If you are a student searching for part-time jobs, read this quick and easy guide. Don't just settle for 'something'. Check out the four places where you can get the job you want, here.
Go to your alma mater
This is the school or college where you were studying. Sometimes, these job openings are posted, but not at other times. The best thing to do is to ask your teacher first. She may not have all the answers, but she can direct you to the right person. For instance, a college may have openings for course consultants and they may reserve these jobs for their own students only. In another instance, a secondary school may be in need of a supply teacher (also known as a relief or substitute teacher). Getting a job from your alma mater may not seem 'cool' to you, but you will agree that it's convenient. After all, you are used to the surroundings and you do know some of the teachers. Getting around is not an issue and you know how 'things' work here.
Go to CraigsList
There are all kinds of jobs posted here from temping jobs to jobs for graduates. You have many choices and you can also choose to work online or offline. Be sure that you only apply for legitimate jobs and never pay to get a job, or the possibility of one. Also, stay away from 'jobs' that pay little to nothing.
Go to an online tuition service/agency
If you are good at one or more subjects, sign up at a tuition agency to teach young pupils who need your services. The agency matches you up with pupils based on subject, location, time availability and your pricing. You in turn, pay them a percentage of the tuition fees for their effort. Giving tuition online is another possibility that you may want to explore. This allows you to work from home.
Go to a job board
An online job board is free to use and has many job openings from temporary jobs to permanent positions. Some of the jobs are telecommuting ones too, which means that you can work from home. You may need to go to the office for interviewing though, before you are accepted.
