The second thing you need to know or decide is your field. Well, art is your field in school, but you may want to do essays from a different field. For example, you may want to learn something in marketing or strategic management. So, you perfect your research skills in the field of your choosing, and then start delivering essays. This is one high paying job while in college you could pursue.
