How much money can I make with a full-time summer job?
I’m seventeen years old and need to start saving up for college… I also want to buy a lap top, and the one I have my eye on is almost six hundred dollars. I want to make as much as possible this summer by getting a full-time job. But I could probably only find a job at a local restaurant or store. (Please give me specific ideas if you have any, by the way! Maybe WalMart, Target, Arctic Circle, Wendy’s…?) Anyway, if I were to work at a cheap place like that full-time (which would be 8 hours, right about four days a week, right?) how much could I get over the full summer vacation (just under three months)? Feel free to share any experiences you’ve had as well
You can figure this yourself. Multiply the minimum wage amount x the amount of hours you plan to work x the number of days you work.
$7.25 x 8 hour day = $58 a day. Over 3 months if you can work 5 days a week you will earn about $3,480 over a summer. You have to pay Social Security and Medicare taxes of about $200 from that so you will make about $3,280. You won’t owe Federal taxes but may owe a small amount of state taxes depending upon where you live.

If my major in college is print journalism and I can’t find a writing job/internship then what other field can
my major is print journalism and I have to do an internship over the summer, but I am finding it almost impossible to get anything involving writing. The dean gave us an online list of newspaper places where we could possibly get internships, but there are only like 2 places I would have access to, and neither of them seemed to be able to help me when I called them. In addition, I do not want to work with a newspaper anyway. So if I could not get an internship at a newspaper place, are there any other places, i.e. government places where I can easily get an internship, whether or not it involves writing? Even if it just involves office tasks or something else, I am sure that would suffice. Does anyone know of any places? I really need to find a place because I need an internship and I am running out of time.
Nonprofit organizations are usually delighted to get interns – and you would have a broader experience there than at a newspaper.
Some nonprofits that I can think of are YMCA, a large church, the Red Cross, museums, and facilities that help the unfortunate. (My megachurch maintains a Samaritan Center where they sell people’s donated clothing and household items and help people who have been burned out or are out of work, etc.) All such organizations do a lot of public relations work.
Or, perhaps you can intern in the mayor’s office! Depending on the size of city you live in or near, there should be a lot of potential places. You will need to clear whatever you choose, however, with your dean.
I might be getting this job at the dealership?
The manager had three positions opened ~ auto detailing (commission), courtesy driver (I’m assuming minimum wage?) (Nebraska), washer/dryer in servicing
Which one seems more reasonable. I’m a college student finding a full time job during summer.
Driver would the most fun with not as much manuel labor.
I am a college student, this summer I want to move to somewhere else in the USA, maybe another country to get?
a summer job…I have heard of things where they give you housing and food but only pay you little. what is this called and how can i find out about them. I want to go somewhere I can have fun with other kids my age (im 19)
You are probably referring to an Internship. There are many opportunities out there… You should talk to your advisors about internship opportunities that relate to your major. These will look great on your resume, and you’ll definitely be above everyone else if you have BOTH a degree and real experience in the field.
Question about finding a job?
So I really want to get a job this summer to start saving money to pay back college loans and a car I’m getting soon. I’ll be done with my first year of college in a few weeks and will head home to San Diego promptly. I have no experience working, and I know the economy isn’t in it’s greatest shape. Do I have a shot at getting a job? I really want experience but I have no idea where to begin! Help please?
Drive the Snack Cart at the local golf course. If that job isn’t open, caddy. It is one of the best jobs you can do.
Apply at office buildings and industrial areas where most people don’t apply. Avoid the retail stores and grocery stores which are getting 100 applications per week.
You may have to invent a job for yourself. Learn how to fix an HDTV. The current wait for a repairman is 3 weeks.
