If you’re a college student, there are three universal truths that you’re likely aware of: sleep is a precious commodity, ramen noodles are an important part of a balanced diet, and every penny of your budget counts.
Finding a part-time job is a necessary measure to keep afloat, but positions available to students often suffer from several downfalls. They are low-paying, offer little experience translating to long-term career goals, provide no flexibility, and are, to put it in layman’s terms, boring.
Still not convinced? Here are four reasons trivia hosting could be the perfect gig for you.
1. It’s a serious money-maker.
Making ends meet with a minimum wage, part-time job often feels like a feat that’s nothing short of a miracle. Now, let’s contrast that with the money you can make hosting Trivia Nights.
2. It has the flexibility to become what you make it.
Maybe you’re just looking to make enough money to occasionally upgrade to a meal that’s not made in a microwave. If that’s the case, you can aim to host one night a week to accomplish your goal.
On the other hand, if you’d like to start paying more towards your tuition to keep the student loans at bay, you can pick up more hosting gigs. Host every night of the week if you want! You could be making $55,000 – $75,000 a year!
3. There are resources available to make hosting simple.
There’s no way around it, writing a good trivia question is tricky. It has to be difficult but not impossible. It has to be accurate, but interesting. It has to feel like a game, but not a gimme. And writing a full show worth of these questions can take an entire day of work.
But don’t worry, this is where we come in! Last Call Trivia allows you to generate a trivia show in a matter of minutes, using questions written (and fact-checked) by professionals.
4. It’s FUN!
And there aren’t a whole lot of jobs that offer the priceless perk of being inherently entertaining. In fact, it might just be the best job in the world.
So there you have it, the definitive solution for all of your part-time gig woes. And now that you have the reasons why, and the resources to help, the only step left is to get started. Because after all, the pursuit of tuition money is anything but trivial.
