There are many ways on the internet and offline to earn money after mca degree. And your MCA degree will help you in this very well. You studied a lot to complete this with good marks or percentage. Now it’s a time to know the power of degree. You know that there are people who say degree is not a guarantee for the job. It’s just help to got interview call but clearing interview is depending on your knowledge.
They are almost right. And this is the thing that makes you frustrated. You got so much of stress after seeing the value of your degree nowadays. And it is obvious that you’re looking for job. But I am writing and teaching you today methods to earn money after mca degree not about only how to get a job after mca degree? I want that you will earn money. I want that you support your parents from now. I want that you can help India or your country in development by achieving your own personal development goals.
But Let me clear one thing to you. My experiences, creativity and knowledge may be challenging to you to follow. But I hope and try to guide and teach you the best possible methods to earn money after degree.
So, How to earn money after MCA degree?
It’s very easy to earn money nowadays specially for IT (Information Technology) students & for people who have computer knowledge. To earn money you have to be practically strong. The more practical knowledge you gain about computers and internet the more money you will make. I know that you have the degree and you know about computers and technology very deeply more than me. But your 70% knowledge is based on theories and only 30% you can implement practically according what I experienced.
I learned more than 100 books and magazines that are based on past inventions and theories. It is very easy due to internet technology nowadays to learn practical skills or any skills. But in our time (my time) during 2005 to 2009 especially in Shimla, Himachal Pradesh India, We don’t have Internet facilities and institute, university and also fees, that much it is available for today’s IT students.
In that time few other people like me converted their theoretical knowledge from books into practical skills to earn money without any paid course or degree. The difference between me and you is only the degree and skills. You learned everything what teacher teaches you in college. And I learned everything what is required to earn money by doing various IT works for clients.
So, before I will explain how to earn money. You need to consider three things or you should remember three things before you begin to earn money.
1. You need to convert your theoretical knowledge into practical skills that will help others to solve problems. Skills that will help to create new theories in the technology field for next IT generations. The process is looked like: Theories -> Knowledge – > Creativity -> Skills – > development (personal, national development by socially, mentally, physically, financially etc.) – > theories.
2.You have to remember that no work is small or big. I mean a data entry operator as important for a company as web developer. Similarly, importance of peon is as important as CEO is important for a company. And soon, you can realise this point if you don’t agree right now.
3.Put your attitude on side or at home or frame your degree on the wall if you’re thinking that you have mca degree. Or you think now everyone lowers than you in IT field is nothing or uneducated. By doing this, it can help you to learn more from your seniors, and other experts and you can convert your knowledge into practical skills.
It’s not a fault and it is not wrong that you did MCA degree. It’s great that you did it. But maybe your teachers or college or universities forgot to add life skills in the mca syllabus or to teach you importance of practical IT skills. It’s not your mistake this is our outdated system (according to me I think they all are theoretical people producing theoretical knowledge to others and earning big money with the help of few corrupt politicians) and I am not authorized yet by people but I just want to resolve bugs of this system by guiding students. Forget me who am I and it is not important. Important is that how can I help you. So, I hope my little IT field knowledge will help you.
There are many methods to earn money online and offline especially for MCA students. But get some ideas from following points:-
How can you earn money?
Teaching is the best work to do in this world to earn money with respect. Teaching helps to expand your computer and internet knowledge. When you start teaching about computer you need practical knowledge to teach and this will force you to implement your own creativity and knowledge. Teaching is not that easy if you think I can do teach same theories of others people to students. You need your own creativity and thinking to answer questions of computer students.
How to start teaching after mca degree?
Well this is easy today as you compare it to our time. Today there are many resources such as Blogging, YouTube and Facebook, apps etc.
(i)Start by teaching school kids at your own home in front of laptop or computer. Teaching basic computer skills to 4 or 5 kids of your neighbours or others are enough to start by getting small fees 500 to 1000 monthly and based on 1 or 2 hour daily.
(ii)If you do it in the village or small town of your area where no one know about technology. In start it’s tough to find out the village but you can do it by doing research, asking questions and discussing with village friends or people. May be possible they will make you negative in the start but there are people, elderly parents, senior citizens and who don’t know about the computers and internet anything wants to learn. No matter if they are using Facebook or apps and remember this is not basic knowledge. You can teach many things that are helpful for them. Learn here more about this: What is the importance of computers in our parent’s life ?
(iii) No registration is required and don’t do it too early may be later if you think so, but just start to spread knowledge to others what are their problems regarding computers and internet.
