Where should I look for part-time work?

From websites, to newspapers, networking to door-knocking, there are many ways to approach finding the right part-time or casual job to suit your schedule and lifestyle choice. When applying for a job, it is best to prepare a neatly presented resume which details your past work experience and highlights any relevant skills that will make you ideal for the position.
