If you’re young and hungry, then you’ll want to pay quite close attention to the beat I’m about to drop on ya ears. Listen up children! Ok, I’ve been playing quite a bit too much Fallout 3. But what I do want to say is simple.
A lot of young people, high school aged mostly, are going to start looking for summer jobs in just a few short months. But I believe most people have the wrong approach here.
Why? Because there’s so much going on online. You can find so many more side-jobs, summer jobs, temporary positions online that don’t exist in your city.
Why choose them over the local jobs? Because the skill sets are generally more valuable. Here’s a quick look to whet your appetite:
- Start a job as a writer. Many people are looking to hire creative writing talent, no matter what your age is.
- Help local places get found. You know Facebook, so go share it with your uncle, your neighbor, and anybody with a business who wants to be found.
- Data entry. Lots and lots of these jobs available online.
What are you waiting for? While all your friends are out hunting for peanut paying jobs, you can start building a valuable skillset with online gigs. Not only that, but there’s more underlying value in working here. Once you get going, you won’t be bound to a brick and mortar J.O.B. like everyone else. As long as you have your smartphone, you can do just about any job from anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection!
