What are some part time jobs where you get to use your hands and learn a skill? I'm in college and work part time but I want to work somewhere where I'm doing more than working a cash register, customer service, doing mindless shit, etc. i liked woodshop in high school but every woodshop/cabinet maker wants years of experience. Or should I just work a shitty menial job until I graduate and find a job related to my degree like every other 20 something college student?

Woodworking you may be able to find a job as like, idk, an assistant. They'd probably prefer someone with sone training at a technical college so they don't have to teach you literally everything. That'll be the same for most jobs of that kind.

You could be a janitor though

Being a janitor seems like it fits more into the mindless category though..

I worked at a botanical garden during college. Do you have regional parks that hire seasonally?

Things off the top of my head:

prep cook

metal fab shop

framer (many mom and pop fine arts stores do their own framing)

marine service places (usually located in marinas/shipyards, work at first will just be menial shit like sanding off bottom coats)

What the other poster meant is that since you just want part time work, any place that does do this hands on work you're looking for, would rather have someone able to work fulltime and looking to get into the industry.

I recommend prep cook personally. Especially for catering/hotels, or as brunch prep for a decent restautant (usually only weekends).

That sounds pretty cool, I have a friend who does maitenence at a botanical garden and I'm pretty jealous. What did you do? I'm looking into it rn

That's the problem, every job I find that seems to fit wants full time, which I understand. Metal fab shop and framing usually want experienced full timers unfortunately.

in my region (central europe) there are agencies which specialise on coordinating temporary workers to places/companies that need them. It's manual but not skilled labor, but lets you gather experience. I was being assistant-person-thingie for a company doing pic related for three weeks. It was fun. There's also a lot of work at construction sites.

If you want to find entry into a skilled labor job on the side, maybe consider self-teaching. Like, if you want to do woodworking, check out Matthias Wandel on Youtube, and learn from what he does. Then get doing your own projects. And when you ask for a job at a woodshop, show them what you've done. This might be terrible advice, as nobody might take hobbyists seriously.
