I work part-time on campus for some bike, beer, and computer money. At the beginning of each semester I bought used text books off students and resold them for major profit on Amazon.
Thats great, congrats spartacus!

Thanks for the great idea too lol

I sell car and truck accessories at a small business store. We have done some pretty big names. (Ocho's car, Rudy's Benz, etc...)

But mostly we do redneck stuff, lift kits, hid's, wheels/tires...

I love it.

I'm a 22 year old Computer Science student working at whatever part-time, full-time, seasonal, or temporary job that I can get in this hellhole that is Rockford, IL. The good news is that unemployment last month went down to 17.9%

I own a PC repair business here in Philadelphia. I do all the regular repair shop stuff like virus removals, networking, hardware and software fixes, custom builds (of course), etc. I also have some visual content creation customers that I do things for, like PowerPoint presentations, promotional videos, and promotional content for giant LED displays and message centers. I even do tech support for a very high-end strip club, a doctor's office, and a lawyer.

I also get a lot of other technical work when people don't know where else to go or who to talk to. For instance I do things like set up giant car-wrap printers, run network cable and set up AV and home automation systems. One of my customers even pays me $85 an hour to look at porn. Please don't ask, because I really can't get too specific.

I pretty much get it where I can get it.

I'm a shift supervisor for Starbucks. I hate my job - I feel I'm the most competent at my job, and yet I cannot move up because I don't kiss enough ass. And when I mean kiss ass, I mean agree with bad ideas. I really need to go back to school, but I have a baby on the way, so I'm kind of stuck now.

Back in the day, I used to be a Title Abstractor for a Title Insurance company before the real estate industry went bad and the company I worked for declared bankruptcy.
