Well Paid Fun Jobs for College Students
Getting by while going to school can be hard, especially if you live in an expensive city. The good news is that there are several options for part time jobs that can really rake in the big bucks. All it takes is a little creativity and determination to get the job and keep the money rolling in.
This is a great option for students who live in big cities. Often there are pet owners who do not get home in time to walk their dogs or are unable to walk their dogs during the day. If this does not seem like a very high paying job consider that if you can walk several dogs at a time and then charge a fee for each dog for an hour walk, the money adds up quickly. Even better is that the dog walking leads to offers to pet sit, which can also mean good money. You can get clients by asking at a local dog walking company or just by asking around and seeing who needs a dog walker.
As a college student, especially an upper level college student there are numerous opportunities for tutoring freshman students and even high school students. The pay rate for a tutor can be significant, and the harder the class the higher the pay. With a just a few weekly clients a student could make enough money to support themselves throughout their education. However, like the dog walking opportunity it does involve building your own clientele.
Work at Paintball Arena
Paintball is fun, really fun and by working at a paintball arena you can be part of the fun all the time. You get to be in the middle of the action preparing the equipment and acting as referee. So if you ever played paintball and got frustrated with people who didn’t follow the rules, now you can make great money ensuring that everyone plays fair. Paintball Arenas tend to pay very well because they require their employees to be dedicated and excited about the job, so it is a great opportunity for college students.
Bartenders make great money through tips and their hourly wage. The better the bar or the club the better the pay. Some places will be willing to train on the job but others may require you to already know how to make many of the drinks. If you are friendly and talk to the customers you can really increase your tips and easily make enough to support yourself through your studies just by working a few nights a week. That means you will have plenty of time for study.
If you have decent writing skills you can spend your time editing papers for your fellow students or even helping out those for whom English is their second language. You can set your own rates and only take as much work as you need to. The best way to get clients and build work is through your classes or spreading the word among friends. You can even post around campus offering your services.
