    Anyone got any?

    Because the "Hello, have you got any part time work available?" doesn't really work.

    Thanks

    Go everywhere, have a CV on you all the time you're looking, go to the far out places that people won't think of, and don't specify part time when you ask - it closes too many doors from the start.

    Look at websites, and in your local paper. Ask your friends/family if they know anywhere with vacancies. Or go to an agency.

    Don't be picky and try sites like gumtree and jobcentreplus.

    In my opinion handing out CVs is a waste of time and effort if you are going to uni, because the shops just look at it and see you wont be around for long.

    I have no idea how im going to make enough money for next year at uni
