Why PickMyWork Made It To The List

As the cost of living continues to skyrocket, many college students look for part-time jobs to earn a little money. While these opportunities (giving tuition, ghostwriting, data entry work and more) are plenty in Tier 1 cities, students from Tier 2 and beyond often face many hurdles finding such jobs.
