Since all the world is facing a global crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the architects are now being told to work from home. Whereas if we talk about the final year students, then we’ll say, they are just sailing in a boat but aren’t able to reach ashore. Though they are done with their education, still are not officially being able to apply for the job. Moreover, this pandemic has even caused great financial loss to many organizations.
So, the team of The Architect’s Empire has come up with some of the methods that final year students or any student of any field can work on, and make their living with.
The first and foremost thing to do, if you are working as an individual, is to become a freelancer. There are many applications, to which you can register and work in your own field. All you need is a great and impressive biography about yourself and your work experience. Also, we would recommend you to share some of the projects that you have worked on, for the clients to see. As we all know, the first impression is the last impression. So, it’s really important for you to get the client’s attention to such online platforms which are possible only if you showcase your work. This recommendation is not only for the final year students but for every individual who wants to earn money by just sitting at home.
Also, some of these applications that you should definitely register on, are:
Freelance website, the largest crowdsourcing marketplace with 32 million registered users. There are hundreds of vacancies posted every day. You can register here for free.
Upwork provides you with various tools to kickstart your journey as a freelancer-collaborative space, built-in invoice maker, and transparent recruitment process. If you are looking for flexibility in your jobs, then Upwork is the best platform for you to start as a freelancer.
This platform provides you with the potential clients that will pick you on the basis of your finished projects. It becomes easy, as you won’t need to contact anyone. They will simply choose you based on your projects. It also provides you with free learning courses to develop the skills and teaches you to pitch clients.
If you feel hesitant as you are just a student, and to work with the clients of other countries or states, then Simply Hired is the best platform for you. It provides you to browse freelance jobs in your nearby location. Moreover, there is a list of top salaries and a tool to estimate your fee. This will help you to benchmark for a specific work you want to do.
You can create your resume from the website and learn many other things.
A website with over 1.5 million freelancers that are registered with them. PeoplePerHour provides you with ratings based on your work. Though there is a competition, still it is free to register. Just work on improving your skills, set some reasonable fee, and you are good to go.
2. CONTENT WRITING:
If you are good at writing, you can clearly work as a content writer. It is one of the best methods to earn money as final year students and by just sitting at home, while this pandemic is going on. Also, it helps you to share your thought and views on online platforms. We would clearly recommend you to write on topics which are you actually interested in. Don’t just jump on the niche, that you rarely have an idea about. Instead opt for the topics, which interest you and in that way, you will be full of various ideas.
There is a demand for a good writer, in almost every field. With good writing skills, you can earn around 60$ to 250$.
3. LEARN STOCK MARKET:
As you are a final year student, who is soon going to pass-out from the college, you can also go for stock market trading. But before that, you will surely need some money for the investment to start as a stock trader. Firstly, you need to understand how the market works. Remember, this is not an instant process to earn money, as the graph of the market is always going up and down. So, grab all the important information regarding the market like P/E or Market Cap, etc. and later invest in the shares.
You need a Demat & Trading account to start with the trading process. Again, let us aware you, that you might lose money in stock trading, so it’s better to start with less money and instead invest more time in learning its basics.
4. EARN MONEY THROUGH YOUTUBE:
We understand that there is no work to do, but also don’t just sit ideally and waste your time. These ’20s are a golden period in your life. If you’ll start early, you might reach somewhere in 5 or 10 years. Instead of blaming the circumstances around you, focus more on learning those things which you were always interested in. Flourish your creativity, and move yourself to the world of YouTube, if you were always interested in being one of these YouTubers.
You can showcase many of your talents like dancing, painting, DIYs, etc., and eventually, you will start making money out of it. All you need is to be yourself and bring on the content that is unique as well as creative.
5. START BLOGGING TO EARN MONEY:
There are two ways to earn money through blogging:
- Writing for someone else and earn immediate money.
- Starting with your own blog, writing consistently and earning money slow
It is totally your choice, which option you want to go for. Writing for someone else gives you instant money, but writing for yourself is a slow process because you need to build your audience. Once you start making money from your blog, then it gets fruitful as you are still earning while you sleep.
We hope this article, will help all the final year students or students, who are still pursuing their degree in making a decision for earning some revenue, out of this lockdown. Also, if you like this article then please do share.
