Graduate to an eBay business

No primary category set

Nic Paton, a writer for the Guardian, asked TameBay readers to help research today’s feature “Bay of plenty”. The article tells the story of students turned Internet entrepeneurs. Gone are the poorly paid part time jobs working in clubs and bars to top up student income, some students can earn far more by selling goods on eBay.

But it doesn’t end at graduation, some traders who used the site to top up their student loans have gone on to carve out successful careers and carried on trading on eBay. These aren’t part time jobs but full blown businesses in many cases earning the ex-graduate many times more than they could expect if they followed their fellow students into mainstream employment.

It’s great to see some TameBay readers stories in the mainstream media. If you’re also a student and making an income on eBay tell us you’re successes in the comments below.
