18 Years Old, need to earn some Money asap

I speak fluent English and German, and can understand Italian. I'm just your average Joe with average grades.


I'l do any work that pays minimum wage. I don't plan on making a career here. I just need some money to get by. An apprenticeship is not an option as it doesn't offer me enough money. If I had more time on earth I'd consider it, but my reality is I need to maximize the amount I can earn so I can go on my final journey.


What options are there?
I've already finished some applications for the obvious places (Mcdonalds, Starbucks). Is there anything a bit lower then that? Really any directions would help me a lot, I have no idea how big the job market even is, this is all very new to me.

Freundliche Gruesse!!

What makes you so desperate to earn "some" money asap and risk your career and future ?

Even though apprentice pays less, It offers you a profession and a fixed income in future.

There is no minimum wage.

However, prostitution is legal.

Re: 18 Years Old, need to earn some Money asap

Assuming you have a permit to work here I would suggest bars, with your English some of the English/Irish pubs might be a solution. 25.00 an hour plus tips is a reasonable wage for temp unskilled work. Just go in some and ask

Re: 18 Years Old, need to earn some Money asap

@kashif
I can't afford to waste more then 1-2 years of my life when I won't be living long after it.

@st2lemans
I didn't know that was the case, maybe if I offered to take a mcdonalds job for 1000 less I would have higher chances of getting it?

@dodgyken
I haven't and won't.

@Castro
I'm fine mentally. But my body is dying very quickly.

@grumpygrapefruit
A permit, as in an Auslaenderausweiss B? If that's not enough I could try getting a Swiss pass, since I meet all the requirements. It's just I'v read it takes at least 2 years for one of those to be verified due to the amount of paperwork.

Yes, of course a permit, you can't work here without having one - at least not legally.

Re: 18 Years Old, need to earn some Money asap

I can see you speculating your lifespan to justify your monetary needs. Very sorry to even imagine this situation.
Hope you can find peace !

Re: 18 Years Old, need to earn some Money asap

I could be wrong, but if I thought I only had a couple more years left in me I dont think I would waste my time looking for a crappy job and posting on EF! Would you?

Funny story. They wanted me to come to Zurich for the interview. I conversed in English of course while arranging this and said I'd need a translator.

They arranged one for Arabic just because I had an sort of arab sounding surname Luckily she spoke English also.
