Can anyone recommend a place to go to find summer camp counselor positions?
I am looking for a summer job as a camp counselor. I am a college student working towards a career as an elementary school teacher, so I would love a position working with younger children. I live in California, but I am open and interested in travelling. If anyone could direct me to an organization or website in this field I would greatly appreciate it.
Since you live in California, try the Girl Scouts of Northern California’s girl scout camps. They are amazing.
This is their website, they run 5 camps. Four overnight camps and one day camp in San Jose. Each camp has a different number of working days per summer so find the camp that fits your schedule or interests the most. Skylark Ranch usually runs all summer if you are looking for an all summer job. The rest of the camps are about half of the summer so you can do that if you are also planning on taking summer semester classes.
Camp is over for this summer but you can always work there next year.
Hope that helps!
How do you get a teen job part time?
In this economy it is impossible to find jobs, especially if you are a teen starting out. I live in the suburbs and I need money so I can save for college. Even if it is just a winter break job. I plan on getting a summer job, but right now I am thinking about winter break. I also get my license in march which is when I can work after school. I would be great at waitressing, hosting, retail (I’m an aspiring fashion designer), as well as other teen jobs. I just need some guidance.
Spam everything, call/show up a week later to check on the application’s status.
I have a list of where, what, and when I applied, only been a week and I applied at 8 different places. Just keep looking. Don’t be afraid to hit every single store you see.
How important is having a job before college?
I am a college bound high school senior, and I have literally no money in a bank account. I fully plan on getting a job immediately during college. I would certainly like to get a job before college for the summer, but it’s pretty tough to find a job. So what i want to know is, is how important is it to have extra spending money before college? I am attending a senior week that costs $200 at the end of June, and I will need books and spending money (I’n thinking 300-400 bucks) for a trip to Green Bay (big Packer fan). I am also having a graduation picnic with family and a ton of friends, and when my brother had one, he made over $1000, which if all goes well I intend to use for books and GB. So does anyone have some helpful advice? I wish I would have just gotten a job a year ago…
It’s way more important to focus on education then having a job in my opinion. If for example one student takes 1-6 ap courses(i think 6 is like the most you can take can’t remember though) and they get good grades in that they have way more of chance of getting into a good college. If someone has a part time job colleges may look at it but grades are a lot more important than a part time job. Also if you are getting money for college a scholarship would give as much money as working maybe like a few years(up to 10,000 dollars). Finally i think your parents and your teachers would be a lot more proud and excited about you getting good grades in classes you can get good grades in(ap and honors are encouraged for anyone of course) than having a part time job. Sports are something else you can do with your time and colleges look at sports A LOT now. Instead of getting that money from a job try this tell your parents “hey mom, dad if i take the hardest classes i can take and get A’s and B’s can i have some money for a trip to green bay?” i’m pretty positive your parents couldn’t say no to that. Focus on grades that’s my advice i was in the same situation and i chose grades and it has worked out great, good luck man
I’m a high school senior, debating over summer or job?
I’m in a STEP-Up program that helped me find a job, and just yesterday I was interviewed for a position in a Girl Scout camp for the summer. My other job is I’m a usher. I will be having two jobs in the summer, so it’s very flexible so it probably wouldn’t be a problem? My only concern is that it’s my last summer before college starts. I just want to make the best of it. I will be starting training on June 7th, the day after I graduate (which is the 6th). If I chose to work at the Girl Scout camp, I will be provided with everything, but I will have to sleep over there and be available to work for 5 days, two days off, a week, all the way until Augest the 14th.. and right after August, I then go straight to college. SO… it’s like I just got out of school, straight to work, then straight to college. BASICALLY, I’m stressing myself to death about this decision. What should I give up, my summer or my position? What do you personally think? (Try not to be harsh, mind me, I’m only fresh to this real world)
You can still have alot of fun working at the Girl Scout camp. What would you do with all of that free time over the summer? Are all of your friends working? If everyone else is busy, then what will you do? I’ve been working summer jobs since before college, the main reason why I started is because all my friends were working too, and I was getting bored just hanging around doing nothing all day but sitting at home and waiting for them to get off work so we could chill.
So I would say that if you really think that you’ll be able to take the summer off and have an amazing time with all of your friends, and you’ll be able to use the time well and not waste a minute, then go for it. But, if all of your friends are going to be working, and you’ll end up just hanging out doing nothing, then go for the job. You’ll earn money which will definitely come in handy at college, and you’ll probably also have alot of fun at Girl Scout camp. I’ve worked at a camp for a summer job for years, and it’s awesome!
Is it bad to lie during a job interview?
I’m a college student home for summer. I’ve been filling out job applications everywhere. I finally got an interview for a clothing store. My mom recommended that I don’t tell them that im going back to college in September. I don’t want to lie but im desperate. Its hard finding a temporary summer job and when you tell employers that, they aren’t interested in hiring you. Am I wrong? Im definitely going back to college in 3 months. Should I tell the manager that im not going back?
Its very bad to lie during an interview. However, its not bad to hide or exaggerate certain things. If there’s no reason to tell him you’ll be quitting in 3 months, then don’t. You should, however, give him a bit of warning before you quit.
If the hiring manager asks you how long you think you’ll be working there for, you can dither and avoid the question. If he asks you if you plan on quitting as soon as school starts again, there’s not much room to maneuver, and you should just admit that you are.
