Online Jobs For College Students
Online jobs for college students answer all of the worlds problems. Making money as a college student can be essential for survival.
However finding the time or place to get a job might be nearly impossible. I am going to show you a few online jobs for college students so that you can make more money than all your friends without even having to leave your dorm room.
Thats right you can work from home. (or your dorm)
When I was a freshman in college (just two years ago) I came to campus knowing 1 person & having no car and taking way too many credit hours.
This made it nearly impossible to get a good paying job because one I had no time & two I had no car. Sure I could find a crappy on campus job that paid minimum wage that only worked nights and weekends. But then I would have no time to go to football games, tailgate, or volunteer.
So I realized the best way to work would be to work online (from my dorm).
I tried being an online survey taker (made $10 in a month) which lasted about 4 weeks before I realized I was wasting my time and then the thought came to me to do something scandalous...

1. Become a blogger.
This might sound ridiculous and time consuming. However, It doesn't have to be. I am sure you are passionate about something food, makeup, cars, trucks, engines, decor, planning, business, college, greek life, healthy eating, politics, fitness, yoga, a disease, charity, being a young parent or religion.
There is something you care about. You can right about that thing and make money. Real money. It is one of the best online jobs for college students.
My first month blogging I made over $300 blogging (a lot more from my time as a online survey taker) and here I am four months later blogging as a full time job (I make more and more every month) paying for my college, and not digging myself into debt plus I have money to travel and have nice things.

2. Become A Virtual Assistant
Being a virtual assistant is another one of the great online jobs for a college student If you aren't ready to jump straight into blogging, and starting your own business right now then I recommend getting your feet wet by becoming a virtual assistant.
As a virtual assistant you do things such as schedule social media accounts, filter emails, draft blog posts, help come up with ideas, answer emails, and collect information for your boss.
You will work as a contractor with specific tasks most of the time. Which makes it easier for you and them both when it comes to doing your taxes.
There are many ways that you can become a virtual assistant such as starting your own website where you advertise and offer your services, however that is a little more difficult and almost like starting your own blog.
I reccomend heading to one of these websites below, creating a profile and looking for the virtual assistant job that fits you.
3. Social Media Manager
As a millennial chances are you have a social media account and are great at running it. This already makes you qualified to have a job. Crazy right? What a time we live in. You can work from home just by managing someones social media accounts. Running social media is one of my favorite online jobs for college students.
To become a social media manager, I would start by contacting local small companies by email and offering to run their social media accounts for however much you see fair, or offer a trial run where you run their accounts for a month and if they like it they will pay you.
This is great because you set your hours, choose who you work for, and get to set your pay.
Start by looking at small companies in your town that you care about, then see if they have a social media presence.
If they do but they post maybe once a month, or you see room for improvement make notes about exactly how you think you could improve it, and what ideas you have for the future.
Have you taken a college english class? Do you enjoy talking about many things? Do you enjoy writing about many things? Wow you are qualified for this online job already.
Maybe you should think about becoming a freelance writer. At the beginning the pay might not be astronomical however once you build up a little experience you can start making $100+ per article, or paper written.
Now that will for sure pay for some coffee, and text books.
Freelance writing jobs can be found all over the internet but after checking into it myself I have found that these are your best bet at actually finding work and not wasting your time.
All of these website ask you to write about a specific topic, and offer a set amount of pay. You offer them details or a draft and they accept or decline to work with you.
