Here are the top 5 best free online jobs for students that of course don’t cost any money to start!
2. Craigslist.org comes in at number 2 because of the insane amount of traffic that comes through its virtual doors each month. At last count an average of 8 million people either searched or posted something of interest on craigslist.org. That includes jobs and gigs that you can do remotely around the world, for FREE. It only costs money if you are posting a job offer, but since you are the job seeker, that doesn’t apply. Check it out and search for “remote”, “work at home”, “telecommuting”, and other terms that allow you to do work at home.
3. Creating a blog/website can seem like a daunting task to many because of the competition out there and the technicality of the process. But be assured, websites are not as hard to create as they used to be! With tools like wordpress.com and blogger.com, it’s very easy to create your own customized website for free. I made my first website with blogger.com last year. How do you make money with blogs/websites? The answer is simple. Great content brings interested people to your site which equals traffic. This traffic equals people clicking on advertisements and affiliate links which equals REVENUE for you. You will also always be able to find a topic that people are not talking about or aren’t talking about well. Do a google search for free resources to get started blogging!
4. Transcription Services are needed by business and individuals who need someone to proofread, listen to and write down audio recordings of interviews, seminars, etc. for a fee. You will never have to pay to be hired for contract work or longer term business relationships. Transcribing is a skill that many students are already proficient in.
5. Become a virtual assistant and earn money by performing tasks for higher ups, small business owners, teachers, and even other students! VAs can be asked to complete any tasks that can be done on the internet such as fax, calling a store for pricing info, emailing a client in Berlin, or just finishing a homework assignment. Expect good pay, flexible hours, and a great resume stuffer.
