In college, time is scarce, and because of that, very precious. At the same time, though, expenses in college pile up surprisingly quickly. A part time job is a good way to off-set costs while ensuring there’s enough time left over for academics and extracurriculars.

If you’re a college student looking for a part time job, the best place to start your job search is right on campus. There are tons of on-campus job opportunities, and as a student, you’ll automatically be given hiring priority. Plus, on-campus jobs eliminate commuting time, and can be a great way to connect with academic and professional resources at your university. Check with your school's career office or student employment office for help finding a campus job.

Of course, there are opportunities for part time work off-campus, too. If you spend a little time digging for the right kind of part time jobs, you’ll end up saving yourself time (and saving up money, too!) when you find a job that leaves you with enough time to get your school work done, too.

Here are the top 15 part time jobs for college students.
