Anyone have any suggestions for campus jobs to pick up some extra spending money? Which are generally the most popular amongst students?

I was thinking about being a the university bus driver at Virginia when I'm not taking classes. It seems flexible, pays fairly well 8.00/hr and gives me a chance to meet new people everyday.
Other than that, I'll look around for some openings.

the BEST job is working in the student store where they sell soda, candy, etc.
Maybe not best in terms of money, but I had friends that did that at a large urban campus (UCLA) and they were recognized around campus by literally *thousands* of students. Talk about getting to know people at a large school ...

Hey, that's a good idea Mikemac . I really loved working as a writing tutor at my community college (and I hope to continue that at UCLA). So whatever you are good at-- become a tutor for it! You'll meet a lot of interesting people, and get paid pretty well too.

HAHA goog point, Mikemac.
I go to UCLA, and I totally recognize the cashiers at the UCLA store on the hill. And they know me by name too since i'm in there stocking up on sugar so much :-P - you think I'm kidding...
But I agree with what has been said so far - I work as a computer tech (and sometimes network admin it seems) on campus, but there are such a wide range of jobs for students, it will be easy to find one that suits you.

IMO one of the best campus jobs you can have would be in the bookstore. The employees in our college bookstore get HUGE discounts on their textbooks and supplies and they get first dibs on the books that come in.

Yeah. campus bookstore job has its advantages.
i work at a library in my university during the academic year. i like the job because i can do hw when the desk isn't busy. also, i get free printing and copying.
very flexible hours because college libraries are open all day and into late night.

Forget about campus jobs unless you want to make slave wages. Look into being a security guard. It pays very well depending on the area, and you can study as you work which is an awesome bonus. I have worked 40 hours a week as a security guard throught my college career and it pays for everything while finishing up school in 4 years.

slave wages... they pay you well at uw-madison. I'm working at a basic food service dining hall, and they pay 7.95/days and 8.70/nights and closing. I'll make whatever they've got for that kinda money! Downside: not many hours, but you can sub in for some people.

I was wondering if i get a job at a target or walmart around here what would happen during the breaks when dorms are closed? I live like 3 hours away from my school so it would be impossible to drive to and from work everyday when im not in school. Do they normally let college kids off during these times or what?

how hard is it for first years to get campus jobs? does senority play a role? is it first come first serve? does past work experience play a big role? which jobs are filled first? last?
is there usually a list of job openings on campus? or do you have to ask each place?

Play poker. Well.

I got a job working the front desk in a dorm. Basically, I sit there and study.

I'm thinking about tutoring.

i'm actually going to transfer within my job. i work for the marriott and there are marriotts everywhere i'm applying to so that should be nice. i'll probably just work 1-2 days a week though.
|By Bumblebee83 (Bumblebee83) on Monday, September 20, 2004 - 03:29 pm: Edit|
$7.95 is a good wage???? How do you people pay your rent? Yikes, I'd have to work WAY too much to pay my bills if I only made that.
I'd suggest waiting tables. It's not fun, I'm not going to lie, but it's easy, and you don't have to work 40 hours a week to survive. I think I average about $15 an hour, and I work at a crappy restraunt.

My son is life guarding at the local YMCA at $8.75/hr. He has also put his name in to the local VFW to volunteer to play Taps at funerals as a service to vets and their families. They usually give him a $25-50 donation which he sometimes keeps and sometimes passes on to the church.

My D will be working in a research lab, essentially getting 10/hr to help a grad student with research. Since she wants to pursue research anyway, sounds like a good deal?

i work part time while attending school.. i'll be really cutting back my hours once november comes around.. probably will go from about 30-40 per week to 10 or so.. just because I can. and then, after christmas is over, i have every intention of buying a new(or slightly used) car

i'm selling packages with laundry detergent and dryer sheets. got the supplies cheap at costco and i'm selling it $1 for one load or $1.50 for 2 loads.
|By Kwtortoise (Kwtortoise) on Friday, October 01, 2004 - 08:44 pm: Edit|
I work at the library ang get $5.15 and hour. But, it is enough spending money for me, and I get homework done on the job. Convenient hours too.
