Yeah...money is running low. I'm thinking starbucks or waiting tables, so if anyone worked there tell me about it, and tell me you're job if you're in college.

Find an on-campus job. There's a lot of them, you just have to look for them and find the right one.

OK

think of a job that would be humiliating to do when your older eg when your 25-30 and any job within that catagory is perfect for a teenager

eg

McDonalds or any fast food
washing dishes

etc

I highly recommend an on-campus job. Generally speaking your boss(es) will be a little more flexible when it comes to your work schedule (i.e. fitting work around classes). Back when I worked on campus, I worked in the rec center as a lifeguard and also in one of the computer labs.

Actually, Starbucks has a lot of great things to offer (atleast here in St. Louis, where they have to fight against St. Louis BreadCo, or Panera, for customers). It pays about $9 an our starting, has a lot of extra benefits, flexible hours, etc...

when i was in college my mate got a job in a printing works, printing magazines and flyers posters and things, well turned out most of his work was printing porno magazines. its gotta be better than working in starbucks.
after 3 years of college that guy owned a sh*t load of porn.

my health teacher said an EMT-Basic (first level) would be a good job for a college student. Only a few weeks of training after you graduate and way better pay than starbucks.

Everyone knows the best jobs in college are of the blow variety.

i can personally say that lifeguarding is a great job. it takes some tougher training with the swimming and cpr and first aid, but its totally worth it. most gigs you only have to sit there and lifeguard [aka sit on a chair and watch people swim], though some places might need you helping with maintanance.

on the upside, theres easy work, girls in swimsuits, tanning in the summer

on the downside, theres the friggin brats, FAT girls in swimsuits, and burning in the sunlight.

Work-Study jobs tend to pay decently and have convenient hours and location. If you don't merit work-study based off of the FAFSA, you are pretty much out of luck for this though.

Food services, convenience stores, recreational facilities (pools, bars, gyms, activity centers, etc) may have jobs around campus and are worth checking out.

Local businesses may have use for you as well, depending on your particular skill set. Marketing / business majors may or may not have luck with this, and IT / tech oriented people have a good shot at finding decent part-time jobs.

If you have any language skills, tutoring may be an option. This goes for English as well, though foreign languages would be more valuable. Math skills are also helpful, and I'm sure there is some demand in your area for math and/or science tutors for college classes. You have to know the material to be of much use tutoring, which may limit your options.

Selling weed tends to be popular at college campuses, but only a select few can make any money at it. Quality product, reasonable price for the area, people skills, and ability to put in random hours are helpful for this. You need to have connections to succeed, so lack of a good supplier or a customer base will severely limit success in this field. The laws where you are may make the risk prohibitive. Some areas in the US are very lenient, while others will screw you easily. Private universities sometimes don't throw kids out for drug offenses (they have their own enforcement system) so it may be less risky at one, but you need to know the laws beforehand. Again, few people actually make money with this, and it can be a pain in the ass, so not the best option. Just putting this out here in case someone was going to ask or suggest it.

If you are at a university that has a decent size graduate school and a research endowment you may have ample opportunity to participate in research studies (if some class or other hasn't required you to do so as of yet). Go to the psych department and see if they have fliers for participation in studies, or ask around and see if that occurs where you are. Most studies will throw you $10-$20 for some quick and painless survey taking, and the more involving ones that require multiple sessions or something extensive like fMRI or a blood test will often pay good money for your participation. Its a quick way to get easy cash, so very worth checking out.

Lastly, check your university's website. There should be an employment site somewhere, though the adequacy of resources will vary. It may point you towards job resources or opportunities in the area, or at least give you an idea of where to look, so be sure to check it out.


Hope some of the above is helpful.

There's good money in supplying pharmaceuticals...

Get an on campus job of some sort. Ask around in your department, and also check out being a tutor if your a good student. On campus jobs are great because you can easily arange your schedule based on exams and term papers. And it saves a lot of time in terms of travelling to and from work. YOur at school already, go work, then hit the books at the library.

Well while i am at college (UK) i work as a part time bookmaker, the money is good and the shop i work in is quiet = paid to watch sports....

On campus is more convenient, but working supermarkets at nights is a friggin steal I reckon.

...and you are very good, try teaching guitar lessons. My freind does it and he gets not only paid by the hour, but $17 a lesson. He has about 7 lessons each work day

That really is an awesome idea, myself i work in a supermarket. It's chill and all, but you gotta work hard and i get about 4 euros ($ 10) an hour. So the payment per month is around 200 euros($300). It's fun work though, you can screw around with coleages and stuff
