Here are some of the best job ideas for college students:

 

 

1. Online Tutor

Considering you’re already having to learn a lot of information while in school, you might as well make money on the side helping people who don’t understand certain subjects.

2. Search Engine Evaluator

Search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing have so much going on in the background to stay functional that they need people to help them correct problems or errors that come up.

Helpful resources:

  • Lionbridge is another site that can help you become a search engine evaluator.

 

 

3. Freelance Writer or Editor

Believe it or not, PowerPoint is still around and being used in a lot of areas. You could do designs for people using PowerPoint presentations for YouTube videos, business meetings, speeches, etc.

Helpful resources:

  • Visme is a great website that helps you design infographics, PowerPoints, and other presentations using templates with a drag-and-drop interface.
  • Google Slides is like a free version of Microsoft PowerPoint that you can get access to by having a Gmail account.

 

 

6. Product, Software, and App Testing

Thousands of new products seem to come out everyday. What you may not realize is that the products typically get tested extensively before being made available to the public. That’s where you come in.

Helpful resources:

  • UserTesting is one of the top platforms I recommend for getting paid to test products, apps, and more.
  • UserZoom is another platform that pays you to test different products.

 

 

7. Data Entry Worker

Data entry is still very much in demand because every business needs to be organized and keep track of what is going on. This is also one of the easier jobs on this list.

Helpful resources:

    Hi Justin. I have lost count on the no of your videos I have downloaded on my laptop. I lost my job early this year and am looking out seriously for an online opportunity to cushion the effect on me pending the time I get another job. I am Adewunmi from Nigeria west Africa. But Justin I would like to ask you something which I have asked before but you didn’t reply or approve it. I will like to ask if you are aware of the numerous barrier of payment processing bedeviling we in Africa that engages in legitimate online business. Few years ago PayPal started operation in some African countries including Nigeria but it wasn’t helping for the fact that we can only send payments and not receive payments. So I will like to ask if you could help out on how we in this part of the world take the advantages opened for other citizens of the world. Thank you. You could also reach me via email. I sent Twitter at you sometimes ago also no response. Please try and always be of help because I believe that’s the reason you are doing all this. To touch and affect lives. God bless you real good. Cheers and I will be expecting a quick response.

      Thanks for taking the time to stop by the site. I’m sorry about the difficulties you’ve faced with the Nigerian laws. Unfortunately there isn’t much that can be done if laws like that are in place. Why those laws are there, I don’t know. Many Nigerians seem to have the same problems. Instead of looking at general ways to start businesses or make money, you might use the internet to find strategies that are specific to Nigeria. Hopefully, in the future we can find a way to help more people start businesses in that country.
