So how exactly do you find a full time(ish) temporary summer job?

    All I've been able to find is part time work. And that means 10 hours a week on minimum wage which is pretty much useless.
    How do I find a job that I do every day (or 5-6 days a week I guess) with decent hours so at least I make significant cash during the summer?
    I'm a student with little work experience. Do you know of any ways to get something like a supermarket job? Or retail in general that doesn't require experience? Or doing blue collar work? Pretty much anything else? Not picky...

    A lot of those part time jobs that you'll be seeing will be 10 hrs contracted but there's usually over time to be had cause people go on holiday especially in the summer.
    Anyway some money is better than no money and there's nothing stopping you from continuing applying for jobs if you get a part time one
