When we speak to college students on campus about QuadJobs, most are quick to understand what this platform can do for their bank accounts and their resumes. But some students get stuck on a few misconceptions that hold them back from taking advantage of what QuadJobs has to offer. Do any of these sound like you?
- “I don’t have time to work.” College schedules are not only demanding, but they can change so much from semester to semester—making it seem impossible to commit to steady employment. This is the beauty of QuadJobs—and one of the ways our platform is different from other job sites. Yes, there are plenty of long term jobs near campus that you can find, if that’s what you’re looking for. But the site is also packed with short-term jobs and even one-time jobs—for example, helping out at a party or moving a couch. Looking through these jobs lets you make money in whatever free time you have—even if it’s just 5 hours a month!
- “I already have a job.” See above. Unless you’re allergic to making extra money, look on QuadJobs to make extra money in the extra time you have. The additional work experience is valuable, too. Every new experience is a chance to network, make connections in your community, and build your resume. You don’t need to make a huge commitment to grow yourself professionally through QuadJobs.
- “I don’t have a car.” Many of our students don’t. That’s why virtual jobs are a thriving category on our platform. Find jobs that you can check off from your dorm room.
One excuse for not jumping on board we NEVER hear: “I don’t need the money.” With the vast majority of college students receiving some form of financial aid, and so many graduating with debt, QuadJobs is the way to offset this during your school years.
Setting up a profile only takes a few minutes. Then you can see what’s happening in your local community and grab some awesome job opportunities for yourself!
