hey I'm on my CPT and currently doing my Co-op in VA with company ABC. They are paying me hourly rates, during last few weeks they were only able to gave me 25 hours/week. My question is can I do some evening or weekend work with some other company in order to get my full 40 hours/week on CPT I'm eligible to work 40 hours in a week.

I don't think so. Since the CPT I20 has the name of the employer. So I believe you can only work for that employer. But I think you can work part time at your school.

What if the job and campus are in different states??

On Part time CPT u can only work for 20 hours and on the full time CPT you are eligible to work for 40 hours per week and u can only work with the listed employee on the CPT I-20 and more over u can work on campus too . But if u r an intern u can't work in other job other than Campus .

If you don't have skills then its tough to get job everywhere be it india or USA , either ms or doctorate

As explained if you are on a part time CPT you cannot work for more than 20 hours a week.
With full time CPT, if you have a course registered in your college then you cannot work for more than 40 hours a week. Else you can work for more than 40 hours. Full time CPT with no courses registered in school means you are eligible to work for maximum hours.

Regarding employer, you should not work with any other employer other than who is listed on the CPT I20. I am not sure if you can work oncampus job also, please confirm before working.
Regarding doing multiple jobs with CPT, find a project under the same employer, so that the employer can run higher pay for you. But as a reminder, getting too high pay in CPT is also a bad sign unless you have a prior work experience.
