Part-time jobs are opportunities to prepare for you career. So be strategic by exploring career fields that interest you and building your resume and professional connections. Don't just get an easy, on-campus job that pays the most; get a part time job that's related to the field you're exploring. For example, if you want to be a teacher, get a tutoring job.
On-campus jobs are managed by Financial Aid, but not all jobs are posted (e.g. TA/Tutor positions). So ask each department or office if they are hiring. Also, be sure to check on with Financial Aid about your eligibility for work study.
