Since you are currently in college, it is a very good idea to try to get a job at your college's computer lab.  You can get paid for helping those that don't understand computers when they have a problem and for maintaining the computers (i.e. putting paper in the printers, reinstalling Win95 when it breaks, defragging the hard drives, etc.).  Its not that hard a job, and also since you work at the college they will understand that you have to study.  An outside employer may not.

All of the good jobs, those well-paying, require a degree from college and a few years experience.  So study hard and make good grades; the jobs will follow naturally after college ends.  Also, the work in the computer lab will probably count towards that few years experience that's also required.

A good job to aim for for when you graduate from college, if you want to get into installing software, is a computer technologist for a business or school district.  Those are the people that maintain that company's or school's computers and related technology.  They fix software problems, install new software, fix broken machines, that kind of thing.

I worked in a computer lab on campus once before and it was a dead end.  I already knew how to do the basic computer things but I needed to know more.  So now I am applying for a computer operator job and trying to get more technical skills. I will be going back to college in August to take a Pacal Class.