(iv) Create your YouTube Channel and integrate it with Google AdSense. Record your screen videos and teach to people.
(v) You can also do it by visiting their home.
(vi) Start with what you have, what the resources you have, not matter how bad you’re teaching skills? No one is perfect and never exists. This is a science. I will teach you about this later. Start with one computer or laptop from your home. You can do it even for temporary and in part time. And in other keep trying for better job.
Benefits:- You will earn money with respect. Your followers and network start growing. Your theoretical knowledge will converted into practical skills. And your parents feel proud on you, when you start getting appreciation from others or your village people.
Precaution: – Teach skills that help other to do good things or solve their problems. Whatever you teach but also teach about the precautions.
2. Do Freelancing
This is another best work to earn money on the internet without any investment. Freelancer earns money according to the importance of work and projects. These kinds of works are done on pre-defined budget. Clients can hire you permanently or for shorter time on hourly and fixed prices.
You only need few clients, qualities in your personality and few practical skills. There are various types of works such as data entry operator, technical writing, social media marketing, affiliate marketing, web designing & development, troubleshooting, SEO, software development etc. are available on the freelancing sites. I will recommend starting with upwork is good option.
How to do it?
You can learn here:
Benefits:You learned what is in demand. You can inspired by seeing others performance in their personal and financial development. You will get high paying jobs and works to do. This is good to start with from your home to earn money. And you can earn even while you’re travelling and whenever you want to earn. And you can do freelancing also while teaching to people at your home.
Precautions: – In start only apply for the jobs you think you’re capable. Don’t worry about the fraud people on the internet. Just do it and know the importance of honesty in life. Don’t trick to clients and if you’re honest you will get everything you need. Research on everything, ask questions on freelancing sites. And choose the best freelancing platforms after analyzing everything.
3. Apply for jobs in computer education center
You don’t have laptop or internet yet. And if you think you can’t do above two things for any reasons. Then visit computer institute in your city or village
How to do it?
(i) Write on paper all computer institutes you’re targeting in your city or village.
(ii) Ask their ex or current students as a student. You have to know about their courses, qualities, financial dealings etc. and future plans before applying. Know about those computer institutes, what they are missing in computer education.
(iii) Compare all your written institutes based on the research. Also compare the qualities of their managing directors or owners.
(iv) Prepare yourself how can you help to grow any one of these institutes. During interview discuss about your skills and what you can do for them.
(v) Answers for salary based on your knowledge and need in the start. Later you can increase this. If computer institute grow and more people interested to learn from you, any computer institute MD or owner should increase your salary.
Benefits:-You will become famous in your village and city for your skills. Your publicity, qualities and confidence start to grow. You will get some handsome job offers from big institutes and colleges after one or two years because of your experiences. You will start earning money and it will great for you to support your family.
Precaution:Some computer institutes are fraud not by documents but by their commitments. They commit to students many things and later the results are bad those I don’t to write here. I think you know this. So, I only advise you that do research properly on everything and teach students from your heart. You can also use your spare time to learn career development and new skills. It is important that you should know what are your goals and strategy to earn money.
4. Provide technical services or open repairing centre
If you’re not good in teaching or you’re thinking that above three points are not suitable to my personality and knowledge then don’t worry. Provide technical services. I mean to say that rent a room in crowed place and start helping people in their daily computer requirements.
I know that you’re thinking that did I complete my degree to rent a room to start stressing out on people problem. It is great work. But I think you remembered what I said above in top of this post on the third paragraph or you can read it again, about the things you should remember three things before you begin to earn money.
How to do it?
(i) Do the research in your city and ask others what they are missing services in the city. What kind of technical skills are not available in the city? Do your complete research included cost and profits? But I recommend that start by providing small services to small group of people.
(ii) Start from home or rent a room, type and print documents and assignments of kids and others, repair common computer and internet problems. And it is very good to start in the village where there are lack of internet connection and technical services.
(iii) Advertise your services on Facebook, recommend it to neighbours, and spread words about your services.
(iv)This can be part time but while doing this, you will start getting practical knowledge about computers and people needs.
Benefits: You can earn money while learning by doing practical things. Cyber cafes are good example of this. Start saving money and invest it later on more services or new skills. These kinds of business or services are always in demand due to many reasons. Many people are running this successfully and earning money. So, if you think you can do it then try yourself.
Precaution:- This is not permanent job or work for you. But if you use this money to advance your skills that matched to your MCA syllabus then it is good to do. May be later your small brother or sister or you can hire any person to run this business because of high demand of services in your area.
