    I'm on an unpaid student work placement until sometime in July next year. I really need some sort of part time paid work to earn a bit of extra money, but some places ask for at least 12 months of work, so probably won't hire me if they know I'll be leaving before that period, which I likely will be as my student placement lasts for just less than 12 months and I'm already several weeks into it.

    What sort of work do you think I should be looking for in this situation, and how would I find it? I was thinking maybe working in a pub, but I don't know how to go about getting that sort of job considering local pubs don't tend to advertise as widely as a supermarket would do.
