In fact, these are not typical jobs; but sources for students to make money for themselves.
Being a blogger myself, blogging is something that has first popped up in my mind. If you are a student and want to start a business side by side; blogging is for you. Blogging is more than a job. It is a business where you are your own boss.
No deadlines, no fixed job hours, no accountability, and no threats; blogging with passion makes it an awesome profession. I have placed blogging as the top best online job for students because it doesn’t affect the studies and academic performance of students. As there are no deadlines to follow in this job, a student can blog in his free time.
Furthermore, a student can make a blog relevant to his/her field of study. This will be something more beneficial for the student in the long run.
A blogger can earn a handsome amount of money via different ad networks. For example, a student can monetize his blog with Google AdSense or Ezoic. Moreover, he would also be able to earn money from sponsored ads and guest posts.
In short, blogging holds a huge earning potential for students.
Affiliate Marketing is the second best online job available for students. It is about selling others’ products and earning a commission.
A student can learn the basics of Affiliate Marketing and can step into this field. There are hundreds of E-Commerce stores and websites available that provide opportunities of becoming their affiliate. For example, there are multiple famous stores like Amazon, Ali Baba, Daraz a student can become an affiliate with.
Why I am recommending it for students is because like blogging, affiliate marketing doesn’t require a fixed schedule or deadlines. A student can work on it when he is free from study or other activities.
Already thousands of college and university students are doing freelancing across the world. This is the most common and the most famous way for students to earn money. Freelancing is simply about selling your skills on different marketplaces like Fiverr, Upwork, etc.
Even though, if you don’t want to access foreign clients, you can find clients in local Facebook groups. You just need to have sound communication skills to engage your client and get started. Moreover, people you would work with might become your permanent clients and offer more jobs in the future.
If you are a student and looking for an online job, start exploring and selling your skills. In case you don’t know, your skills are in high demand across the world. Even if you can edit a picture, make a resume, or proofread content, start doing/selling it.
A student can earn from Youtube by turning his creative ideas into video content. Be specific in your niche that must match your interest. Be it entertainment, education, lifestyle, health and fitness, tech; you can pick any specific topic based on your interest for your channel. One can either earn by monetizing his channel or through sponsored (review) videos.
However, YouTube is a bit time-consuming for students as it requires video making and editing before upload. If you think Youtube won’t affect your studies, you can go for it.
Already thousands of students across the world are earning from YouTube. With millions of followers, they are earning dollars in four figures per month.
Students can also earn money by giving online tuition. One can find multiple websites that hire tutors for online teaching. Applying for those jobs online is as simple as signing up for Facebook. Starting online tuition as a part-time job will support you financially.
However, before joining any platform, make sure to read its reviews. Where the internet provides earning opportunities, it is also teeming with scammers. So you need to be alert!
