7 Ways of Making Money When Living Abroad
Studying abroad is usually synonym of being broke. Most often, we don’t know the language and this is not helping. Thus, bringing home the bacon requires some creativity.
If any of you already moved outside your comfort zone, or is about to do so, get ready to eat pasta 5 times a week or find a way to earn some extra cash.
When we are in a totally new city and country, we are missing the two main requirements for finding a job easily: speaking the language and having a decent network.
Applying for a student job can be a little frustrating since the offers will be low paid, late evenings and not that appealing tasks to carry out. If you feel like earning money in a more creative way, get inspired by this post.
Become a guide
When studying abroad we usually move into capital cities where tourism is always bringing money. English speakers can approach a big amount of visitors from many different countries. So, guess what! Your new host city needs you. Look for guide group corporations that are looking for new people. Make a good research about the city and get paid for sharing your knowledge.
Sell your skills
If you consider yourself a handy person and have a nice idea for opening a little business, find the right target and start a good campaign that let people know you.
You might be a handyman, hairdresser, beautician, good cook, or have a car to help people moving heavy stuff around. Find a way to help folk, for a competitive price, and you will have some success.
Sell your stuff
We all have too much clothes, video games, jewelry, bags, shoes, books, CDs, devices or gadgets. Start selling them online. Find the right website, make good pictures, proper descriptions and offer killer prices. You won't only earn money but also great space in your cupboard.
Rent your stuff
