How can I find an online part time job or irl while attending college?

I’m currently a college freshman student majoring in nursing in College of the Canyons. I’m planning to transfer to CSUN in 2 years. As someone who’s inexperienced, I really want to earn money for myself

Hello, Lane !

An on line remote job while you are focused on full time nursing studies seems to be an ideal choice for you because you can set your own hours most of the time and work on weekends. You will probably be obligated to put in many hours for nursing practicums and lab work, so the flexibility of remote work is a good option.

There are choices you have for on line work and the more experience you obtain with nursing will broaden those options. Your first step would be to register at the employment websites Linked In and Indeed which very often offer remote/on line work. When registering, create notifications for what type of work you qualify for and you will receive categories of job opportunities in your e-mail in box. In addition to Indeed and Linked In, search on line for additional employment sites and you're sure to find some jobs to apply to. Some suggestions for remote work would be customer service (you may want to do this work for health related companies), consumer product testing, tutoring, interpreting if you know more than one language or teach English as a second language, Data Entry, Personal Shopper or any job that you believe you'd want to do and are qualified for.

For an In Real Life job, you will have to be available during the times and days the employers want you to be available and with full time school, that may not always be possible. Even with a work study job, but with work study, you can work the days and times you have free, but it may not always be accommodating your nursing school requirements, so you will need to explore this before hand. You will have had to apply for Work Study on your financial aid application in order to obtain a work study job.

Some IRL jobs that you can do during your free time could be childcare for private families, dog walking, housecleaning, having garage/tag sales once in a while for extra spending money, duties that you can set your own hours for around your school schedule. Once you are on the employment websites, you will come across jobs that will state their flexibility and inspire you with more ideas for what to apply to.

If you mean California State University, Northridge (CSUN) I would just like to say that I am happy to know you'll be transferring to one great school with a beautiful campus. I wish you all the best and I hope this was of some help to you !

Hi Lane!

I suggest you check out your college's website and check the career page to see if you can get any jobs on campus. You can also ask the librarians or anyone in charge of tutoring centers or tour guides if they are accepting applications.

If you want some jobs off campus, try to see what businesses are nearby. Whether its a fast food chain or restaurant. You can be a cashier, barista, waitress, hostess. You can do so many things. Check out LinkedIn too and update your resume.

Good luck and happy job searching!

Hello Lane,

Here's a practical guide to help you secure a part-time job while continuing your studies. First off, explore your campus for work-study positions. These jobs not only offer a convenient location but also align with your academic schedule. Additionally, consider leveraging your academic skills by seeking paid tutoring roles within the campus.

Don't forget to extend your search to local businesses around the campus. They often welcome students and offer flexible work hours. So, take a walk around the neighborhood and keep an eye out for help-wanted signs.
