I'm in college, so I'm not exactly employed, ignoring occasional jobs here and there. I'd like to apply for a few new credit cards, and I noticed I don't have employment on my credit report. My current score (with my very limited credit history) is decent, and I was wondering if I should find more long-term employment, even part-time, for the benefit of the applications. How much does employment contribute? Also, the earning potential for the part-time job would be reasonably high (mid-five figures), so how much would wages contribute?
Feel free to let me know if more information is necessary for a constructive answer.
