Strange But Profitable
You’re devoting long, grueling hours to scholarly pursuits that eventually will lead to a fulfilling post-college career. At least, that’s the basic idea. But before you land your intended dream job as VP of Mega Industries, Inc., you’d like to cover a few bills — without boosting your indebtedness to the local financial organizations, or the ever-ready loan institution known as ma and pa. You want to earn while you learn. And you’re ready to make it happen by launching yourself into a part-time job.
Then you consider the prospects. And your world gets a little grayer. Sure the job possibilities will send much-needed cash into your tattered pocket. But where’s the personal satisfaction you so deserve? The excitement of doing something really special? It seems like a one-way ticket to Dullsville, USA.
Don’t despair. As usual, I’ve mapped out an alternate route. A wide open highway to ultimate part-time fulfillment. We’re talking a savory selection of ten, count ‘em, ten unusual ways to stash some cash in your pockets. Perfect for don’t-settle-for-mediocrity college students like yourself. You’ll find them all lovingly laid out in this masterful USA Today article.
I especially enjoyed the Secret Shopper option. Much of the experience needed for this position already has been acquired by many, if not most, of you mall troopers. So there should be no problem leaping right into the action. And then there’s the lesser known ChaCha guide. Hmmm…If you want to know what this is, you’ll have to read the piece. So dive in and let me know what you think.
