Giving tuition can sometimes be tiring, especially when you have difficult students to handle. Also, it requires a lot of effort on your part to keep in touch with a subject. For those of you who are looking for something a little less dry and a bit more interesting, we have found some cool jobs you can take up.

Uber driver
If you don’t already know, Uber hires drivers on a part-time basis as well. If you have a car and as a true university student, you don’t go to school every day, this is a great way to make money.

Even if you are a lazy driver, you can still make about $85 a day and if you are hardworking, $200 a day is possible. For a student, I must say that it is good money. Plus, you get to drive around to many places and talk to new people. Definitely a great experience.

This one is for all of you who have always aspired to mix drinks. Usually a night job at clubs and pubs, it may come across as sleazy. However, it is not. It is a decent job and you will just be busy mixing drinks all night, not drinking.

So it really is a great experience, especially for those of you who enjoy the nightlife. Also, you can have a good laugh with your colleagues about the drunk antics your customers are up to. Call it a bonus!

Always wanted to see your article be published and shared by people? Well, it is far from impossible. Many online news sites or lifestyle sites are looking for part-time writers and they are very flexible in their timings, which is great for a university student like you.

Perfume Promoter
Ever dream of doing a job where you only keep smelling better with time? Companies such as P&G and Luxasia have a number of perfume brands under them and through recruit agencies, you can easily find a job as a perfume promoter.

Once again, some of these agencies give very flexible timings and you can even choose to work just once a week if you are busy. The pay for some of them is $9/hour which for a part-time retail job, is really good.

Also, you get to learn very important skills such as sales tactics and customer persuasion, which will go a long in way in helping you secure your full-time job in the future.

Student Caller
This one’s a lucrative university student job. Such calling jobs are offered in the university themselves and you can get paid up to $12 per hour just for calling people.


Rest assured, it is not a stressful job and in fact, it can be relaxing at times. You also get to work with your friends and since it is in the school itself, there is no need for you to travel. How great is that?

So there you have it. If you enjoy teaching and giving tuition is what you want, that’s good for you. But for those of you who are looking for something different and exciting, these jobs are definitely worth trying out.
