Many teens find this the easiest way to balance our hectic lives as students with the ability to pull in some extra cash. Below, I've listed just seven of the best after school jobs.

You have to be very careful about which survey companies you choose, but you can earn money by completing surveys online. A word of advice: never give your cell phone number to a survey that wants to send you a special text. You will be charged a monthly fee that is very hard to get off your bill. One rule of thumb is to pay attention to the fine print of how they pay you, and also, never sign up for a gig that asks you to pay - they're trouble!

2 Facebook Store

Here lately, I'm seeing a lot of vendors on Facebook, selling their homemade products. For some, it's hair accessories, others make crocheted blankets, scarves and baby things, and other make soaps and other body products. One well-received way to promote your business is to find vendor friends to participate in a "giveaway" Facebook stores are a really cool and fun way to make money!

Do you have that magical touch with computers? If you can easily design web pages, you can make money designing people's web pages and blogs. Some even pay you to post on their blog as advertising! You can Google and find free software to help you achieve this goal as well.

7 Online Reviews

Some people get paid to write reviews on different businesses and websites. If you're a natural at criticism, this may be the job for you! Find the good, the bad and yes, even the ugly about businesses, and write them up! Expose the beauty and ugliness to the world, so you can save your fellow Americans from getting snookered with bad business.

It is so nice to have extra cash in my pockets. I can go out with my friends, buy that new outfit, even waste a few dollars here and there at the vending machine at school. If you could choose, which is your favorite best after school job?
