What are jobs that pay well for college students?

There are plenty, what kind of work are you looking for? Or, what is your degree focusing on?

I’m currently majoring in English. I’ve taken Criminal Justice, and Political Science Courses. I’m looking for a full time job, but I can’t find one that pays well enough to support me.

So hate to break it to you, but if you’re starting out, it’ll be a grind since you don’t have a technical degree (engineering for example). You also haven’t defined what “enough to support me” means. As far as what jobs specifically, if you’ve never worked anywhere it can be daunting to find a first job. Consider taking hourly work at something that isn’t your ideal place or pay. Longer term having the experience and selling the experience is what gets you better jobs later on.

Drug dealer. In fact, probably don’t need college degree

The English degree would help 😂

I expected real answers lol.



Nannying - in college I worked only maybe 20 hours a week and I was making about $400 per week
