If you’re a college student, you could probably use a couple extra dollars in your pocket.

Working a part-time job in college can help you earn some cash and looks good on your resume, but where should you apply?  We have the answers! Here’s a list of eight great jobs for college students.

Referee for Club Sports
If you’re a sports lover or expert, being a referee for club or intramural sports is a fun way to make some money. This is a great way to stay involved with sports and make new friends with similar interests.
 
Retail
Retail allows students to have a flexible schedule and work shifts that fit around your classes. Plus, with a larger staff at mass retailers it’s easier to switch shifts if a last-minute study session pops up. An added bonus is that many retail stores offer scholarships for current college students!
 
On-campus Opportunities
Working on-campus is convenient and a great way to make friends! These jobs will work around your course load and sometimes you can find positions that relate to your major, meaning you’ll get experience on top of money.
 
Stocking
Stocking hours are generally early mornings or in the evenings, making it simple to work into your schedule. If you have a favorite clothing store, look into applying for a backroom position—you’ll see all the new items hot off the truck plus get a discount!
 
Apartment Sales Associate
Work where you live and save money on rent! As an apartment sales associate, you’ll get to interact with other college students on a daily basis and get experience in real estate, marketing and sales.
 
Freelancing
Freelancing is great for those in graphic design, writing, editing, photography and overall business and marketing majors. Head over to your career center or network with local businesses to find opportunities.
 
Dormitory Staff Member
Living in a dorm and loving it? Look into becoming part of the dormitory staff! You’ll meet lots of people and probably receive a discount on your rent. You’ll get to help plan dorm events, mentor younger students, and not have to worry about driving to work.
 
Lifeguard
Whether it’s over the summer while you’re back home, or working the pool at school, lifeguarding is great for those who want to get outdoors and enjoy the pool. If your school has an indoor pool, that means you can work all-year long.
