    How many hours a week does this unpaid internship gig take up? If it's a lot, it's going to be a big barrier to making money, as a lot of your time and energy will be spent on something that doesn't give much reward in the short term. I guess such things look good on resumes? *shrug*

    If youre reasonably normal looking, sociable, good at makeup and smiling you can probably make a killing bartending in the city.
    yay!

      Does your university have a career center?

      Mine had this thing where you could apply to get paid for an unpaid internship. (But in general, I'd bet they'd have a lot of resources re: summer jobs)

        Bartend. In nyc. You'll make that in a month. Easily. My buddy bartends 3 nights a week in a dive bar in a small town in nj and he makes a grand a week. Easily. Way more sometimes.

          I got a better job at a well-known company after taking it and also got a check for $800 out of the blue from my mom.

          The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

            Also, if you have a pickup, go around an pick copper wires and products people are just tossing out. You can break a lot of them down for raw materials and make some decent cash off it.

              Magnolia-- for pet sitting, did you find your customers yourself, or did you use an agency?
              Both... the agency I works for takes a huge cut, so I mostly just do my own now.

                Sell your car. Quit your phone and internet plans, quit cable. That's probably a good chunk of change right there.

Waitressing seems like a reasonable alternative, bartending as well. Retain your dignity, don't lower yourself, somethings are more important then money, dignity and self esteem are two.
                    When I first read this I reacted the way you did. Then I remembered a TV show on a Las Vegas cat ranch. I was stunned at the amount of money that lots of college girls made during the summer. and there was certainly no problem with dignity. I think if I was that age again I might at least look into it a bit. How dignified are unpaid debts? It's a thought.

                      What is your major in? The Google Summer of Code lets your participate in open-source coding projects with a $5000 stipend. There's also a program run in parallel just for women to encourage more to apply; these projects aren't necessarily programming-based. https://live.gnome.org/OutreachProgramForWomen
