There is an indefinite nationwide strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) underway in Nigeria and students of public universities are affected by it. I remember how annoying it was to be at home during a strike in the Nigerian university back in 2003 especially one tagged ‘indefinite’. Internship opportunities were rare in those days and stories were awash of how female students returned pregnant and how people forgot what was taught during the holidays. Trust Nigerians to 14 years later, still make fun of the 2017 strike

 

Well, these days with the help of the internet, you don’t have to stay home and be redundant. A lot of software development companies and e-commerce companies are offering internship opportunities to students affected by the strike.

Even if you do not want to intern at a company, there are several freelance options you can explore online from the comfort of your home, to keep yourself not only engaged but making money too. I will share a few

Web Design

Every business needs a website these days and the market is huge. A web designer needs to be creative and artistic and also good at coding with some business sense to boot.  There is a lot of competition int hat space but it is still lucrative. You could start out as a free lancer. You can also build a website for yourself to showcase your skill

Social media marketer or manager

There is a huge demand these days for internet marketing services and consequently social media marketers and managers. A lot of people and don’t have time to manage their social media pages themselves. You can learn this skill online and begin to manage and promote the image and brand of both businesses and people alike online

Building apps

You can learn how to code and build apps through online coding programs or physical ones. It may take you about 12 months to learn to build a very good app. You can do it on a demand by client, build and sell based on a fixed fee or charge a monthly fee

Transcription services

A transcription service converts speech (either live or recorded) into a written or electronic text document. Transcription services are often provided for interviews, business, legal reasons, or medical purposes. The most common type of transcription is from a spoken-language source into text such as a computer file. It is then printed if desired.

You can offer that service online via freelance transcription websites. All you need is a good understanding of English, spoken and written, and the ability to type fast. Payment could be per line, per word, per minute, or per hour depending on the platform, your speed and accuracy and the industry. Some online freelance services include Transcribeme, Casting words, Scribe audio/Video transcription.

Blogging

Blogging is generated from weblog and has become increasingly popular today with some bloggers making millions. Linda Ikeji is a popular example. Blogging is like a personal diary. You can blog from the comfort of your home and about any area that interests you. Make sure though that it is something that interests others as well and drives traffic to your blog. Blogging needs a lot of consistency though and regular posts. You can make money through adsense and selling ad banners on your blog

Freelance writer

You can also choose to become a freelance writer if you are good at writing. You can do this comfortably from home once you have a computer, an Internet connection, and word processing software. Freelance writers are in high demand now because of the number of online platforms. You can take courses online to learn more. You could be a business plan writer, a medical writer, a resume writer, copy writer and also a web content writer. You can also sign up on several freelance writing platforms like craiglist, upwork, guru

Virtual assistant

You’ll be able to maintain multiple clients at once which mean you can easily fill gaps in your week or work overtime if you need to. Expect to be assisting with tasks such as blogger outreach, product listings, research and responding to emails. An example is HM Virtual Assistant


Start an ecommerce store

Everything is being sold online these days. You can start your own store or use social media to sell something that there is a demand for and begin to make money on the side. Think Jumia, Konga and the likes

Affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing is a referral program where companies pay affiliate marketers commissions based on sales, clicks, or leads sent to them by affiliates. Affiliate stores are web stores where people purchase items on a site, but through a third party. You can sell without creating any product. Amazon is one of the most popular affiliate programs in the world. With affiliate marketing you can work with a flexible schedule and focus on products you have an interest in

  1. I just want to say I’m newbie to blogging and site-building and definitely savored this website. Likely I’m going to bookmark your site . You actually come with remarkable writings. Regards for sharing with us your web site.

  2. Thanks for sharing your ideas. I’d personally also like to convey that video games have been at any time evolving. Technology advances and innovative developments have helped create genuine and interactive games. Most of these entertainment video games were not as sensible when the concept was being experimented with. Just like other kinds of technological innovation, video games as well have had to progress by way of many years. This is testimony for the fast progression of video games.

  3. There are certainly a number of particulars like that to take into consideration. That is a great level to convey up. I supply the ideas above as normal inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you deliver up where an important thing will likely be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged around issues like that, however I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls really feel the affect of only a second’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives. Miss Verlene
