What is a good way for a college student to find a decent paying full-time job for the summer?
I am only a sophmore in college, but I am pretty good with a computer. I need to find a job after the spring semester ends in a few weeks. I was hoping to stay away from a retail store for once. Maybe a office job so I can stay out of the heat, but I am for labor jobs too, but they gotta pay. I have read about college students getting good summer jobs if they go to a temporary agency. Is that really true? If not then what would you suggest for me to look at so I may finance a nice summer vacation?