5. Internet Marketing Services
Internet marketing is everything for many companies. Students and degree holders are in demand in internet marketing field. When businesses, products, books etc. are advertised on the online is called internet marketing.
Many brands and companies are specialised in this. Website development, social media marketing, search engine optimisation, email marketing, affiliate marketing all are in demand. Do little research about this it is very good option for MCA students. And almost all are posting jobs proposal on freelancing sites for freelancers. If you think you can do better in above skills then what is the problem. Just to do it.
How to do it?
(i) Learn about website development and earning methods!
(ii) Do or apply for this kind of job even if you have to work as a trainee salary between 4000 or 8000 monthly, experiences matter, so apply and get all the knowledge that is important to you while working with this kind of companies.
(iii) Create website for business, known people and also create your own. You can easily earn 10000 to 30000 monthly.
(iv) Advertise your services and skills online and offline.
(v) Charge for websites, and do all other marketing efforts.
Benefits:- Benefits of doing this work after mca is great if you’re thinking to work on this. Companies and business invest billions of dollars monthly for marketing on the internet.
And the big thing is that it is required creativity and practical skills. It is also challenging but by starting from small even from logo design, html, word press, affiliate marketing services you can earn big money as you become experienced. And also after 1-2 year experience you can earn 200000 to 100000 monthly. It is just required your hard work and patience.
Precaution:-You need to focus on one thing at a one time. If you want to create websites for offline clients then focus on that. Include your friends to make this project successful. Because on the internet we are always seeing new and creative methods to earn money and this makes people greedy for money. So, it is better to focus on your one skill and improve new skills in part time.
6. Apply for jobs where you think you have to
The world always required great people. Great people are like you, who are doing study, practising, working hard for the jobs, learning new skills, thinking. People like you who have the common sense that will help other to improve their life are great. A small job is enough to get start and other things grow naturally like personal development, career development etc.
How to do it?
(i) Research on government jobs, where mca is required. Research on what kind of job mca can do in government sector, and then learn those skills. Also do similar research on private companies.
(ii) Research on other mca degree holder. What they’re doing, how was their experiences and collects this kind of information and plan future steps accordingly.

Precaution:-Do not follow negative people in the company. Do not follow the people who are cheating behind the MD or owners. Just work honestly! Just focuses on your task and do not introduce yourself in office politics.
All above are my tested and experienced methods to earn money. I earned money several times by doing above 6 things. Even I started earning from this blog. I am still doing above things time to time when it is required. My experiences are gold and I value my skills.
I am still learning and working daily since 2006 in IT field. The experiences I am sharing here in this website is called blogging and this is called blog post you’re learning title is “how to earn money after mca degree?” And right now I am playing a role of a blogger sharing earning experiences to you. Everyone have their own experiences and it is our duty, hobby to learn from others. If you have knowledge, skills, hobbies, any creativity you think helpful for some people or for world then you can also do this.
How to do it?
(i) Buy a domain that is different than others. Buy hosting space and install Word Press on host’s server.
(ii) Share what you know such as: knowledge, skills, hobbies, solutions, any creativity etc. write 10 blog posts before you shared it with others.
(iii) Then index or inform about your domain or website to search engine by submit sitemap on Google Webmaster tools. Share or index your thoughts on Google and other search engines similarly.
(iv) Also learn how to blog but learn more technical things, just share what you think is enjoyable, knowledgeable, important to people who search on Google and visit your blog. Use Google analytics to track your blog visitors. See the performance and keep writing.
(v) Monetize your blog with Google AdSense to earn money.
(vi) Keep writing, updating, doing new things related to your hobbies and keep sharing it with others.
Benefits:- Blogging is like a hobby, like you saw people who write their diaries. The updated version of that diary today we called blog, and this diary is in front of billion users who like to read what you have for their benefits. And soon it will become earning source for you by advertising on your website.
There are so many other benefits like you can show the world who are you? You can share your thoughts internationally? You can test your thinking and thoughts, knowledge, creativity while competing with other people like you on Google.
Precaution: It is very tough, if you don’t know what to write. I think hundreds people start doing blogging daily and thousands are quitting. Blogging is for people who want to share things for free in the hope to make money from advertising. Many are successful, but now thousands are teaching on the internet about it and many misguiding people about blogging.
So, friends I want to close this topic here. Don’t worry, and sorry for that if you don’t like any above point. No problem, just research any above point on Google and select the best method that will help you to earn money after MCA.
