Most retail jobs want seasonal employees in place by Thanksgiving so you may be a little late ... restaurants are probably a long shot with the nigh unemployment. Just keep plugging away.

thx. I'm just gonna keep looking and applying. Sent in Aps 2 weeks ago. Hoping i can get a call real soon.

follow up, don't wait for a phone call ... there are probably dozens if not hundreds of candidates

Dont follow-up too soon. You dont want to sound desperate.

desperate for what?  he's looking for seasonal work, not trying to get on with a law firm.

You can try either valet parking at a nice hotel or restaraunt or one of those big mega car washes like the one on Gandy Blvd in Tampa, that's what I did while in school in my early 20's and made some pretty good money.

I did that. It is a bust-your-butt job, but they pay Union wages which are great for an inexperienced college kid (like $15-18/hr).

Some stores (Dillards, Macy's, Best Buy) will hire you on a commission only basis if you ask. Take it if you are in kitchen goods, small appliances, electronics, because most the employees are just HS kids milking the clock and it is EASY to hustle to the customers and rack up big sales on stuff they were going to buy anyway.

If you got a car, insurance and a good driving record, deliver pizzas. Decent wages, plus mileage and decent tips, and crew pies several times a night.  Great way to earn some cash and possibly run over cats and poodles at the same time.

Go to the Casino. It's one of few businesses that is thriving and if you're out by 12 then you can work a full shift. EVERYONE there is making bank.

I think it depends on if they sell beer or not.

you only have to be 18 to legally sell beer. 21 to legally drink it.

I'm a full time college student right now and I always turn my hobbies into a business. I am training to become a personal trainer so I take some of my buddies to the gym and put them on workout programs and give them motivation (coming off pregnancy girls, friends trying to bulk up) and they pay me a little here and there. Also E-Bay is always a good way to make money, as long as you have a little cash and a pay-pal account, post things up on there and make it marketable. Really make your self sound trustworthy and put down personal information like your E-mail, buyers on E-bay are 10x more likely to buy from you if they trust the seller.

Besides that I'm a volunteer fireman, it's not a paying job, but I save $1,700 dollars off my tuition, free gym membership among other benefits. If none of those are interest you, I have buddies that are working at restaurants leaving with $200+ on a single night, on a good day of course, and like previously mentioned the tips only get better during the holidays.

Good Luck.

How do you look in a G string?

I'm 6'3 205 pounds. I have nice firm and toned body. I can dunk

I would think that there would only be a very small, specialized niche for that sort of thing.

God I hope anyway.
