The financial support we get from parents while in college may usually not be enough considering how expensive college life. As a student, you need to find ways to make extra money while still attending classes. Some of these ways may also support and sustain you during that time after graduation, before you secure employment. Some of these ways may include:

1. Being a YouTube video blogger

You can make and upload videos on YouTube and earn from them. YouTube pays an average of $7.60 for every video that gets 1000 views. When you upload that video, mobilize your friends to subscribe and view your videos, thus increasing the number of views hence more cash.

2. Freelance writing

If you are a good writer, there are many writing websites, where you can work as a freelance writer. You can work by writing articles, doing product reviews and writing e books. As a committed freelance writer, you can earn up to $300 a month.

3. Creating and selling gigs on Fiverr

Fiverr is a freelancing site where you can create gigs and sell them to buyers for at least $5. You can create gigs that involve logo design, transcription and translation, resume writing, preparing business plans etc.

4. Renting out your car

If you own a car that you do not normally use, you can rent it out to trusted people who need it. The charges for renting will then be established depending on the mileage or length of time that the car will be in their possession.

5. Participating in online surveys

There are many online sites which require the honest opinions of the online population. Giving your opinions concerning the questions asked on these sites will earn you a few dollars.

6. Volunteering for medical tests

During the process of drug development, after a drug has passed the test in animal test subjects, the next step is to test that drug on healthy humans in an attempt to establish the effective dose that will work on humans. These humans that volunteer for these tests are then paid in appreciation for their service. You can earn at least $100 per test.

7. Designing and selling t shirts

There is also the option of buying t shirts in bulk then tailoring and designing them to suit your target market. The t shirts are then sold at a price that will cover both the purchase per shirt and the tailoring expenses, leaving you with some cash on top. You can also sell the t shirts online on sites like zozzie.

8. Task rabbit

This is a website where you can get linked to both manual and freelancing jobs. These jobs include baby sitting, shopping groceries, helping people move etc.
