I’ve always been an industrious person and as such I have had my fair share of searching for jobs I could do to earn some cash at different stages of my life and I feel I’m not alone on this. Sometimes getting some menial jobs might be easier for guy to do while in school but its more difficult for a girl cause some kind of hustle doesn’t go down well with ladies. So if you’re looking for some menial jobs a lady can do while in school, this list might be of help to you.
1) You could work as an usher in events: I did a lot of ushering jobs in my school days and even began running my own ushering service. Ushering jobs pay quiet well and is something you can do as a student. The pay ranges from five thousand to twenty thousand naira for just one job. Find a good ushering service and join so they can contact you whenever there is a job.
2) You could work as a model: Modelling is something you can do while in school, before and after school. Make sure you join a good agency that will supply you with constant jobs (not the ones that give false hope) and you’ll make some cool cash doing some runway jobs. If you’re agency is well connected you can even get major jobs like billboards and tv adverts. They pay for modelling jobs range from 5thousand to some good millions
3) You could work as a DJ: Yes you can, I have seen many female djs and they’re good too. So if you have a flair for music and think you can do it, then do it. You could make small menial cash dj-ing at your colleagues events and work part time in a club
4) You could work as a home tutor: I’ve done this before and its quiet lucrative. Its easier for a boy to organise tutorials in the university but for a girl it might be kinda weird so instead of that, you could tutor little kids in primary and secondary school. This job gives you time for yourself too and keeps your brain active. Print out some posters and paste them around asking people to contact you if they need a tutor for their kids. The pay ranges from 10k to 30k.
5) You could work as a make up artist: if you know how to make up girls very well, offer your services for a fee. Start with your colleagues going for one function or the other. Participating in one pageant or the other (there are usually a lot of pageants happening in school)
6) You could rent dinner gowns to beauty pageant contestants. Now this is one of my favourite jobs a girl can do in school and really make good cash. Like I said earlier, there are usually a lot of pageants going on and a lot of contestants looking for gowns to rent if they cannot buy. When you get your next pocket money, save it and buy beautiful gowns. Then print some posters advertising your biz and paste around school or just tell your friends buy word of mouth and the news will spread. Depending on your kind of school. I knew a girl who rented gowns for four thousand each, I saw her make 20 thousand Naira in one night (off course her gowns were beautiful)
7) You could have someone running a cab for you. If you’re the kind of student that can get bulk money (up to 400k) from scholarships or rich relatives or both then put it into a cab business. For some people this kind of cash can only come once in their school year (as for me I never saw it in my school days sha). That period when you just got admission and every relative and neighbour and elders in church etc you know is giving you money to support you. I knew a guy who got up to N850 000 this way (he had a lot of rich relatives and two scholarships ). He took his friends out every day after lectures and even took some girls out for shopping, I mean five girl shopping at the same time all on one guy it was crazy. By the end of the semester he was begging. So learn from my friend and don’t make the same mistake. If you get up to four or five hundred thousand Naira, buy a tokumbo car and get someone to run it as a cab for you.
8) You could produce things and keep somewhere for a sales person to help you sell while you give him or her a cut inside. I knew a girl that made 1k a day from selling groundnut. Now groundnut might not seem like a very cool job but in a situation where the nobody knows you’re the one selling it and you can make up to 30k at the end of the month it seems quiet cool to me. After school, she fried the groundnut, tied 200 pieces (which will be sold at 10 naira each) and dropped them at an aboki’s kiosk close to her lodge. By the time she returns from school the next day he had made 2k for her. She gives him 500 Naira and her cost of production was another 500 Naira. It leaves her with 1k a day from selling groundnut and the cool thing is you’ll never know that, that drop dead diva you just walked pass with her brazilian her and android phone could afford all that luxury from selling groundnut. Yeah you heard me right she’s a groundnut seller. Yours might be chin chin or bead making. Make the beads and collaborate with a boutique to help you sell or buy weavons and collaborate with a saloon. Think of what you can do and do it.
Here are some other jobs you can do while waiting for admission
9) You could work as a minder: Now this is a job can be done before you enter school (the university) and when you’re done from school because it requires you’re full attention. Working as a minder when you’re a student can rob you of attending classes. The pay may range from ten to twenty five thousand a month.
10) You could work as a sales girl (in a cool place off course, fast food, supermarket, phone shop etc): This has the same characteristics as the minder, it’s suitable for before and after school not during.
11) You could work as a receptionist: This job has the same characteristics as the minder and fast food sales girl since it takes most of your time. The pay may range from ten to fifteen thousand Naira a month.
