Please…Halp. /leeloo

Hokay.
I need ideas, people. I am off from classes until July 8th – at which time I am back to a M-F, noon ’til two schedule.
So, time off, yay! Which is good and groovy and all. But, I need some cash in-flow in like, the worst way. I would *rather* not do the fast food/waitress thing. And I don’t want to start a real gig until I actually graduate due to not being able to be there during the day for various school-related reasons. (Oh, and y’all? This summer semester, and next fall semester and I. Am. Done.) I would like to do something that is vaguely related to the degree I am working on, if only because I’d like some current work history that I can use for nefarious job seeking purposes later.

My almost-MIL had suggested doing copy edit work on a consultant or contractual basis. That sounds lovely, but I am unsure how to start looking for that type of work. Plus, I am not sure if my resume is up to snuff.

Help me, Obi-webs. You’re my only hope.

  1. I don’t know your field or what subject matter, however every field seems to have it’s own association type thing. Perhaps start on those sites.  For example, I’m in HR and Payroll, so I’d start with job/contract searches on SHRM (Society for HR management) and the American Payroll Association sites.

    1. Go to the schools – the unis, the comm cols, the voc techs – put up notices for editing term papers, homework, thesis, etc. That’s what I’ve heard works. Also placing notices in the campus newspapers. I think I may do that when I get back to UNM/CNM….
