An Opportunity for Business Majors
As a business major, you know all too well the struggle of finishing long homework assignments and cramming for exams. But all that studying paid off, and now you're an expert in the field of business! At Study.com, you can put your expertise to work by helping other students who are currently struggling just like you did. Our Study Answers project helps connect experts in the field with real students trying to solve real homework problems. Our experts are here to help students understand how to work through difficult material to gain a better understanding of their homework assignments. If you enjoy teaching and helping students, becoming a Study.com Expert could be a great fit for you.
The business topics we focus on include accounting, business operations management, economics, and finance. Because we're helping so many students from all over the world, we have tens of thousands of questions in many subject areas to choose from.
The Advantages of Working from Home
As a business major you'll have many job opportunities available to you, but how many of them will let you work from home? Working as an Expert for Study.com will give you the ability to work whenever you want, however you want. Instead of working 9 to 5 in an office with a dress code, you can make money answering questions from the comfort of your own bed in your pajamas if you want to. This flexibility can also be great if you want to work as an Expert alongside any job you might find as a business major.
Let's say you're working in the hospitality industry, managing a hotel or restaurant on nights and weekends: working as a freelance Business Operations Management Expert for Study.com can help you earn some extra money in your downtime or when you're not working during the weekdays.
Or let's say you're an accountant and your work schedule is heavily tied to tax season: when work picks up in March and April, you don't have to complete any Study.com work at all! You're a freelance contractor and can come and go as you please. But then in the summer months maybe you won't have as much regular accounting work on your plate: that means you can work as a Study.com Expert as much as you want. There is no maximum amount of work you can complete for Study.com.
Or maybe you already work from home as a day-trader or micro investor: working for Study.com as an Economics Expert could help you diversify the work you do on a daily basis. And you know the value of diversifying!
Plus, the numbers are in: working from home makes people happier. And why wouldn't it? There's no commute, there's no annoying co-workers (unless you have pets), and all the available snacks are the kind you like. Multiple surveys and studies, including a study conducted by Stanford professor Nicholas Bloom, showed that people who work from home generally report higher job satisfaction and have a better attitude about their work. This mean these workers reported feeling less burned out, less frustrated, and less emotionally drained by their work.
And don't forget: you don't even have to work from home. You can work anywhere with a computer and an internet connection, so a coffee shop, the office during lunch time, or even an airplane with WiFi could provide you an opportunity to make some extra money as a Study.com Expert.
