try the BPO industry. they are always in need of english speaking young professionals. so if you are proficient in english and don't mind working at odd hours, give it a try. the salary there is pretty good but go only for well known companies 'coz some of them don't pay up in time!
happy job hunting!!!
It might be good not to mention how long you plan on working at a place, a lot of companies don't enjoy spending the time and money to train someone who's leaving soon.
Call centres are good to work at, they pay well, aren't very picky, and usually have a turn over rate of 3 months or so(ie after three months you'll go crazy and quit or they'll fire you!!). They're really good on resumes too!
If all else fails, fast food doesn't pay well but it's the easiest kind of work to get and keep. They're very temporary too.
Yeah I think you're out of luck just for winter break...
One of my favorite temporary jobs was working as a waiter, although they usually prefer experience, it is not always necessary. The best thing about it is the cash daily, if you are nice and can b.s. a little you can make really good tips (depending on where you are located). As far as the whole not having experience thing, you might consider lying. I normally wouldn't recommend that because if they catch you in a lie that is grounds for termination, but you are only looking for temporary work. So hopefully by the time they catch on it will be too late. Good luck again, I hope you find something.
investment banks recruit internship student in winter and summer vacations. However, they do the selection in the spring and autumn seasons. Try to look for a partime job in you local partime information supplier. Good luck.
