Do you excel at a particular subject? Consider tutoring a younger student or even one of your peers. Check with the employment office, a department head at your university, or even other local schools, for opportunities. Once you’ve lined up one happy client, ask them to refer you to their friends to help you get more new business.
2. Brand ambassador.
Major corporations hire people to promote their brand on college campuses. It’s a fun way for outgoing students to earn extra money and, if you’re passionate about that particular brand, that’s a great plus too! Being a brand ambassador is an easy way to get experience with big name brands, which also looks great on your resume.
Check with local employment agencies for temp jobs. Agencies will help you find temporary, part-time jobs doing things like administrative tasks (e.g. answering phones or doing data entry) or customer service tasks.
4. House sitter.
Many people will pay a responsible person to simply stay at their home and keep an eye on things while they’re out of town. This may involve light tasks like taking in the mail or more responsibilities such as caring for pets.
