyes held no remorse, not an ounce of respect.
