I'm currently unemployed and getting a government welfare payment of $261 a week. I finished high school last year and I have been on it since I turned 18 (I repeated a year after fucking up at another school). I will be starting university in August of this year. If the number of hours I spend at uni per week exceeds 15 hours, I have to come off the payment scheme and in which case, transfer to another scheme called StudyLink, which pays an allowance of approximately $168 a week (from what the lady told me), depending on whether I'm eligible. What are some good ways of earning income when studying for an undergraduate degree in university? I'm currently setting myself up for a job buying and selling guitars, basses, violins, ukuleles and accessories for a stringed instrument dealer online. The problem is, the small local dealer is broke as fuck at the moment and are in overdraft, so it's only come down to a matter of chance whether I actually make money from them. Anyone did something similar when they were in university? Anyone here in the musical instrument retail business with some /adv/ice?

Do you live in europe? Because holy fuck, that's a lot of money for doing nothing.

Are you majoring in music? You can play at gigs for money. What skills do you have?

No clue about the music retail, but I can help with the alternative income part.

Thought so. Are you eligible for living costs as well as the allowance? Though you will have to pay that back unlike the allowance

No I live in New Zealand.

Yes, I'm majoring in music (classical performance). I play cello and double bass, which are my main instruments (I will be studying the former as a first instrument and the latter as a second instrument. I also play vertical viola, violin, guitar and piano when I get the time. I also compose, which is something I won't be majoring on.

I have to find that out shortly before I start. I live with my parents, so I'm wouldn't be sure yet.

I believe you can get living costs even if you live with your parents, I have a couple of friends who get it. I don't think you should sell instruments especially if your dealer isn't the most reliable, I think you should look for a part time job instead.

They are really keen to employ me as they consider me a reliable and knowledgeable person. They have good reputation among local musicians, but their presence is limited compared to mainstream franchise stores like the Rock Shop, KBB and Music Works. They are financially in the shitter at the moment. One of the four workers running the place who is been there for a year can't pay his rent and has to rely on his best friend (who is the store's manager) to pay his petrol.

Technically it would be a part time job, since I would also be required to do other things around the store such as sanding and polishing instruments, perhaps even polishing at some stage.

Well if you have a contract with them, then they legally have to pay you so yeah, you'd get paid. Since the store isn't in a good position, you're probably better off looking for a job elsewhere, if something happens and that place goes bust you're back to where you are now.

Another kiwi here, Im not on a student loan and I live with my mother, who is paying my fees. Can I get a student allowance or something like that? Im 19, but too anxious to work most student jobs.

You can get an allowance if you're eligible, usually depends on your parents' income. There's an eligibility test on StudyLink's website too. Honestly though, just get a job. It gives you income AND something to put on your CV. It'll help you come out of your shell too, I promise.

Explain.

You can still get an allowance if you're living with your parents, but it won't be much.

I'd seriously recommend you try to get a job though, even something like picking/packing or stock filling at New World or something, which don't require much interaction with others.

Thanks, Ill go look.
Getting a job isnt that easy for me. Im paranoid that Im going to screw something up and someone will get angry with me which is something I simply cant deal with. If I was to get a job, an ideal one would be something where I dont have to deal with people and can do it from home, but Im fairly certain thats impossible. I have trouble with commitment too, meaning that I would probably fail to show up on account of being too scared the first day or something.

You're going to have to get over your fears and issues and get a job sooner or later, might as well get some experience now. Being in your 20s with an empty CV doesn't look good to any employer.

Your situation is entirely fixable by getting a job, you know. What else do you plan to do with your life?

I will talk to them about signing a contract. The problem is the four guys operating the place are overworked and haven't been able to get around to talking to me about it. They seem to be assuming employing me to do online sales will boost revenue for them.
