Writing isn’t always seen as the most marketable skill. If you’re a writer then you know what we’re talking about. Even just the way that people react when you tell them you want to write after school can be off-putting. But there are ways to make money as a writer; both after school and even while you’re on campus. In fact, here are some ways that you can make money as a writer while you’re still in school.
Writing CVs For Your Mates
After Level 100, most people begin to look for internship opportunities so that they can gain experience during the vacation and even start building their careers. All of that starts with a CV, and there are a lot of people who just don’t know what it takes to make a good CV, or simply lack that writing skill. If you’re a versatile writer, you can learn how to write CVs, write one for your mates looking to start internships, and earn some cash.
Write Academic Papers
It’s hardly a secret that people on campus pay other people to write their long essays. If you can manage the time and excel in writing academic essays then this is actually a way that you can make a decent amount of money per project.
Freelance For Your Favourite Websites
A lot of content websites are open to arrangements with external contributors. Usually, all you have to do is reach out to a website’s editor, which you can usually do simply by finding their email on the website’s home page. Send an email (hopefully with some personality) and express your interest in writing for that website. A freelance arrangement that you can do while you’re in school is not just good for your pockets, it’s also good for your portfolio.
