Default summer job.. HELP!

Hi all, i need a summer job, need the cash for Uni. I can't seem to find anything at the moment, and my connections are virtually zero. Have been exploring all networking possibilities but the connections I have are all in fields which I am not qualified to work as. Any idea for finding summer jobs? I'm preferably looking at a job in the service industry (coffee shop, restraunt, etc) but at this point i'll take anything I can get. Help!

thanks.

If you'll take anything then drop your resume off everywhere. You'll get something. Maybe try and apply through one of those job placement agencies. Tell them what jobs you would prefer, list several and don't be too picky and they'll find you a summer job. You probably won't make great gobs of money but you'll get something. When i was 16 i worked at a gas station for a summer and i enjoyed that, maybe try that?

try a couple of temp agencies. it's a bit of a rip-off in that someone else takes a chunk of your pay, but at least you get some experience.

try looking at craigslist and see if anything fits you, but be careful with what you apply to

Im having trouble find a job in general, I just send in resumes everywhere possible, if you want to work retail, drop a resume off at every store in a local mall, thats what I did

Literally drop off your resume everywhere if you're looking for a summer job... and do it NOW or else they'll have people hired for the summer by the time you apply in June.

Well it's too bad you can't get paid for being an annoying soccer fan.

hahaha. only kidding pzabby.

Try applying at Starbucks. I worked at one for a few years. It's a decent paying job for what you do and i had a lot of fun there (hanging out with the other employees, stealing day old pastries, lots of free drinks, etc.)

ya know, I've been really wanting a job at starbucks but have no idea what to do that'll make me stand out and get a call back between the thousands of other applicants.

and well played KOP, well played.

by the sound of it you may have to beef up your resume. Maybe throw in a passable lie on there or two.

Look for a summer job at the University you plan on attending.

It's worth doing especially if it's just a summer job.

Make one of your friends or family members the reference.

Turn off your computer and hit the streets.

Face to face resume drop goes a lot father than an emailed one.

Dont dress like a gangster! Or a skate board punk!
