Full time study without income is not an option for many people whether they are young or not. And dedicating several years of study without income may no be the best financial decision for your life. Just because study is full time it does not also mean that you cannot do both and the idea that you cannot generate income just because you are involved in the heavy work loads of professional studies such as business studies and marketing courses to suggest a few. Studying does not mean that you cannot have a reasonable income at the same time. Here are some hints on ways to have an income while you are studying…
- Working online. There is a plethora of work online available in a variety of industries around the world. From simple data entry to more specialist programming and other high tech jobs. The fact there is generally work for anyone who is literate and has a computer with an internet connection. Take advantage of international job searches and look for particular telecommuting, work from home or freelancer websites. There is all the work out there if you want it. Do the job and get paid into your account. With online social networking and professional networking sites becoming more and more popular it is not in the interest of anyone not to do and good job and not in the interest for anyone not to pay. Word of mouth can be lethal.
- Studying online. Just as with as many sites dedicated to working online there are just as many dedicated to finding appropriate studies for you online and anywhere in the world. As many industries are shifting their employment to telecommuting to save money and ensure secrecy of clients and information (note freelancers may not actually know the client of the project that they are working on,) study and training particularly for those more modern industries such as games courses, consumer research marketing courses and translation courses are ideally suited to online forms of study as many of these people will need to manage their own time in their careers in the future.
- Working as junior or at discounted rates in your industry. Because you don’t have all the experience does not mean that you cannot get involved. Taking more menial type jobs in your newly found career industry or taking on work in your future career industry at a lower rate of pay is often a good way to convince potential clients and customer to give you a chance to earn an income and to gain invaluable experience before you graduate. Work in an industry or business that is close to your studies. If you are studying psychology working in a pharmacy might be a good option for you, not to mention that the employer will respect you more than other applicants.
- Look for unique opportunity incomes. Why let your imagination get in the way of making income. You might be able to sell and buy goods with your own eBay store or you could be trading Forex online. Some people sell home made jam at markets on the weekends and do an amazing business. If you can open your mind and get inspiration from other people’s success stories you might be quite surprised. Teaching young age students in your free time is an excellent way to earn and stay in the realm of your studies. Open your mind and re-invent yourself.
