Get a job, sell stuff you dont use on ebay, mow neighbors lawn, clean house(if you get paid to do it), make bets that you know your correct with, put into those legit competitions to win money or prizes(iPhone) or when you enter in them and you win something you dont want sell it for money.
Get out and network with people through alumni, organizations, groups and associations that you like. Volunteer a lot to network as well. Take whatever job you get from who you know. Once you have your job, hoard money like hell after your bills are paid and invest in interest earning stuff.
