Being a college student can make it challenging to earn money for several reasons. If you are full-time enrolled, you most likely lack the time required for a job, or perhaps there are colliding schedules between work and classes. Being a college student I have been there, so here are some online jobs you can do from home (or your dorm).
Survey Online Jobs
First off we have online surveys, there are several places where you can find this sort of online job and earn money. However, do not expect to make very much from it, surveys typically pay from a few cents per survey to a couple of dollars. There are plenty of survey sites and apps, but I’ll give you three you can check out if you are interested.
Inbox dollars is a super popular site that pays in cash, rather than points, which makes it a crowd favorite. Upon sign up, you get a $5 bonus, one of the reasons many people choose this one. Apart from online surveys, they also offer a variety of things to choose from, such as watching videos, playing games, shopping online, and browsing new websites. You can complete the tasks using your pc, iPhone, Andriod or tablet.
You may have heard of this site before, due to being among the most popular. Just like the previous mention, SwagBucks offers a variety of ways to earn money. These include surveys, polls, watching videos, and playing games. The surveys and polls typically take 10 minutes to complete; however, keep in mind you will not always qualify for them. If you do not qualify, you will not continue the task nor get paid for it. When it comes to paying, you earn points called SwagBucks, which you can cash out through PayPal or redeem as gift cards for shops. This site also gives you $5 when you sign up. If your college is on break or gives you enough free time, you can put some time into it.
If you are new to online surveys or survey websites, this one might be of comfort to you. On their home screen, it shows how much its users have earned in the past 24 hours. This information may put skeptical college students’ parents’ minds at ease. The site has a point system, where a hundred points are equivalent to a dollar. When you are ready to be paid, you get to choose from hundreds of gift cards, PayPal, or direct payment to your bank.
