Jobs aren’t so easy to get these days, especially when you have a limited schedule that has to leave plenty of time for classes and homework.

Online Jobs for College Students

Online Customer Service

Many companies offer online jobs in customer service. These are generally salaried jobs with regular hours and specific responsibilities. The job titles may specifically be called customer service representatives, but may also be referred to as call center representatives, counselors, or similar titles.
Most of these jobs are exactly what the name implies, and will be primarily customer interface jobs. You may be handling complaints, reservations, service coordination, or even light sales.
More companies are using online workers than ever before, and some of the more prominent employers include American Express, U-Haul, Amazon, and Capital One. Insurance companies are also heavy users of online workers and it’s worth checking out just about any one of them to see what openings they have available.
To find out who is hiring online employees, go to the employment section of a company’s website and enter work at home, work from home, virtual, or telecommute and see what jobs come up


I was hesitant to put this one one here, but after trying it out myself, I can attest that it is legit. Basically this is a free site that offers you a bunch of ways to earn cash, gift cards, or other rewards.
You can earn by answering polls, taking surveys, doing simple tasks (like giving feedback about a website), trading in old video games or books, and even playing games on their site.
I have used them for months and have received multiple payments from them, so I can attest that it is legit. While you won’t get rich with them, it would surely beat working in the campus kitchen for minimum wage like I did in college

Online Instructing

Education, training and instruction are moving to the web. From a consumer standpoint, it can be one of the best ways to find the widest number of instructors at the lowest possible price. Some companies are taking notice — one of them is education services leader, Kaplan.
Also did you know that English speakers are in high demand in Asia? As a result many are turning to freelance English teachers using websites like The site is basically a virtual online classroom for freelance teachers and students. Anyone can offer lessons (and set their own price) and anyone can take lessons.
From a quick scan, it looks like making $15/hour is a fair expectation.

Blog Writing

This is more about self-employment than having a job, but that’s where most of the online income opportunities really are. If you have a flair for writing, you can contact one or more blogs to see if you can become a staff writer. You can do this by starting out doing one or more guest posts, and if they work out for the blog owner, you can become a regular for pay.
You can also sign up with content providers, such as Demand Studios. If you’re accepted by them, they can keep you busy with a steady stream of writing assignments, as well as build up your inventory of published work.
In addition, various websites are also looking for content writers to provide permanent content or even marketing-type articles.
Online Selling

Do you have an eye for bargains? If so, you could make money selling online. Most people know about Ebay, but there are other sites where you can sell online.
And I will just give you an idea that worked well for me:
For a simple way to start making money with this idea, download the BookScouter App on your phone. This app allows you to scan the ISBN of any book and it tells you the prices that 30+ websites are willing to pay for that particular book. You can take this into a thrift store or garage sale and find books that you can sell for a few bucks and voila – you have a simple business running and some pizza money.


This can work well if you already have a blog up and running, or have the patience to build one and get traffic coming to it. Once you have a blog that’s bringing in at least a few thousand visitors per month, you can use it to make money.
There are ready-made advertising and affiliate programs you can use to make money on your blog. Google Adsense is a complete package on the advertising side — basically all you need to do is sign up for an account, paste the ad code into your site, and you’re ready to go. It’s just about the lowest maintenance way to make money on a blog.
For affiliate sales, you can also use a program, such as CJ Affiliate. They provide a list of advertisers and products for you to choose from. Pick the ones most relevant to your site, and you’ll have another passive income source for your blog.
Still another way to make money from a blog is by preparing and selling your own e-book. Pick a subject you’re knowledgeable in, one that people are likely to pay to learn about, write your e-book, then market it on your site. If you sign up for PayPal — and you should if you want to work on the web — you can use their shopping cart to not only collect payments for your e-book, but also to download it once they’ve paid. Again, this is an easy, passive way to earn extra money from your blog.
Do you notice that many of the best ways to make money online involve some form of self-employment? That’s something you should embrace, especially if you’re in college. Once you get out of school, the entrepreneurial experience you will gain from running your own business on the web will help you in more ways than you might understand right now. It might even be the basis of your life’s career!

I don't take blogging as a money earning method because it is quite broad field.

I think writing online for different sites is the best way of earning money.
