While an internship would be ideal, it’s great that you have secured a job and have something to include on your resume. You can learn valuable skills through a part-time job that can translate well into a full-time career. Some of the skills you can develop and highlight on your resume could include communication skills, working with diverse groups of people, customer service, multi-tasking, training, finding ways to go above and beyond your day to day job responsibilities, etc. If there is a way for you to take on a project or additional job responsibilities that could relate to your major, I would recommend that. For example, if you’re a Finance major, find ways to potentially take on responsibilities with money, Excel or other relatable skills.
