It takes money to make money, and this is particularly true for applying to premium entry level jobs and paid internships. Unless you’re planning on moving back home with Mom and Dad after graduation, you’re going to need to save up some cash for travel expenses, professional attire, a briefcase and new shoes. If you’re looking to make a few dollars before graduation, consider these student opportunities.
If you’re particularly talented of knowledgeable about a certain subject, or simply consider yourself a good teacher, then you might want to look into tutoring. You can spend a few hours a week with your fellow classmates helping explain concepts, complete homework and study for exams (which will benefit your studies as well) while earning some much-needed cash.
Applying for work-study through your school is a great way to hold down a low-stress job without straying far from campus. Whether you work in the admissions office, library or cafeteria, work-study opportunities often allow you to get your homework done while on the job.
For schools that are located within a city or larger town, consider looking into nearby babysitting jobs for local families. You can also speak with professors or faculty members at your school who may need some assistance with their children a few times a week.
