Suitable Jobs for College going students
Jobs for College going students
College is a time to prepare for your future career. With any luck, that degree you're working toward will land you a nice job to help pay the bills. But what about the rent, tuition and other expenses that are piling up right now?
Working part time while you're in school can ease the pain of being a broke college student, but that doesn't mean you have to take a mindless fast food job for minimum wage. The best jobs for college students are ones that will pay decently and give you something valuable to put on your résumé. These 10 jobs will boost your bank account and your marketable skills without getting in the way of study time.
Below are the best jobs for college students.
Let's say you're really great at calculus or Accounts, and you know a few people in your class who are really struggling. How can you capitalize on that? Charge for an hour or two of your time every week to work with them and help them improve. If you feel bad asking fellow cash-strapped students for money, you could also advertise at local high schools, offering subject. Parents of college-bound students will pay big bucks to give their kids an academic edge.
Almost every on-campus department needs an office assistant to help answer the phones, schedule appointments and keep files in order. It may not be the most glamorous or interesting part-time job, but what you learn there may come in handy down the road. It's a safe bet that if you're working a desk job after graduation, you can expect at least a small amount of clerical duties as part of your routine. Even if your future job doesn't require filing and spreadsheets, learning how to get and stay organized will be a huge advantage in any field you enter (and in the remainder of your college career).
Campus Tour Guide
Being a campus tour guide requires exceptional marketing, leadership and people skills — something you're likely to see in a job description down the road. If you've loved your college experience so far, why not persuade prospective students to apply? As a tour guide, you'll show groups around campus and point out the highlights of academic and extracurricular life. You'll need to brush up on trivia and policy knowledge about your school to field questions from curious high schoolers and their parents, too. If you can handle that with confidence and a smile, this is the job for you.
If you're an upperclassman or graduate student, you can gain valuable experience in education and leadership by working as a teaching assistant (TA). In large seminar courses, a professor can't give individual attention to every student, so a TA can act as another resource or liaison to the professor. According to Yahoo, you'll need to take a training course and apply to assist a specific class that you have already taken and passed. Responsibilities often include taking attendance, grading tests and papers and holding office hours to meet with students.
You'd be hard pressed to find a college student without a laptop nowadays. With so many notebooks and tablets on campus, chances are a good percentage of them are going to crash or otherwise break at some point during the school year. If you're a techie who can fix these issues with relative ease, you can offer to repair your fellow students' computers for less than the campus IT department. This is a big résumé-booster for anyone looking to get into a tech-related field after graduation.
Every aspiring journalist knows that getting published is crucial to landing a great job. Larger media websites often offer paid editorial opportunities for individuals who can write frequently and well. Freelancers work remotely and usually get paid by the article, so you can get a pretty decent cash flow going if you can turn stories around quickly. Sites like Indeed are a great place to start looking for freelance job listings.

Attention marketing majors: A retail gig can amount to a lot more than ringing up items and folding sweatshirts at your campus bookstore. If you ever worked retail during high school, you know that this job requires attention to detail, great customer service and a knack for persuading people to make purchases. These are critical skills in the marketing world, so a cashier position could actually be a plus when applying for jobs.
For those with a level head, good attitude and strong character, being a resident assistant (RA) can really have its perks. You'll get to know a ton of amazing students and, if you do it right, become a great problem solver and leader. Sure, there are late nights, harrowing situations and the occasional trip to the emergency room with an intoxicated resident, but most students who become RAs love the experience and do it for the rest of their time in school. RAs also usually receive free room and board for their work, so it just might be worth having to break up wild parties during your 2 a.m. rounds.

Do’s and Don’ts of Group discussion
1) Keep eye contact while speaking: Do not look at the one who evaluates only. Keep eye contact with every team member while speaking.
2) Initiate the GD: Initiating the GD is an advantage. But keep in mind – Initiate the group discussion only when you understood the GD topic clearly and have some topic knowledge. Speaking without proper subject knowledge is bad impression.
3) Allow others to speak: Do not interrupt anyone in-between while speaking. Even if you don’t agree with his/her thoughts do not snatch their chance to speak. Instead make some notes and clear the points when it’s your turn.
4) Speak clearly: Speak politely and clearly. Use simple and understandable words while speaking. Don’t be too aggressive if you are disagreeing with someone. Express your feelings calmly and politely.
5) Make sure to bring the discussion on track: If by any means group is distracting from the topic or goal then simply take initiative to bring the discussion on the track. Make all group members aware that you all need to come to some conclusion at the end of the discussion. So stick to the topic.
6) Positive attitude: Be confident. Do not try to dominate anyone. Keep positive body language. Show interest in discussion.
7) Speak sensibly: Do not speak just to increase your speaking time. Don’t worry even if you speak less. Your thoughts should be sensible and relevant instead of irrelevant speech.
8 ) Listen carefully to others: Speak less and listen more! Pay attention while others are speaking. This will make coherent discussion and you will get involved in the group positively. You will surely make people agree with you.
9) No need to go into much details: Some basic subject analysis is sufficient. No need to mention exact figures while giving any reference. You have limited time so be precise and convey your thoughts in short and simple language.
10) Formal dressing: Do not take it casually. No fancy and funny dressing. You should be comfortable while speaking in group. Positive gesture and body language will make your work easy.
