Best job(s) while going to college full time?
I was wondering if there are any jobs that might be best for a college kid to do. there are a lot of “prepare home mailings and be a millionaire” scams out there, so i’m looking for something that might be at my own pace, however not be super stressful or time consuming. I am a huge financial worrier and am just trying to find stuff that pays well for college kids, and can work around our hours.
It seems that if you live off campus (student loans goign to tuition costs) and your parents aren’t well off, that you sort of get bogged down by the cost of living and school, yet to make good money, you need to go to school. I have a small scholarship as well (thank god) and I certainly don’t waste money on stupi dthings (i.e. games, cds, car upgrades).
Thanks all for your help, sorry its long and confusing
As an entry level employee – usher, concessions, box office – the pay isn’t going to be great, but if you can work up to lower management or projection then you can make some decent money.
Obviously there are better alternatives such as an internship in your field of study. But for just a job that’s flexible with school, I would put working at a movie theatre above fast food and many retail outfits.
I used to tutor for my college. They paid twice the minimum wage and I got a lot of free paid time when I’m not tutoring to do my homework. Usually had to answer the phones but that was easy. You can also tutor on your own and make more money.
I also worked in the library (probably the easiest job if you pick the right shift) . Didn’t pay as well but pretty easy and a lot of free time.
It sucks working those nights but I was always out by 11:00 depending on the wedding party…easy gig with lots of hours!
The second best job, cause I had two, was working weekends, night shift, at the local gas bar. It was self serve and I had opportunity to complete much of my homework there.
Hope this helps and best wishes in all your endeavours in college.
I’m a music major and have been teaching piano for almost 3 years. It pays SOOOOO much better than other PT jobs (I get to set the rates), and I work on my own schedule.
