7 Hot Online Jobs For College Students


If you are attending college full-time, you may find that squeezing in part-time employment is difficult to do given your busy schedule. Thanks to the internet thousands of college students have access to jobs online, some of which allow you to set your own schedule.

Let’s take a look at seven of the top jobs available for students online:

online jobs1. Virtual Assistant – Lots of companies need people who can provide assistance to handle tasks that busy executives cannot handle themselves. A virtual assistant fills the gap, answering phones, writing letters, replying to customer inquiries, using Facebook and Twitter, and a host of other varied activities. All of the major job sites list these opportunities including Monster, Simply Hired, and Indeed.

2. Call Center Operator – Many large corporations have sent their call center jobs overseas, but with mixed results. These same companies have learned that native English speakers familiar with American culture and syntax are much better received by their customers than cheap foreign labor which means that jobs are available. Instead of paying for full-time workers, some companies prefer part-timers who can answer calls remotely. Check the job boards, Craigslist, and related sites for opportunities.

3. Freelance Writer – If you are a talented writer, freelance opportunities can be found online. Write articles, clean up content, and make decent part-time income. Sites such as Suite 101, Freelance Writing Gigs, and Performancing post opportunities for your review.

4. Tutor and Teaching – You can help your peers or younger students who need assistance with their studies. TutorsTeach.com and Tutors.com advertise for people who have a strong grasp of one or more subject areas and are available to work with students online.

5. Survey Gigs – Lots of sites have sprung up purporting to solicit people to take surveys and get paid for them. Though some are legitimate, most are not—for that reason we are not going to recommend a specific site. However, if you find a site who promises to allow you to sign up for free and has valid surveys available for you to take, then you could make a few dollars taking surveys. The operative word here is few so don’t expect to bring in a lot of money.

6. Transcribers, Editors – Talented linguists can take ordinary words and make them work their magic. A lot of people know how to write, but the job of a transcriber is to make these words shine. Demand Studios is looking for content editors while Tigerfish needs transcribers.

7. Language Translators – If you know at least two languages fluently, you can parlay that talent into a job as a translator. Translate documents, provide support to a business, or write new publications in another language. Jobs are posted through the top job listing sites.

Look Around

You may be able to find other temporary gigs through online classified sites including Craigslist or Oodle. Look around—work is out there if you do your research.
