Hey!
I am a student. I have already taken up huge loan. Can somebody help me to find some job openings so that i can lessen my debt burden?




Nelly, i can share with you some of the student income methods I came across today...

Students, who come from abroad, normally come down with fewer funds. For them, job becomes a genuine requirement. As their purpose is to study, they search for temporary or part time jobs according to their requirement.

Part-Time Jobs

1.On campus: On campus students have openings for

Reception work
Clerical
Cooking
Officiating at sports events
Serving food
Shelving books or
Assisting a professor or graduate student with research; though the dollars you earn vary greatly, on an average, in a on campus job minimum wage is $7.15 per hour. However, the earning increases over time.

2.Off campus : : Off campus job options are limited for the students from abroad.They would require an approval from US Immigration & Naturalization Service(which is difficult to get).


1.Internships: This type of a work , that can be paid or unpaid.. Mostly they are paid. The students are paid on an hourly basis or may be as a stipend. However a student can earn acknowledgment from such a thing even it is unpaid. Though the amount varies greatly with the organization, but a student can earn $400,000 each year through internship.

2. Seasonal Jobs
3. One-Time Jobs
4. Paid Focus Groups
5. Full-Time Temporary Positions: Such positions include a position for a stipulated period, say for 6 or 7 months. In such case, the students are granted benefits.

Like for an opening for a ???????environmental educator" for a full time temporary position, they might grant you an amount of $160- $190 per week, living allowance, monthly housing stipend, free accident and health insurance.

Off campus part time jobs may also include:


  • Part-Time Sales Associates
  • Luggage Handler/Airport Ground Agent
  • Customer Service Agent
  • Jobs for cooks
  • Part time school teacher
  • Catering wait stuff and bartenders
  • Website Management Assistant
  • Short Term Research Opportunity
  • Asst. to Office Manager
  • Bookkeeper
  • Medical Assistant
  • Flash Web Design and SEO Marketing Assistant
  • Internship
  • Receptionist position
  • Part time layout designer for weekly newspaper


and many others.

For all the part time jobs, the students are paid on an hourly basis, depending on the clauses of the company.

Student debts are the worst debts one can have. It has been estimated that about 50% of the students have student loans.

These students find it extremely difficult to pay away the debts after college. This is why, my loans are bothering me so much.I have heard, some students land up in to consolidate their debts when they are unable to pay. While others unable to repay debts at the proper time, becomes more and more debted and makes their life miserable.

Thus, if a student can search the best job option; considering his time, requirement and make a proper money management policy, he would not be frustrated like me.

Thanks Rhett. But can somebody throw more light on the information on the information Rhett has given?

hi Rhett/ hi Nelly

I have got some really great information out there. I am a school student and will be completing my graduation next year. I have a student loan burden. I do library work as a part timer in my school. That is all the only time I get in order to earn some fast money. This is however not earning me enough money to even sustain myself, leave my loan. I really dont know what to do in this case.

Wow, great topic! As the mother of a college graduate and a current freshman, let me tell you what my girls did and are doing to earn extra money.
My college graduate was able to get a job as a line cook at another university and that's what her main income came from. She was lucky to walk into a union job with benefits and got all of the hours she could handle--and since her degree was in hospitality management, she also used this experience to get the job she has a now with a national restaurant chain.
My freshman has had a job at the daycare center of our local health club since her senior year of high school. They let her take leave to go to school and give her all of the hours she wants during breaks and the summer. She also made several babysitting clients from this job. Since she wants to be a teacher, this is perfect for her.
I think what you need to look for is a job relating in some way to your major, and that seems to do the trick.

I sincerely hope that none of you ever get to USE this information - but I'm going to mention the concept, as if might be helpful to someone...

In certain situations, some or all student loans can be FORGIVEN. (NO I am NOT advocating blowing-off legitimate debts, or "trying to scam the system" - if you really owe the money and have any hopes of repaying it, you SHOULD...)

I have had the unfortunate opportunity to learn of two situations where student loans were completely and fully "forgiven" (meaning that no more money was owed - the loans were essentially "written off"...)

After my new husband was classified as "permanently and totally disabled" by the Veteran's Administration, his outstanding balances on his student loans were forgiven.
(I believe that the disability can be stated by other agencies - to the best of my knowledge, the key is NOT being a veteran, but being "permanently and totally disabled" - meaning that you have no hope of earning money due to the disability...) It took about two years of correspondence and form-filling to receive the final "forgiveness", and considerable communication with the US Department of Education, but the end result was well worth the effort. When you have major health issues, the LAST thing you need is someone dogging you for money you have NO hope of generating...
IF you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, I encourage you to open communications with the Department of Education...

The second ugly lesson I've learned about "student loan forgiveness" is even more gruesome. I mention it only because if you or your family find themselves in a similar situation, you'll probably have way too much on your mind to even THINK to deal with stuff like student loans...

My son and I BOTH took out signature loans for his education, which were arranged by the school he was attending (This is a scary story - if anyone would like the name of the school, PM me - I HEARTILY DISRECOMMEND THEM, but won't do so here...)
My son was at the school for six weeks when the job that the school had found for him turned out to be a "front" for a large and dangerous money laundering and drug business. My son attempted to remove himself from the employment, and was informed that he "wasn't allowed to quit"...The last time I spoke to him, he said that "rough-looking guys in suits had just showed-up at his student housing apartment and told him that he had to go talk to them at the job".
He was obviously shaken - which was out of character for him - and told me that he desperately wanted to avoid going to talk to them, but didn't know how he could avoid it. Within a day, my son was "mysteriously" killed on the school's campus. Surprisingly enough, our nightmare was just BEGINNING. I won't go into the details of all of the shaky BS that ensued - several years have illustrated that my attempts to pursue the incident simply created MORE problems for us...

THE POINT OF THIS BEING: I was able to get the loan company to FORGIVE both loans - mine and my son's - as there was no longer a student to educate...

There may be other circumstances under which student loans can be "forgiven" or written off. These are the two mechanisms by which I have personally seen it happen.
I sincerely hope that none of you ever get to use this information, but if disaster befalls you, don't let yourself be further beaten-down by unpayable debts. Collect your thoughts and information as well as possible, and contact the loan originators. You may, at least, end up with the debt-burden lessened...

How about working with your class schedule, being able to work on your own time, and helping people along the way, not by serving them food, or helping them check out at a retail store, but real help by doing what comes naturally, help them get out of debt? That what I do. I am finishing my BA in Business after a year hiatus.

Good luck with that.
