Making Side Cash as a Student: Beyond the Gig Economy Part 1

Making Side Cash as a Student: Beyond the Gig Economy Part 1
Of course you know about Uber and Lyft, and as a student, you might not have a car, much less one that can pass musters with these companies – let alone the cash for the extra insurance.

What else can you do to solve that perennial question of getting cash as a student without committing to a job that might hamper your studies?

How can you earn some spendin’ cash when even the traditional gig economy roles are flooded with other students?

The traditional gigs that have supported students in the past are things like delivering pizzas, babysitting, and tutoring.

Yet in these litigious and highly specialized times, you’re likely to find that late-night pizza delivery makes class rough (to say nothing of keeping a car for it), that there are tons of Early Childhood Education majors cornering the babysitting market, and that the university already has a tutoring center. It’s time to get creative with some better ideas.

Do you like stuff?

If you have some space, consider going to yard / garage sales and trying to flip things. Often, people do not know what they are selling, or sell it for far below what a collector would pay.

If you can get to the post office with regularity, you could sell things on eBay. While this takes time, patience, know-how, and often,very patient roommates, it’s a fun thing to do.

Another option is more creative: You can become a notary public through a quick course. Another blog mentions Loan Signing System, but there are other options if you search. We don’t endorse and have not used that course, or any other.

Then, you can notarize loans: For signing a car loan, for example, you could make a wad of cash.

You’d be surprised how often people need things notarized, and plus, it’s a great, professional credential to have once you get on the job market – especially if you want to go into business, law, or finance.

Maybe you’re an anarchist or something, or just not interested in being a notary.

That’s cool. If you have a creative streak or want to improve photography, you can create and sell stock photos on DepositPhotos or iStockphotos.com.

Your photo could end up in an ad at a bus stop, ready for the kids to vandalize! The best thing about this option is that it creates passive revenue.

It might not be a fortune, but keep plugging away, see it as a way to learn more, and you could get a steady stream of a few bucks a month.

Another project that might take time to come to fruition is to start a vlog or blog. Not just an online diary, but a focused blog about a topic you care about or know a lot about.

Whatever you do, keep it professional and / or under a pseudonym. It’ll be out there forever. On the other hand, if you build a useful, professional blog (say, you major in education and write a blog reviewing educational materials), it can sell ads and help your resume!

In a future post, I’ll outline some more ideas. For now, these options will help you earn some cash without over committing or spending hours online trying to fill out surveys for pennies, or some of the other options that won’t help you earn much more than picking up change from the ground.

6 Key Points to Get a Professional Capstone Paper in 2019
If you have a capstone paper that needs to be completed, don’t waste any time. Starting early will give you a huge advantage.

A professional capstone paper is thought through and not rushed. It is easily identifiable when you procrastinated and try to come up with a winning end project.

Instead of spending a huge amount of time on the internet trying to find a quick fix, start as soon as you have an idea of the direction you want to take. When you have time to spare, you can edit until you are satisfied with the end product.

There are some key points to writing a capstone project in 2019.

Provide answers

One of the first keys to consider is to be able to answer a question. You will have to present your case on the question and come up with viable solutions. It seems easy enough, but a capstone project has to cover all of the basis of this question. Extensive research is crucial.

Credible sources

Google is not the first place to start your capstone project research process. There is a lot of information but a culminating project will need sources you can trust. A blog is not a good source in this regard. Focus on academic resources and if you must use websites, test the information before including.

Be clear and precise

A professional capstone paper is more than just convincing writing. The reader has to actually understand what you are trying to present and bring to the table. Make sure you explain the content of this paper in clear terms. There should not be much left to doubt.

Structure matters

This is an academic paper, which means there needs to be structure. You need to look at a few examples ahead of time. This will give you a good idea of what your end result should look like. There are capstone logistics jobs where people focus on all the factors of a good project. You should put yourself in those shoes when you work on your own.

Editing

You cannot submit a capstone paper without editing it a few times. This is a crucial step and although it should not be explained, it is often overlooked. Go the extra mile to make sure you corrected any spelling or grammar issues before submitting. It might seem like a small step, but it makes a huge difference.

Cite

Cite all of the sources you used to complete this project. This is why you need to find credible sources. Citing a blog with little truth behind it could have devastating results. It might be time to take a walk to the library again. This is still relevant in 2019.

