It is your first month on campus and finally the excitement and euphoria of going to college has started to wear off which means you have come back down to reality. You need to start looking for a job not only to pay off your college loan but also to pay off your other monthly expenses that are there, but you are a little confused as to what job is the best one for you as far as flexibility and pay. We will take a look at a few of the top on-campus and off-campus jobs that are available.
One job that would be perfect for you, whether it is on campus or off campus is being a library assistant. Library assistants get paid between $11 and $13 an hour which is very good pay considering the things that you would be doing would be helping students and visitors get their books checked out, and showing other students how to operate the library computers and the copiers, and the job description would be basically the same foreign off-campus Library. The best part of this job is the flexibility of the work shift. Most college students will opt for the short hours of the night shift between 5 PM and 9 PM which are the usual closing times of most colleges. This is probably the best job out there for college students because you will work in an atmosphere that is very calm compared to the hustle and bustle of college life.
A great job for college students that are computer whizzes is being a computer support specialist. Most college students have a lot of experience in stalling computer applications and working their way through hardware problems, and this would basically be their role in this job. The pay here is very impressive as it usually averages between $19 and $23 an hour. The only catch here is that ours may be odd or very long so make sure before you apply that you get a set amount of hours in which you can work and also off hours that you can study in.
Another great niche job for students would be computer repair. It’s highly likely that around 1% to 3% of college students know how to repair most problems in the computer but if you are one of those then it is a great job for you because it is not only flexible in its hours but it is also probably the best paying job that any college student can get. If someone calls you for repair job you usually don’t have to be there until 24 hours after their call. This gives you plenty of time to get your study work done and get a good nights sleep. The pay here usually averages between $30 and $50 an hour. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that you don’t have to work many hours a week to get a good pay from his job. In other words it is the top part time job for college person to have.
I really hope that this article will help to guide you to a good paying job and help make your semester a little less stressful. Good luck guys and gals.
