The best way to find this type of job is through networking. Talk to friends in your classes and find out if they know anyone or have parents that could connect you with people for a job. If you are a part of clubs at school the professors may also have insight as well as leads for networking. You might also want to look at job boards for internships. An internship is the way to get your foot in the door and then impress them enough to hire you! Go to multiple websites like the UN and see if there are internships or job postings that might fit your experience/education. I wish you the best of luck in your career! Always remember that networking is the key to getting future jobs so never burn bridges and always stay in touch with people. You never know when you will be looking for a new job down the road. Best of luck, stay positive and enjoy the ride! Christy
Most part time jobs do not require references, depending on the industry. Event those that do, the hiring manager is looking for people they can count on. Be confident, go into the place offering the job if possible and look the person in the eye and shake their hand. Often part time employees are considered not reliable. Managers are looking for people that will show up, work hard. Let them know what your ultimate goals are also if this job will help towards those. Managers like to hire people that will grow.
If you have any volunteer experience, you can use this as a reference and as a part of your resume. Any organizations that you belong to in school are also good resources. As many others have said, it is all about who you know. Teachers, mentors, administrators are your school, leaders of any group or organization that you may belong to can be a great resource! Happy job hunting!
It can be hard to find a job when you do not have the networking and references to do so. You mention that you are a student. You could ask one of your professor, or a TA to be a reference.
