    over a year.

    Does "over a year" here mean "in a year" or "during the period of one year" or a mistake?

    32)OPen any newspaper and the message seems to be that, unless you're earning a Bill Gates's salary, you'll be renting a house until 2100...To make more money, get a second job in the evenings or weekends. Sounds tiring, but it's probably beneficial over a year.

    "Over a year" can have different meanings. In this case it means "during the period of one year". At the end of that year, the person will have made more money.
