Few months before my high school graduation, I made a huge decision regarding my education. Unlike most of my friends, I have decided that instead going for college, I would like to try my hand at part time jobs for students in Indonesia. As I can’t completely abandon my education for long-term goal, I would like to find jobs inIndonesia for students, something that involve my skill and help me to cope in working environment
Like me, many Indonesian students are considering student jobs, or ways to earn money online. Many have to do so due to the economic demand, but some others feel that they have to put their skills and knowledge to good use; by doing something productive, something practical rather than theoretical.
Part time jobs for students is also a great way for students to learn on time-management. Education definitely comes first, especially if you have a clear goal on what you want to do in the long run, but sometimes, you may easily get carried away by interesting job offers and ended up neglecting your education. This is where time-management plays a huge role, since you would have to balance work and education without neglecting either of them
Due to the limited employment available in Indonesia, and even more so for those who haven’t graduate from higher education, many students have opt for jobs that enable them to make money online. These kinds of jobs are very profiting, thanks to the foreign currency used. Transferring earnings to local bank accounts are no longer complicated, since you can always utilize international payment method such as PayPal or Payoneer.
What kind of student jobs are available, then? If you happen to study a new language, probably English, Chinese, or Japanese, you can always work as a translator or a writer in such languages. Such line of work may be challenging, especially now you have to meet clients’ demand. But this will certainly motivate you to do even better and you will definitely be able to see improvements in your study as well. Or if you are studying to become a programmer, graphic designer, or a web developer, believe me, there are hundreds or even thousands of jobs for students available online in freelancing platforms such as Truelancer. Post an impressive portfolio and start bidding (reasonably, of course) for a certain project, then in no time you’ll have your first working experience!
Regardless of what you’re studying at the moment, there’s always a good chance you can find part time jobs for students that are in line with your study. As someone who’s learning English at the moment, I can’t express how grateful I am these past few months for the chance to use my English skill to earn money online. Not only it gives me a sense of contentment; that I can earn money, it also helps me to decide my career path. Most of my peers, unfortunately, are always anxious about future employment. If you happen to feel the same way, don’t. Why wait until you’re graduated? By signing up in Truelancer, an online platform for freelancers and employers to work together, you have taken your first step in building your future career.
