Have you checked any on-campus resources for employment options such as a career development center? The reason I ask is because up until recently I was in your exact situation. I was very frustrated that people I knew in high school were out-earning me and holding management positions in retail or hospitality while I "wasted" time and money in school. I decided to talk to a guidance counselor for my department and learned about the resources that were available to me as a student. There are many companies who prefer to hire college students and post openings directly into the school's site for students to browse. Most colleges have some version of this either online or at least a physical office that handles such matters. I would definitely recommend that you inquire about this when talking to a school counselor or professor of yours. I ended landing a job that nobody else had applied for and am now in my last year of college. good luck

Now that I actually have more of a direction as to where I wanna go next, I'm feeling much more cocksure about myself and what I wanna do. I also changed my major to finance with a risk management minor thrown in. Accounting itself wasn't really as interesting to me as I had thought it would be and I think I have an idea of what field I wanna end up doing work for.
