Summer and Weekend Jobs for College Students

Being a college student can be tough. From exams, to homework, to busy schedules. But what is the toughest thing about going to college is money. Even with help from FAFSA, grants, and student loans, it is hard to go to college without having a job.

This creates an interesting problem because faced with already full schedules and lots of assignments, it's hard to find time for a job, and even harder to survive.

After avoiding the experience for over a year now, having had many jobs in the past, many of which were during school semesters, I am now faced with the age-old question again: how am I going to provide for myself?
Maybe I Should Try This?

I honestly don't want to live with my parents forever and their thirty cats. I'd really like to get moving in my life and get my own place again. It is really difficult to find a job, but if I can find a decent job I can do on the weekends when school starts, I will snatch it up in a heart beat.

Alas, to my dismay, it is really hard to find a job outside of sales, retail and food service that pays decent money and that I won't get bored with or hate in a few months. What am I to do?

What kind of work do you do? How do you get by during college?