How much has capstone papers changed through the years?

There has been a few changes over the years, but the fundamental points stay the same. The amount of work is the same and the structure has seen little changing.

Hard work is still as crucial as it was a decade ago and this will never go out of fashion.

Midterm Writing Exams Guide: 11 Tips and Tools to Show Your Best Self
If you’ve got exams ahead, then you need to make sure that you are fully prepared. Follow our Midterm Exams top 11 tips to make sure that you start off from the right possible position!  

Last Update Dec 22, 2018

1.Study Space

You need to make sure that the space that you will study in works for you.
Study_Space
Ask yourself:
  •  Do you have enough room to spread out all of your notes and textbooks?
  •  Do you have a comfortable chair? Is there sufficient light in the room?
  •  Are all distractions out of the way? Distractions are something that you need to avoid and be sure that you are comfy and can focus.
Some of us like to revise in silence whilst others like to have some music on in the background. Some of us like to work in a cluttered environment and some prefer to be organized and tidy.

You need to consider what works best for you and make sure that you spend time getting this right.

2.Use Diagrams and Flow Charts


When revising, visual aids can be very useful. 

When you start revising a topic, begin by writing down everything that you know and use a highlighter to highlight any gaps in your knowledge.

When you get closer to an exam you will need to condense this information so that you have a one-page diagram.

By doing this you will be able to quickly recall everything that you need to know for an exam.

3.Apps

There are plenty of apps available to download which can aid your revision. Custom writing services are also at your disposal to help you out.

4.Time/ Study Schedule

When it comes to revision, make sure that you leave enough time to revise and that you haven’t left it until the last minute.

Although some students like to cram at the last minute, you’re probably aware that this is not the ideal approach to take when it comes to exam preparation.

To organize your time efficiently, create a timetable for your revision. Begin by noting down the number of exams that you have and the days/dates that you have to sit them.

The next step is to organize your revision accordingly. It may be that some exams need more revision time than others, so you need to create a balance that works well for you.

5.Past Year(s) Exam Papers

A great way of preparing for an exam is to practice old papers. This way you will be prepared for the format of the questions, and you can also time yourself so that you know that you are taking the correct amount of time per section.

6.Study In Groups

Organize study sessions with friends. This way, you can answer each other’s questions.

It may even be worth setting a specific time to study, and this way, you can ensure that you all remain focused and on task. 

7.Explain

Use the people around you at exam time. Explain answers to them as this will help you to get answers clear in your mind and should also help to highlight aspects that you may need to do more work on.

8.Brain Food

You may crave treats, and you don’t have time to cook. Remember what you eat can affect your focus and energy levels so try and stay clear of junk foods.

Choose nutritious food which will fuel your brain and body; opt for blueberries, yoghurt, seeds, nuts, and fish to help memory and concentration.

On the day of exams, make sure that you eat a meal consisting of foods that give the body a slow release of energy. Although sugar may be tempting, you will find that it causes energy levels to plummet.

9.Take Breaks

You may feel like you need to revise for hours on end but this is actually ineffective. Consider if you were getting prepared for a marathon, you wouldn’t run all day and night.

So when to comes to revising for exams, it’s a known fact that in order to retain information, regular breaks are useful.

We all work best at different times of the day. If you study better first thing, then start early and remember to take a break before lunch.

If, on the other hand, you study better at night, then take a longer break earlier in the day so that once it’s evening time, you can focus and settle down.

Don’t ever feel guilty for getting out and enjoying the sun as vitamin D plays an important role in the health of your brain.

10.Drink lots Water


In order for your brain to work at its best, it needs to be hydrated. Drink lots of water whilst you revise and also drink water on the day of your examinations.

11.On Exam Day

Don’t leave being prepared for the day of your exams.

Make sure that you know what you need to take with you and that know the route you will take to get to the exam and how long it will take to get there.

If possible, do a test run of your route and if you haven’t had a chance to do this, then write down some clear directions.

When you know how long it will take you to get to the place where your exams are held, allow some extra time.

You don’t want to end up in a situation where you have to run half of the distance or get confused about the directions. If you prefer you could make arrangements to travel with classmates or friends as long as they are punctual and won’t end up making you late.
