usability testing (part-time) jobs?

Hello,

I'm a college student and am looking for a part-time job. I was thinking I should try to search for agencies that do usability testing, etc. in my area and try to get a job as a usability tester or something like that?

Doesn't sound too exciting, but it would probably be more fun to me than working at the local super market, plus I might learn a tad bit about usability from it, too.

However, I was wondering if I might be the completely wrong person for that as I know too much about the web already (I wouldn't want to lie to people and act as if I had no idea whatsoever).

What do you people think of this?

Well, if you're in Redmond Washington, this might be a good bet.

Otherwise, you would probably have to have a significant amount of commercial software development going on in your area.

I once had an interview at a company here in San Diego that I suppose offers the ultimate job for a college student - surfing pr0n.

No - I wasn't applying for that job! But they pointed to a locked door, and said that's what they do in there.

It was one of the companies that sells a product for blocking undesirable websites in schools, libraries, etc.

Instead of looking to be a test subject, perhaps you could intern with a firm which does usability testing. Even if they only pay you what you would get at a supermarket, the experience would be worth many times that.
