    Part time jobs for student?

    What kind of jobs are available for students wishing to earn some money to meet living expenses? I'm speaking specifically of California. How many hours does one have to give everyday? Any bit of information would be of help!

    Part Time Student Jobs In California

    Your best bet will be to look for a job on your campus. These jobs tend to pay a bit better and are more flexible with your school hours. Unfortunately they can be tough to get because priority goes to students who have been granted work study. (I'm assuming you're talking about being a college student, if not disregard that first suggestion.) Your other options are generally retail and the food industry. Supermarkets are generally the easiest place to get a job because they're so big and hire lots of people, plus there aren't really any requirements for getting a job there besides being legal. You can also try both fast food places and regular restaurants, they tend to hire a lot of younger people. The other option is working in shops at the mall. I would recommend choosing the mall nearest you and just walking into every store and asking if they're hiring, most will at least give you an application that they'll keep on file, even if they're not hiring at the moment. Unfortunately, minimum wage versus the cost of living in most states isn't all that great, but if you find a cheap apartment with some other students you can probably make ends meet living off of working 20 hours a week or so. Don't expect to be living in luxury or anything, but it can normally put food on the table and a roof over your head, as long as you find a cheap place to live.

    Yeah I am talking about college and will definitely apply for work study. But I've heard selection is based on merit and CV, so I wanted to check out my other options. I'm not looking for luxury at all, just enough to keep me put in college. I don't want to have to quit studies for lack of money. Thank you so much for your suggestions, they'll be of great help! I will particularly keep in mind the malls and restaurants option.

    You can work at a summer camp, or work at another store at night. You could also try seeing if you could find any job working online and then just work online when you have some free-time and work for as long as you can.

    They are far from glamorous, but I'd say that pretty much any grocery store is always looking for part time baggers, cashiers and shelf stockers.

    Most of the students are doing jobs their, finding a suitable job is a little bit tough. You can drop your C.V's at the places you are interested to work, hope you find positive results soon.
