Finding a job in Washington, DC?
I am moving to DC for the summer. How hard is it to find a part-time job? I am a college student and not looking for anything too serious. I have restaurant and retail experience. Any tips?
There are a lot of different jobs in DC. A lot of jobs are in retail, and it depends on if you want to work inside or outside. You could easily get a job as a vendor, selling snacks, drinks, and souvenirs to tourists. Or there are jobs at places like Pentagon City Mall and Crystal City and Union Station. There are plenty of jobs up there in retail.
Summer camp job/volunteer for a 17 year old?
I’ve been look for summer camps that I could volunteer at or get a job for as a 17 year old. Most CIT positions stop after 16 and pick back up to be a counselor at 18 with college experience.
I live in North Georgia and I can’t find a good camp around that has positions available for my age.
Call your state Girl Scouts office — there are Girl Scouts day camps going on all over the USA, and they do accept 17 year olds as volunteers.

Summer Ideas?!? please help?
Hi, I am a recent high school graduate and will be attending Emory University this fall. I know this is really late, but I need some help finding summer jobs/internships/opportunities. I am already volunteering at a hospital but that is only 4 hours a week. Does anyone know of any opportunities in the Atlanta area that are still open? All the stuff i have found so far is aimed towards college graduates…. please help
What do you really love to do? Find a way to do that thing. If you’re at a hospital, volunteer at a rehab center or retirement home. Intern at a child care center, read to kids at the library. I don’t know what you’re really into, or I could make more suggestions. Meditate and ask for help with your search. The answer usually will come to you.
Is it bad to put your information into a job search engine?
I have heard that sometimes if you put your information into a job search engine that it can backfire on you because if your information stays in the system too long, they won’t consider you if you are searching for jobs later on (right now I am in college and am looking for a summer job, but later I might use the same search engine to find a job after college, and my inactive profile could backfire on me)
I have tried applying to many places in the area, and none of them have called back.
but you did not answer the question, BEST ANSWER, 10 POINTS!!
It doesn’t matter because the general job search engines are absolutely terrible at finding jobs. Probably less than 10% of successful job searches result from Monster or Careerbuilder.
Much better is to apply directly on the company’s job site. Better still is to be networking on LinkedIn, watching the people in your field and asking questions/learning.
Blanket blasting to “many places in the area” doesn’t work any more, as you discovered. Modern job searching involves targeting your approach–learning about the companies you want to work for and how you can help them. This builds your resume for the serious job after college.
Where can I find a job?
I am live in Lancaster, Pa and I am 18 years old. I really need a summer job to earn money for college. Where can I find one? PLEASE HELP.
Well if you weren’t lazy, then you could find a job anywhere.
Now apply your filters of scrutiny, and you can’t find a job!
You could find a job at a grocery store, pharmacy, retail store, etc.
Being 18, without education, and in PA will not get you a good job that pays well.
