#4 Freelance Jobs

Freelance is a broad industry and there are many different jobs within it. I’ve chosen my three favourites:


If you like to write, this is a flexible option. You can write about anything that interests you. It takes a while to get it going and you need to invest a reasonable amount of time, but eventually it could become a steady salary.


Vlogs are basically a blog but instead of publishing articles you’ll be publishing videos, normally combined with text and images. It’s a good way to engage with viewers and it encourages a lot of interaction.


If you are good with languages this is a great opportunity. There are plenty of people asking for help with translating websites, documents, content, etc. There is plenty of work out there and it’s up to you deciding how much you are capable of taking care of.

#5 Online Tutoring Jobs

If you think that making money online implies having a lonely job, with no human interaction, then being an online tutor might be for you.  This concept is becoming quite popular and lots of new websites are emerging. Do you have people skills and patience? Then the only thing left to do is to find a website you like, sign up, create a profile and start working.

This might sound a bit weird but it’s perfectly fine to do it. There is actually several websites where you can offer your services or where students ask for help. The way it works is simple, you’ll be doing other students essays and assignments and getting paid for it. In this websites you can even earn a reputation for being good at a subject, being good with deadlines, good quality of work, good communication, etc.

#7 Create an App

For those with an entrepreneurial spirit, gather with some friends (or by yourself), do some brainstorming and try to get a good idea. You’ll be surprised but the app world is endless and there are plenty of opportunities. Don’t think that you might not be good enough, your attitude and enthusiasm are vital.

#8 Second Hand Books

Every student knows how expensive college books are. A very common practice is to try to find an online alternative instead of going to the shop. The main issue is that you won’t always find the book you are looking for. What about you creating a website for trading books at your campus? It will take you some work, time, and help from your network to spread the word, but it could be a profitable business.
