Making Money

Whether it's to save up for that special treat, to pay those boring bills or just for day to day spending the only way to make a bit of spare cash is to simply earn it. But if only life were so simple. Jobs are quite hard to come by especially with the economic downturn but it's not an impossible battle, just an uphill one.

Every year thousands of students go out job out hunting quite unsuccessfully. It is not always the case that the job is not out there, it’s more a case that students don’t sell themselves properly or are applying to jobs which don’t suit them.

There are a number of jobs available to students in a range of categories. Please also browse our C.V. section for template C.V.’s to help improve your chances of getting noticed and getting the job. Once you have chosen what type of job you would like then browse our “Where To Look” section for more guidance on how to apply. Don’t forget to read Your Rights to make sure the job is not only adhering to Health and Safety but also paying and treating you correctly. If you don’t feel a job is suited for you or does not fit in with your lifestyle then why not try a few ideas from our Raising Money Yourself Section.
