Working for a wage
You could turn to the usual suspects, taking online surveys, handling document translation, programming, or just working as a freelance writer. Variations of those jobs include becoming a virtual assistant for a law firm or other company. Alternately, you could fall back on a data entry position.

Your own online business

The downside is that you need to be capable of selecting, storing, and shipping products. You also need to deal with product returns and damaged or missing shipments.

They will soon find they're are still on the hook for delayed shipments, damaged goods, and products shipped which don't meet the customer's expectations however.
Making money – without a product or service
Many companies are willing to pay handsomely if you can provide them a stream of potential customers. Your involvement begins and ends with each viable candidate you provide. You never need to meet or screen the candidates. You simply have to get them in the front door. Can you feel the possibilities beginning to come into focus? You have to know that online jobs exist for college students!
Fortunately for those interested in working at their computer, it can all be handled online. The possibilities are endless, from exposing site visitors to advertising or getting those visitors to click on ads, or even getting visitors to purchase products or services. You have only two requirements: a suitable niche and significant traffic volume.
Do it right – or don't do it at all
If you pick the right niche and drive lots of visitors to that site, you can make hundreds or thousands dollars every month. Once you've established your online presence, you'll be able to grow that presence over time – and grow your income with it. The beautiful part of it is that you'll be banking money while you sleep – because the Internet never sleeps.
The question then becomes: How? How do you get your arms around the possibilities offered by the Internet. Many others have tried and failed to make money online. It can be done, but without guidance, it's a tough nut to crack.
