Jobless in Philly?

Never fear. We’ve been perusing Craigslist and snooping around Philly job listings, and we found a couple for starving college students.

Living near campus? – Athletics is looking for workers for its phone-a-thon. Check out the listing on the portal for details, or contact Phil Telan at teanp1@lasalle.edu for more info.

If you aren’t on campus, keep your chin up. There are still plenty of job opportunities out there.

Be a babysitter!Some of you out there may like taking care of drooling tykes. Here you go:

Or a camp counselor – Less drool, more teaching and playing sports. Though most of these are only for a few weeks at a shot, it’s a solid way to earn some summer cash.

Nonprofits your thing? – Like saving the environment and talking to strangers? Though these are generally canvassing jobs, kind where you have to walk around with a clipboard and coerce people into giving you money, they are for good causes and offer monetary compensation. Commission jobs may be daunting, but at least you’ll be out of the house and (potentially) getting paid.

Food Services – Whether is be as a server, baker or bartender, tons of restaurants and diners are looking for summer help. Though some require specific work experience, if you sift through these you will find plenty you could try out.

Like to Write? – These job offers seem a little sketchy, but some may be worth checking out. A lot are unpaid, but scattered about are some freelance jobs for kids in the area. http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/search/wri?query=freelance

But beware! Some of these marketing jobs you can find on job Web sites are those miserable pyramid scams or other underhanded businesses (see Pure Marketing, 3W, Titan Marketing, etc.). Do some research before you sign on. The following Web site offers a list of underhanded business schemes and testimonials from employees who got out. http://www.ripoffreport.com/

Good hunting, all.
