There are tons of part time jobs for students if you know where to look. Finding the right part time student job is the difficult part, as you want to find the job that is just right for you and your schedule. There are many employees out there that are willing to take advantage of cheap student labor, so shop around and try to get the one that also helps you build your resume while working doing online jobs.
Resume building for you or cheap labor for employer
There are two main types of part time jobs for students. On the one hand you have jobs where the employer takes advantage of the fact that you are young and need short-term employment. On the other hand you have the jobs where the employer actually harnesses your skills. To get the latter type of job, you need to put more effort in, as these are in high demand and can be difficult to find. It also requires that you have a particular skill. As an example, if you are good at computer programming, you could get a part-time systems administrator or monitoring job. If you are good with people and customer relations, you could get an office counter job at a University.
Chill summer jobs
Some students like to have a part time summer job that doesn’t require much responsibility. In that case you might want to apply for a job in a student cafeteria, which will let you work at a relaxed pace, and could possibly be a very social type of work where you can mingle with other students.
Always be on the look out
Keep you eyes and ears open, as some of the best student part time jobs are only past around through the “grapevine”. There are many stories of students finding part time jobs completely by accident, or through someone they know. An example, a student had a professor who was looking for other students to help him with a long term project, and just by being in his class and making friends with him he got one of the jobs. So, you never know when an opportunity might show up and knock on your door.
Also, there are plenty of online jobs for college students that you can do as part time.
