Summer is a time for freedom, fun, relaxation, and adventure.  For money to spend on meals out, clothes, tickets to concerts and amusement parks, and gas and tolls to the shore, a girl needs a job! Getting a summer job should not be a daunting task; many places are in need of workers, especially high school students. “I worked in the snack bar at my local swim club, and it was a great experience because I made money while being able to spend time with my friends at the club. I could even knock out some summer reading if I had down time!” says Lauren Uveges (’15). Here are some great ideas to help you if you’re considering a job:

1. Waitress/hostess

2. Cashier at a deli or ice cream place

3. Babysitter

4. Snack bar worker at a swim club or country club

5. Lifeguard

6. Dog walker

7. House sitter

Many job opportunities fall under these categories. To begin the hunt for a summer job, reach out to neighborhood mothers, create flyers with a short resume and phone numbers, look for “help wanted” signs or ask at local restaurants, grocery stores, and ice cream places. Summer jobs offer many great benefits: make money, get out a little, and even make new friends!
