One of the more frustrating parts of working while studying is that you spend a lot of time neither working nor studying. Unless you have a job at your university, you have a fair amount. This feels like time wasted. Even if you manage to study on the tube, you'll face countless interruptions and the quality of that time will be less than ideal.
Which is why more and more students are looking for jobs that do not require them to travel. Student jobs are no longer limited to low-paying data entry positions or store clerks. There's actually a ton or stuff you can do, but also wastes no extraneous time.
Here are three of the best money to spend as a student without wasting precious hours.
1. Do some editing
If you are a native speaker or you have mastered the Dutch language, there are tons of editing jobs you are already qualified to do. You don't have to be a writer or wordsmith. As long as you are adept with money and pay close attention to detail, you can earn good money this way. It's not difficult to get work, either. Hundreds or clients on sites like Upwork, at any time, looking for editors. They are not professional, but there is a good chance to do it. You'll need to sell yourself - talk up your experience, if you have none. If you are confident you can do the job, let the client see that.
2. Trade Forex
Trading foreign exchange (Forex) is all the rage these days, and for good reason. The Forex market is relatively easy to master. It works on simple supply and demand principles. Once you have a basic idea of what factors influence supply and demand or currencies (politics, economic stability, etc.), trading Forex is intuitive. Not only that, but most brokers offer risk free demo trading . You can get a good idea of whether you're in for high or low.
Just remember to find an FCA regulated broker . Brokers who do not meet FCA standards are probably fraudulent.
Students who have been studying for a couple of years or more should consider first and second years tutoring . While this is a path, there are some who are not sure about their teaching abilities. What you need to remember is that you are not teaching. Tutoring is more about using your skills to help others learn to study. The tactics and strategies that you have been using are incredibly useful for younger students who have not yet fully grasped how to deal with university work.
Furthermore, you'll build relationships with students based on mutual respect, and which will be meaningful and fulfilling.
