Well, you can pick two answers if you are one of those working students... IE: Me.

What if you're a working student with two jobs.

Pick the one that earns you the most, or that is most likely to be your career.

Have you noticed that the average FTL listener is a full time student with a 100K+ /year income. WTF?

Warehousing. I work for the card company Pictura. Most of my job is putting stuff into boxes, putting the boxes onto crates, and moving the crates around with a manual forklift.

Some students also work, and make money.

Some students also live with wealthy family.

Some students may have 'sugar daddies' or 'sugar mamas'

Who knows....

Nothing really fits. I usually answer Finance/Investments or Professional on surveys.

Self Employed doesn't fit?

Anyway, I edited it to include Finance/Investments.

Professional is generally as bad as Self Employed... It's too broad. At least with self employed there are usually certain things advertisers can expect there... Professional is just way too vague.

Again with the difficult to classify.  I'm a homemaker first and foremost, and then I do some legal transcription from home.  Technically self-employed, but not what most advertisers would think when they hear "self-employed" as I only work for one company, but am an independent contractor.  Hmmm, I guess I'll just go with self-employed for now.
