DJ – You don’t need to be a master mixer to start your career as a DJ. Some people just need someone who has excellent taste in music to hook them up with sound and a great playlist. Start off by sharing your playlists on a music platform like Soundcloud before offering your services at a fee, so your market knows you’re terrific.

Promo work – Promotional work is the bread and butter of most students, and it’s really easy to get. With the rise of digital media, online promotional work is even easier to spot. Find a social media influencer who promotes products you would like to work with, and simply ask for a hook up. Or, research experiential companies like Creative Counsel and send them your CV.

Braiding hair – Salons are not an option for most students, which means they rely on freelance and mobile stylists to braid their hair. You will need to have the skill to braid hair, and once you have the clientele, braiding hair can become a rich source of extra cash.
