Today’s job market may be competitive, but there is a good side to it, too: it offers options for everyone willing to work. As a student, you might want to get some side gigs to fetch you some money. look at these jobs


Parents pay good money to have their kids tutored, so take advantage of your know-how to help their kids succeed. Whether it’s tutoring a basic school student with his or her reading, or helping a fellow classmate get those questions right, tutoring is big business right now.

Are you good in English, maths, science, or any other subject? If so, you may want to consider tutoring. You can spread your network across campus, but you can also tutor students from local high schools.

The disadvantage? You need loads of patience to tutor students who have no interest in understanding what you’re trying to explain.

Freelance writing/ Blogging

This is something you can do from the comfort of your room. The best part is that you’ll boost your writing skills, as well as your base of knowledge.


The disadvantage is that you might get overwhelmed from all that writing. You have your own projects to think about, after all.

Make up artist


You could work as a make up artist: if you know how to make up girls very well, offer your services for a fee. Start with your colleagues going for one function or the other.


Modelling is something you can do while in school, before and after school. Make sure you join a good agency that will supply you with constant jobs (not the ones that give false hope) and you'll make some cool cash doing some runway jobs.


If you're agency is well connected you can even get major jobs like billboards and tv adverts.
