As university students, we are always short of money. So we cannot help doing a part-time job. It is hard and boring to work as an employee in a convenience store or a factory. We need a unique part-time job to have fun during working hours. Here are 4 unique part-time jobs:

Firstly, being a beggar in the folk village is a famous part-time job. Literally, you become a beggar and work in the folk village. You can sleep in working hours and eat snacks. Surprisingly, you can beg tourists for money. The daily pay is 50,000 won, this is higher than working in a convenience store. However, this job is highly competitive. So if you want to do this job, you should apply early.

Secondly, playing the part of an extra (in a TV show or movie) is a popular part-time job. Recently, this has attracted a lot of attention in Seoul because the new Avengers: Age of Ultron movie will shoot from March 30th to April 14th. People became interested in this and advertisements were circulated on SNS but it has been confirmed as a rumor. The reason why this would be popular is that you can meet a lot of actors and stars while working and you can also have the opportunity to work with them. However, there are some disadvantages of this job. For example, you must wait for a long time to take a shot and almost all extras are needed outdoors.

Thirdly, being a member of an audience. This is similar to being an extra. You sit near to the stars and watch them talking, laughing and even crying. In addition, if you want to get a job in the broadcasting field, you can gain some experience of this indirectly. This job involves working indoors and the working time is longer than an extras because TV programmes go thorough so much editing therefore, shooting time may be longer than air time.

Finally, proofreading and copy-editing are not famous, but it is worth to doing because you can study and earn money at the same time. You look for spelling mistakes and rewrite sentences. Furthermore, your writing ability will improve.

As the world is diversifying, the world of jobs is also broadening. You can discover new, interesting part-time jobs and I hope this can encourage you to look for a new world.
