Remember that employers value skills developed through academic work, volunteerism, extracurricular activities and other experiences that are applicable to the work environment. Not all the skills you learn from these experiences will be job-specific and therefore can be valuable in a variety of work settings. Even routine types of student jobs can demonstrate to employers that you have been a successful employee. If a job requires very specific experience, you might consider finding a more routine position in a setting similar to where you would eventually like to hold a job with greater responsibilities.
