How do I get a part time job in some field that I have no experience in?

I currently work as a certified nursing assistant. It's an EXCELLENT job for those who aren't like me and can stand to change old people's diapers, help them walk, feed them, and all the other things I need to do. I realize that having my job is more than what I described, however, I want to do something else until I graduate from the medical transcription program. And no, I'm not going to be a nurse, I'll have to go to more school before I can even consider it and plus I won't like that any more than my current job. All I want is a part time job that can make ends meet.

Try temp agencies. They usually place people based on how well they do on certain tests; i.e., Word, Excel, PowerPoint. If you don't have these skills, go to the library and practice.
