Why you should quit your college job.

Life sucks after college.

If you have a great job, enjoy it. Nevermind this article.

To be honest, one of my most fun jobs ever was actually a college job. I was working with friends in a sorority kitchen.  And everyday I'd look forward to the work.

But if you have the typical, near minimum wage job that so many college students have, a job you only work because you need money, then listen up.



University is about investing in your future. Why would spend tens of hours every week working not for your future, but for short-term gains? It's not a wise investment of your time.

I'd suggest taking the skills you have as a student and applying them to a job that is more valuable to your wallet and your future.

Many college students don't realize that skills they already have are worth something online.


A freelancer is a person who works as a writer, designer, marketer, or the like, selling work or services by the hour, day, job, etc., rather than working on a regular salary basis for one employer. Employers, individuals and small business owners are actively seeking to hire freelancers for short-term projects. Students from all majors are able to find jobs that suit their skill set. These jobs pay well and offer long-term benefits. Keep your resume in mind while reading this:

Freelancing by definition is an entrepreneurial endeavor. It requires organization, discipline and leadership. By working as a freelancer one will gain experience in:

  • sales (finding customers)
  • client interaction / customer service
  • money management

While most college jobs are completely un-related to what someone's studying, freelance jobs can allow one to hone their craft. Even more important, freelancing will allow a student to essentially get paid to build their portfolio. This is equally as true for a student of computer science as it would be for a journalism student.



If you do not have a dream job now, strongly consider applying your knowledge and effort to freelancing.
