Taking on side hustles during your free time at home can be a good way to earn extra cash. From simple typing jobs to tutoring stints, there are plenty of ways for students to earn from home (and get relevant work experience!). 

Here's one job opportunity students might be interested in: a transcription job at a website called TranscribeMe. This transcription job lets you take on projects based on your own schedule, so you can work as much as or as little as you can. Its only requirement is that you accomplish at least one job each month to maintain your 'active' status.

How do I apply?

To apply, you must be 18 years old or above, with a PayPal account (where your payments will be processed), a desktop or laptop, and an internet connection. They don't require a certain typing speed from applicants, just as long as your work is accurate.


To apply, you first need to register on their website. After registering, take their English Entrance Exam and familiarize yourself with their Style Guide. The Style Guide dictates the do's and don'ts of transcribing certain words as well as the style they prefer for transcripts, so it's worth reviewing before proceeding with the exam. Once you pass the exam, the website states that your account should be activated within three business days, and then you can proceed with working on projects.
