Sometimes a full-on job or internship during the semester is just too much. Or maybe you want to take advantage of your upcoming holiday break, but can’t commit to a gig at the movie theater or the coffee shop. You need to make more money, get more experience, and be productive, but it can’t become your whole life. That’s when you know: It’s time for a side hustle.
Here’s a list of four side hustles that will help your wallet and your resume grow.
What better way to show that you’re not only ambitious and driven, but also really, really smart than to be a tutor in your spare time? Well, that’s exactly what Varsity Tutors offers you the opportunity to do.
Varsity Tutors pairs you, a subject-matter expert on [insert talent/specialty here], with someone who needs help preparing for an exam, a class, or a standardized test in that field. You could be an SAT math tutor or an Organic Chemistry tutor. As long as you’ve got the basic teaching skills and the knowledge, you can start making bank by helping others learn.
Rover is the leading digital platform connecting pet lovers with pet owners in need of a helping hand. They put people like you (eager to make extra cash while doing something you love) in contact with owners who need their pets walked, watched, or otherwise cared for.
Walk dogs. Watch pets. Be the animal lover you know you are. Get paid. It really is that simple.
Plus, you’ll gain exposure to 1) running your own pet services business and 2) working for a gig economy startup, which will make for valuable talking points when you apply for a summer internship or full-time job.
Parcel is one of the fastest growing delivery companies in the world. Just a few years ago, they were the customer-centric last-mile delivery champs of the startup world. Since then they’ve been acquired and provide the same level of amazing service—but they need way more people to do it.
