A Great Money Making Opportunity for College Students
Many college students will be returning to school after the Christmas break ready to start a new semester, but will also be looking for ways to pay for their tuition/living expenses with a job or some type of money making gig. College students typically have random schedules and have to attend class and study at odd hours, precluding them from many “normal” jobs.
Additionally, many college students don’t want the average run-of-the-mill clerk job at a retail store (if you can even find one in this economy). They may not want to wait wait tables for cash, though it’s not a bad way to go either to build customer service experience.
