Your Questions About Finding A Summer Job College
Help finding a 2nd part time job?
I need to work 2 jobs this summer. I have a M-F day job and I am taking a college class (PE) M-Th evenings. My availability for my 2nd job would be Fri. nights and Sat-Sun open. Do you know of any jobs or employers that will hire someone to work only 3 days a week? Please help.
I would try various restaurants and apply as a waitress or even cookstaff. I work at a country club and make (before cash tips) between 8-9 dollars an hour because of the tip pool. Some weeks it’s more like 10-11 dollars/hour.
Also try movie theaters-those are their busy nights, and I hear they pay somewhat decent.
what would be a good summer job for a teenager?..?
im trying to find one thats:
somewhat easy going(not TOOO busy or stressful)
(maybe like small shops or outlets??
maybe even some sort of preschool thing-i like to work with kids and im cpr certified )
just something to get a little money for the summer and college
but doesnt consume my ENTIRE summer(a moderate,constant job)
p.s…trying to stear clear of working in foods :S
i know thats a lot of demands but..any suggestions???
Maybe you should try working at a recreation center… Like working with Lil kids n stuff. I am actually applying for that at a clay madsen recreation center.
Disabled college student searching for job advice?
Like many people, I need a job (specifically for the summer).
I’m a rising junior in college, double-majoring in both French and English. I live in southeast Virginia, and I’m willing to do any job that I can physically do. I’m in a wheelchair some of the time but I can walk; basically I get tired easily when walking.
I’m fluent in French, have been published in a local poetry book, can type 70-80 words per minute, and I have outstanding customer service skills. I’ve got some volunteer experience, and have excelled in the academic world. I’ve been on the Deans List since starting college, and have won first place in a statewide French fluency competition, among other things. The problem is I don’t have the necessary degrees or minimum experience to be considered for the jobs I am most suited for.
As for my disability, I’ve pretty much ruled out everything related to food or frequent standing because they will exhaust me.
What suggestions can you give me on how to find a job?
Also, what are the chances of finding a job I could physically do through websites like www.workforstudents.com? I’ve heard a lot of, if not all of the jobs given out by websites like that are things I just can’t do, such as pool cleaning or roofing.
Thank you for your help.
Nathan, just list those wonderful talents you have and boast about them! Sell youself. In California, on every application they ask if you are disabled and this actually will give you the edge!
How to find a job between college years?
It’s the summer now and I have just completed my first year of college. My program is only two years so I am halfway done. I am taking Business and Insurance programs and majoring in Insurance. I have already worked for the last 2 and a half years at Mcdonald’s starting as crew and working up to a crew trainer position. I know that doesn’t sound all that impressive, but I am hoping to get something related to what I am going to school for.
I am unsure what jobs I can even apply for, I have just been applying to anything. I am just afraid I will have to be a dishwasher or something :S And not get paid much. I realize I don’t have much to offer but how do I convince an employer to take a chance on me? I am so scared to job hunt again because when I first got my last job 3 years ago I had a heck of a time getting a chance. I lived in a small town and there are no opportunities there. I have since moved to a city and there are more jobs, but am having a hard time standing out.
Any help would be great! Also tips on what to do and what not to do would be great as well!
You’re taking the program because you have a job in sight.
So find a company that is going to need your skills when you’re finished. Call and say you’re in school and you’d like to talk to someone for 20 minutes for a real world perspective. (Important: don’t mention jobs.) You might be surprised at how willing they’ll be to share.
This will give you a chance to take a look and learn. It will give them an opportunity to look at you. Maybe you’ll develop a contact you can continue to network with as you wrap up your schooling.
Be careful about “applying to anything”. The modern job hunt is focused. There are 4 people applying for every McDonald’s job so to get anywhere, you have to specialize.
I’m mad because I can’t find a job this summer? Pissed?
I stopped by and literally applied at every store I am qualified to. I’m 18, and I NEED extra money and experience before I head off to college. Plus I’m sick of riding on my parents bank account. I’ve been applying since early May, but all their lineups are full. I call managers to look up on my application and they’re like ”I’ll do it later” or seem uninterested. What do I have to do to get a job?
Try registering with a couple of agencies. You may have started too late to find a job. Most teens have been out since Xmas looking for a job. Jobs are very scarce as you see. Don’t call anyone, just show up and put in an application. You might be lucky enough to get an on the spot interview. Talk to family and friends to let them know you are job hunting. Landscapers are always looking for help at this time of year. Just keep trying…..
