Asking for a 21 year old friend. What things can my friend recovering from surgery do to earn a little money and/or prepare for a better job (currently works retail).

My friend is 21 and last week had knee surgery. She will be in an immobilizer and doing phys therapy for a while.
She currently works retail and won't be getting any hours for 6-8 weeks probably.
Do you have any suggestions on things she can do to make a little cash on the side while at home (full access to computer/internet).
I suggested she look into Amazon's Mechanical Turk, but I haven't seriously looked at that in a few years.
In conjunction or alternatively what can a HS Grad (and most likely future college goer) do NOW to help perk up her resume and become more desirable for better paying jobs. She's not looking for a career, but a decent part time or full time job she can do while taking some classes would be great.
My advice was to go through and do a bunch of Excel and Office tutorials.
She has a flare for presentations (and PowerPoint) and enjoys that as well.
BONUS QUESTION: If you had knee surgery, what did someone do for you that was super awesome or appreciated?
