"I can divide my time up how I want and with that I can chose which jobs I accept“
Mylittlejob has spared me a lot of additional stress when I was studying for my Bachelor’s degree. Alongside writing my thesis, I also had an internship which took up a lot of my time but which didn’t make me much money. With all these other commitments, having a job was out of the question although bills still had to be paid! A friend recommended Mylittlejob to me, as he was experiencing the same problems as me and suddenly all my problems were solved. I was able to divide my time up how I wanted and I could chose which jobs I accepted. This was incredibly practicle, as I had very little time and I was very unflexible when it came to other commitments. However, this was no problem for Mylittlejob. When I can work, I work and when I can’t, then I can’t! With this job I am always garateeed work and it fits right into to my every day life. Now I’m finished with my Bachelor’s degree and my internship and have bridged my time between my studies and my job. This is great, and thanks to Mylittlejob I have no more financial worries!
„There’s always something exciting to do and you are able to do jobs for big-name companies!”
The work here is incredibly diverse and is never boring. There’s always something exciting to do and you get to work for big-name companies. Personally; I like doing product descriptions most of all as I studied marketing, and I learnt how to apply my skills. I know how to best execute these jobs and I always look forward to good feedback, which I can then use to apply my marketing knowledge. However, I also like doing translations and categorizing for online shops. . Moreover, Mylittlejob is the proud sponser of my new laptop, as I had spilt coffee all over my old one just before I had to submit my thesis. This was very annoying and I couldn’t imagine how I would cope without a laptop. However with my flexible work for Mylittlejob, I can decide how and when I earn my money.
„Personally, product descriptions are the most fun for me as I studied marketing so I can really apply all that I've learnt."
Moreover, Mylittlejob is the proud sponser of my new laptop, as I spilt coffee over my last one shortly before my Bachelor's thesis was due in. As you can imagine, it was a nightmare not having a laptop. As working for Mylittlejob means you can decide how much you earn, I simply worked a bit more during the month I had to hand in my Bachelor's thesis.
„The idea of getting rid of time consuming application procedures and earning money quickly and easily based on your own abilities really interested me”
I discovered Mylittlejob through an advert on social media. The idea of getting rid of time consuming application procedures and earning money quickly and easily based on your own abilities really interested me. The website made a really positive impression on me. The page is clearly laid out and makes it easy to familiarize yourself with the platform.
First, you must take a test to check whether you have the required qualifications. The test is a challenge, but shouldn’t pose too much of a problem for students. On your personal profile you have a 5 star rating. Initially, you can only accept jobs which the companies have marked with one star. You submit and job and it is checked and rated by the company. The qualifications improve with every good rating, which allows you to take on more challenging jobs. I like the rating system because it’s an incentive to provide good results and to then be able to accept more challenging results
"Your qualifications improve with every good rating"
I have already accepted and worked on several jobs. These range from product descriptions and writing highly diverse articles. The platform offers many other jobs such as graphic creation, translations, all kinds of research and programming. You take the jobs according to the time you have to provide satisfactory results. .
The company then checks the completed job. If they are pleased with the results, then the job is approved and the money is put into your account. I think the payment, especially considering how much time you spend on the job, is really good!t des benötigten Zeitaufwands, sehr gut.
„I think the payment, especially considering how much time you spend on the job, is really good!.“
What I particuarly like about mylittlejob is that you can work whenever and wherever, be it at university, in your favourite café or on the train. It’s up to you, when you work and for how long. At the beginning of term or in the university holidays, there are many jobs to work on and to earn some money to accompany money from your parents, grandparents or your student grant. Working regularly on jobs improves your own skills and the ratings from the company provide good feedback for all your hard work. Despite all the good things I have to say about this platform, I don’t think this platform has reached full potential yet. There are new functions or improvements to be found on the website. I can only recommend that each student takes a look at the site for themselves, sign up and read through the various job descriptions. There is most likely something there for you, and the more well know mylittlejob becomes, the greater the choice of jobs will be. For me this site is literally worth its weight in gold .
„I can either work on jobs the whole day long, or do nothing for two weeks“
I heard about Mylittlejob through a friend. She told me about it a few weeks before I began studying at university and I thought the idea behind it was great. Working when and where you want. So I registered and I’ve been there for a nearly a year now; sometimes very active, other times now so much. I can either work on jobs the whole day long, or do nothing for two weeks. When there’s something particular I want to buy, then I take on more jobs. With Mylittlejob I can decide what I want to work on and I have no minimum sales requirements to meet.
„I have always liked writing and mylittlejob allows me to indulge this passion."
