If it's crap ... We'll tell you
I will be going Part time for my Studies soon and thus will be job searching.
so tell me Spillio's what has worked for you and what hasn't in your job searching methods.
That's about right.
after working as a dish pig at a butchers for 1.5 years I think most jobs would be a step up, Although I think avoiding a job where I have to communicate with the public is a good idea.
If your area's like where I live, the pub's a good place to get the word on what's open, especially with entry level and part time work. There are always people picking up gigs of all types, from shop assistants to clerical to casual and part time labourers on certain long term projects. I've found that sometimes, for various reasons, people don't advertise positions like these in regional areas. There's a Uni in our town and most students want to travel into the city for work. I guess this leaves a lot of opportunity for someone who's keeping an ear out for who is hiring. My neighbors' sons on both sides got jobs this way. One at an independent service station and the other at a car detailer. They're students as well. While I was waiting for more than a year for my permanent residency I picked up plenty cash in hand work and all but two jobs came from my local.
I'm actually moving house soon to a somewhat more rural place, will give it a shot.
If you're just looking for whatever part time work is available then I suggest going to shopping centers where there are a lot of stores for you to apply to. Write down the date you turn in your application to every place you go to. If they're hiring wait a week and call them up to check on their hiring status.
I've gotten 3 jobs because I would follow up with phone calls (one of them wasn't even hiring but gave me an interview anyways which resulted in me getting a job with them).
noted, Hopefully I don't forget to get their contact numbers.
you can't fool me, Megatron!
If you have to have a job or some money and you don't want to be fully commited to the work or business, I would suggest temp agencies. Of course some of the work you would get at temp agencies would be manual labor or tough physically but you'd be surprised at the different places that hire temp workes on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. I know looking for work can be a bitch especially when your a student so good luck.
I think looking for a full time job/career will be harder, I think I'm fairly solid so I'm not too fussed with some physical labor.
Submit an application. Call after a few days to see if they reviewed it and express your interest. On the application, don't limit your options as far as job preferences go. Be willing to do any job they may have.
you could also try odd jobs, babysitting, housekeeping/sitting, pet sitting, artistic modeling, etc there's always ads for them all over the internet. Speaking from experience, I'd stay away from any sort of disaster restoration places. There's also product testing and sperm/blood donating. good luck
