Pay Off That Student Debt: 3 Ways to Make Extra Money Outside of Your 9-5

Are you saving up for a special vacation or looking to pay off your student debt? Or are you just looking to have an extra bit of spending money? Here are some options for getting more cash in your pocket while still maintaining your commitments at your full time job.

1. Part Time Jobs &  Freelance

Graphic designers, copywriters, and social media mavens take note! Urban Interns allows you to search for and apply to jobs throughout the US including many virtual positions. For free you can create a profile that includes video and social media links and search their growing database of positions.

2. Make It – Sell It!

It is hard to not enjoy browsing Etsy with all the creative and sometimes quirky items for sale you never know what you will find. Etsy allows people to sell in three categories: handmade, vintage, and supplies. Maybe it is time to take your crafty self and earn some money! Thinking about making this your full time job once you learn the territory? We love this post from Etsy’s VNTAGE QUEEN.

3. Catering
Believe it or not this is one of the easiest way to make some extra cash that doesn’t have to conflict with a typical 9-5 work schedule. We have met many young women (and men!) who work as part of a catering team at night or on the weekends to save up for weddings or gifts for the holidays.The great thing: you can take on as much or as little as your schedule allows.
