What jobs can a 20 year old girl get that pay at least $300/week??

I'm a college student, so I cannot work 7 days a week. I need a job where I can work about 5 days a week but I need to make at least $300 a week (for bills and I am trying to save up for an apartment.)
At my current job they can only give me 3 days a week, so I am only making about $140/week since I'm only scheduled for 3 days.
I was thinking about an office job, like a receptionist maybe..I heard those jobs pay $12 or more per hour!
Any other ideas?? I need a new job asap because I'm not making nearly enough money!

When I was a full time student (8 hours per day, M-F) I worked parttime as a cashier at a supermarket. I made about $200/week -but I only worked about 4 days of the week for 4 hours..and I got T1/2 on every Sunday that I worked (6 hours on Sundays). I started with $8/hour there and told them to put me on every Sunday.

Coborn's is the company I worked for -they treat their employees very well.

If you already have at least 60 college credits, you might consider being a substitute teacher. That is great work for college students. You can work about 3 days a week and make close to 100 a day depending on the school you sub for.

a little off the topic but i'm slightly confused.. seems like $140 - even $300 is a little low?
obviously i know the exchange rate in australia is only slightly different than the us but over here minimum wage for someone that age doing that kind of job (5 days) is at least around $500 a wk?
interested because i'd like to do a college transfer over there one day... can you live off $300/wk?

I hate to say it - call center but they do pay a decent wage (but I would only accept inward bound call center work rather than trying to sell all the time from a script.)
