4 Jobs That Can Help You Pay Your Way Through College

When you are a student, coming up with extra funds is not always easy. One way to get around this problem is to look for work near the campus. You can save money by walking and having other students pick you up from work. Here are four excellent jobs for students to look for when they need cash for classes or essentials.


While this job is not always the best money maker, servers can often dictate what hours they work. Getting a shift in a busy restaurant may net a lot of extra cash on the weekends. Scheduling shifts around classes is easy with popular restaurants. Students wanting night hours can bartend or serve at nightclubs and bars near the college. Often, these are within walking distance of the campus.


Security guards typically work night shifts checking businesses and patrolling warehouses, factories, and shopping malls. Students can work these hours and then go to class the next morning. There are guards for many locations including banks where students can work daytime hours on days they are free from class.

Fast food

U.S. News tells college students how fast food can help students pay off college faster. Many of the major fast-food chains offer tuition reimbursement. Plus, the hours are flexible allowing you to work around your class schedule.

Freelance artist

This job refers to anything you can do from your dorm or home. From drawing graphic covers for books and writing SEO content for business owners, there are always things to do online. Students can land an internship with popular brands and build a reputation on the web helping catapult their career when they finish school.

Other jobs include editing, data entry, and medical transcribing. Working with a freelance company gives students the ultimate say in their hours. You can work whenever you want, and when you need extra time to study for finals, then you can take the time for class first.

Working your way through college takes time, perseverance, and a lot of hard work. Finding something near the campus or your house is one of the best ways to save money while working. You can cut down on transportation costs.

If you work at a restaurant or fast food place, then you often do not need to buy work clothes because these places usually furnish them. Part-time work is popular for students. You can often find positions at local grocery stores and bakeries if you do not want to go the server route.