I have mainly worked on jobs which involved creating texts. I have always liked writing and mylittlejob allows me to indulge this passion. I started with 5 product descriptions and since then I’ve worked on numerous product texts, articles and advisory texts. I particularly like articles about themes I’m interested in, such as sport and culture. With the research jobs I learn a lot of new things which helps me with training and provides me with new ideas and approaches to things.
Also I can use my own knowledge in the creation of the texts. The time you have to work on the jobs are more than manageable and I have never had enough time pressure to work right to the end of the allotted time. It’s also rare that I find the pay is insufficient quite the opposite in fact! Most of the time, I sit at Uni during a free moment and write for as long as I want to. Thanks to this, I can invite my friends to a party with the money I have earned.
„Most of the time, I sit at Uni during a free moment and write for as long as I want to.“
There are a wide range of jobs to choose from. Especially when there is a large amount of jobs, it would be nice to have a way of filtering them. The feedback from the company has often helped me work better on other jobs. Accordingly, the quality of texts would improve if more companies used the feedback function. The Mylittlejob team is always ready to help and provides constructive solutions, both via chat or by telephone.
All in all, I think Mylittlejob is a great choice for me. The platform allows me to work spontaneously and flexibly to earn some money, whenever I have an internet connection. This makes it perfect for the ever-changing life of a student.
“Since I’m not that flexible at the moment, the concept of Mylittlejob is great!”
I found out about Mylittlejob about a year ago through a friend, who had also discovered it through a friend. At the time I was looking for a part time job for a bit of extra money as my temporary job just about covered my rent and living expenses. Since I’m not as flexible as an employer would want at the moment, the concept of Mylittlejob is great; I can decide when I work a lot and work in the comfort of my own home-perfect for a night owl like me. I mainly use Mylittlejob to fund the little things in my life, that I’d have had to have done without otherwise. It’s so practical: you can wait until you’ve earned as much as you want before being paid, which means the money you’ve earned doesn’t go straight into paying your every day bills.
“The different jobs range from simple transcription jobs to more creative tasks”
The different jobs I’ve done since signing up range from simple transcription jobs to more creative tasks, such as writing reviews. These require a bit more time and effort, but they’re fun to work on. The biggest advantage of the platform is there is normally a big selection of jobs on offer, so you can always find something to suit how much time (and patience) you have, and what you want to work on. You’re also given a very generous amount of time to work on the jobs, which means you have plenty of time if something else comes up at the last minute (a telephone call etc.).
“There is normally a big selection of jobs on offer, so you can always find something to suit how much time (and patience) you have, and what you want to work on.”
In my opinion the platform is missing two things which would make it even better. First, I would like to have jobs that you could plan in advance (for example, a customer needs something in the next two weeks. I would then have this long to hand in the job, even if the job only took me 2 hours). Also, it would be useful if we could ask questions directly to the companies, so you could clear up any issues whilst you’re working on the project, or before you start it.
“Once you’ve completed the welcome assessment you’re part of the community!”
There are certain situations that all students are familiar with: unreasonable lecturers, a huge work load, pressure to succeed and short or long term financial worries. Because of this, it’s useful if you can earn a bit of money alongside your studies-and one possibility is working for Mylittlejob.
Mylittlejob offers you the chance to take on work flexibly and as often as you want. I heard about the platform thanks to my weekly university newsletter, which lists offers with big name companies and firms. Under the “part time jobs” heading I found the homepage, and once I’d completed the welcome assessment I was part of the community.
“Having fun whilst you work is one of the best aspects of Mylittlejob”
As a new member I initially only had the choice of low paid jobs -when you do these successfully you improve quickly and begin to work on better paid jobs. The higher ranking jobs have a higher star rating in their profile. I normally took on jobs consisting of product descriptions or writing pieces of advice.
Having fun whilst you work is one of the best aspects of Mylittlejob: the jobs on offer are not boring and there really is something for every taste. When I do certain jobs, I really get the impression that I’m learning things, especially when I work on translation or proofreading jobs.
“By doing this, I was able to earn an extra income for my books and I don’t have to carry my old rucksack back home from the library anymore!”
Personally, I would like to see a few jobs which allow you to be a bit more creative. Maybe a few more research jobs, that end up in professional reports. It’s also important that you accept jobs that are thoroughly described so that you can successfully fulfil the criteria and so all parties are happy at the end!
All in all, Mylittlejob is a great platform for earning a bit of extra money and feeling that you have worked hard on something independently. I could earn the extra money I needed for my books by myself and I don’t have to carry my old rucksack home from the library anymore. I’ve also treated myself to a city break and went out in Cologne; a really great weekend, that I wouldn’t have been able to afford without Mylittlejob ;) .
