6 Remote Jobs for College Students with Maximum Flexibility
College life can be demanding, and students often find themselves struggling to balance academics, college activities, and social life, and if they need to earn money on top of that, the pressure goes up even further.
Finding a job that offers flexibility and suits the college schedule can be quite a challenge. However, thanks to the rise of remote work and the gig economy, students can now find full-time/part-time, or project-based jobs that cater to their needs.
Many online jobs are student-friendly, offer flexible schedules, and can be done from anywhere. Imagine earning money in between classes or during lunch breaks in the college cafeteria?
In this post, we will explore some remote job opportunities that are perfect for college students. Let’s go!
Do you consider yourself creative? Then you should check SquadHelp and participate in branding contests where you submit unique name ideas or logo designs to companies. It’s a simple process, if your idea is selected you win a cash award!
Here’s how it works:
Simply submit your ideas in naming, slogan, or logo contests. Contest holders will rate the ideas and provide feedback. If your idea is selected you get paid.
You’ll need to have a verified PayPal account. Once you join, you will be assigned active contests so you can start participating immediately. And if you’re wondering if you have to participate in all contests assigned to you, the answer is no – it’s up to you!
Only the winner of the contest earns the cash award. So how much does a contest winner take? As per Squadhelp’s FAQ, typically, it is between $100 and $300, some contests, however, may have a higher award amount.
Next stop Slicethepie. If you are into music, fashion, and accessories you’ll enjoy this platform while also earning on the side.
Here’s how it works:
You get paid to write reviews on new songs, fashion items, accessories, and commercials before they are released. Your reviews go directly to the artists, fashion designers, and others to provide them with feedback.
Once you are registered on the platform you’ll be able to choose which category you’d like to participate in. For music, you’ll listen to a track and then start writing the review, commenting on what you liked/disliked about it.
If you decide to review fashion, you’ll be tasked with viewing pictures of products and commenting on the design, material, and whether you would buy them.
Sounds interesting? So how do you get paid?
Slicethepie reviewers get paid for each review they submit. The better your review, the bigger the bonus payment. You can easily withdraw your earnings to your PayPal account once you’ve reached the $10 minimum threshold.
Are you one of those students who enjoy proofreading their classmates’ college work? Now, you might be able to receive more than just a cup of coffee from that grateful colleague for your efforts.
