India’s population with the increased birth rate day by day it has become a distant dream for 80% of the students to get into IT company or Core company after graduation. Just like India’s population, the number of Engineering Colleges getting increased day by day. India totally has 780+ Universities and our Tamilnadu tops third among them with 50+ Universities. In Tamilnadu alone, there are 2705 Colleges and among them 882 Engineering Colleges.

It is clear that almost 80% of the college students passed out every year is in the process of job searching. Even if the ratio is 60-40 between the success and failure, remaining 40% of the students are unemployed which is in lacs when counted.

5 Best things to do if you are Jobless:
5)Write Articles for others:
If you are good in writing you can write articles for others. You can create a profile in UpWork, iWriter, and Fiver. Explain clearly what is your field of interest or topics that you would like to write for others. But writing articles for others will not fetch you a good amount of money initially but once you start writing continuously you will get a good amount of money. When a recruiter likes your articles he will give you work continuously and also he will start recommending you to his friends. You can use tools like Hemingway, Grammarly to improve your English writing & grammar skills. Take the first step by creating a profile on freelancing websites if you are a passionate writer and if you are interested in writing for others. I have listed few of them here Hubpages, oDesk, Elance, Craigslist, Freelancer, Guru, FreelanceWritingGigs, UpWork, iWriter and you can google to find more freelancing websites.
Let me ask you a Question. Can you find any one person in your friends’ circle who doesn’t know about Facebook or Twitter? I bet you can’t. The Social Network has been intertwined with our day to day life. You may question me, How this is going to help you? Let me answer. There are good and bad in everything, Bad thing is you can waste your time by sitting idle scrolling your Timeline feed and pass time or you can use it as a good medium to get contacts by joining in Job finding groups & pages. Be active in those groups/pages thereby you can be up to date on walk-in interviews that are happening in and around your city, which will surely help you to get a job. Social networking sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ have helped many persons to get a job. And don’t forget to register in Job Portals websites like Naukri, Timesjobs, Outsourcely, Monsterindia and make use of sites like Chetanas Forum, Prepare Interview to know about Sample Interview questions. If you have not registered in Job portals I strongly recommend you to register right away and make use of it.

Even If you don’t have a website, you can still earn using Affiliate Marketing. Many may not agree with me by saying that Website is must for an Affiliate Marketing, YES, I do agree with it, But If you are having a Facebook page with a lot of likes, large Facebook group, lot of followers in Twitter and GooglePlus Community then you can sell products using your affiliate links directly using your social media marketing skills. Amazon associate program is the considered as the best in the world for Affiliate Marketers. There are many Affiliate programs available for you to choose like Shareasale, Impact Radius, Commission Junction, Link Share but almost all of them requires a website.

Blogging is considered to be the second best things to do if you are Jobless. Blogging is another best way to make money but it’s not an easy way as you think. All you need is PC or Laptop with an internet connection and obviously your dedication and precious time. If you’re unemployed you can utilize your time fully in Blogging. Create your own blog using Google’s Blogger Platform or Automattic’s WordPress Platform. One of the Best thing about Blogging is you can write about anything that you like but make sure what you write is Quality content. People will visit your blog only if you have quality content. If you make them visit your blog regularly then you can get good traffic. Make sure to do not give up even if your traffic is very low in initial stages, find out where you are making mistake and correct them. Engage with your audience regularly by responding to their comments. Once you start to get constant traffic(say greater than 500 unique visitors daily) then you can apply for Google Adsense. Thereby you can post Ads on your Blog and make good Money. And market them using Social Network sites to get more traffic. There are other alternatives to Google Adsense like Medianet, Bidvertiser, Infolinks, Amazon Ads etc. Among all, Google Adsense considered as the best. Google is strict about their policy and terms, If you do not comply them your account will get banned. Once your Adsense account gets banned, then chances are very minimal to get approved again.
Yes, You read it right. Taking Tuition for children is the first and Best things to do if you are Jobless. A Branded play school collects 40 – 50k as an annual fee(Don’t know where is our Education system leading to) since parents are busy in earning money they don’t spend enough time to teach their children or we can say they don’t have sufficient time to teach their children. So they are looking for teachers who can make their children study well. You don’t need computer or internet connection and you don’t need to spend money for advertising your tuition. Just a Banner/Billboard is enough to get few students, tell your neighbors and it will reach many through word of mouth. Take tuition even if it is for One or Two students, concentrate fully on their studies and make them shine in their class thereby, their parents will refer you to their friends and neighbors. Nowadays, parents are ready to pay 500-1000 INR as a tuition fee (depending on what locality you are in). If you were able to get 20 students in a batch and if you charge 500 INR per student, you can easily get 10,000 INR for spending 2 hours in a day. If you’re Good in Mathematics chances are very high to earn more money. You can easily earn what an IT employee earns in a month if you’re good at teaching. Just be focused on teaching and it may get you a good name in your locality and among your students.
