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).

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.
