The Best Summer Jobs For Cash

With summer approaching, it is time to start thinking about how you are going to afford those vacations with your friends. You have a few options:

Option 1: Ask Mom and Dad for money – NEGATIVE! Give them a break!

Option 2: Don’t do anything all summer – BORING!!!

Option 3: Find a fun summer job – Now that’s what I am talking about!

Most people think that working during the summer will make you miss out on spending time with your friends or family but I am here to tell you that you can do both! The list below is compiled of the top summer jobs to get with their average pay next to them.

Waiter/Waitress: Hostesses make between $6.50 and $10 per hour; waiters usually are tip-dependent—a night shift worker can get anywhere from $50 to $120. Day shifts are usually slower. Busboys usually make less than the waiters, unless they are working the bar, where you sometimes get a cut of the bartender’s tips.

Lifeguard: Plus side to this is you will get to know CPR and First Aid! Also who would not want to make $6.50-$9 an hour spending time at the pool getting a tan?

Day Camp Counselor: In March, check with local private schools, community organizations, and religious groups about when their camp starts. If you call early enough the job is pretty easy to get. The pay is anywhere from $600 to $3,000 for 8 weeks of work.

Remember that they pay could vary depending on your negotiation skills but don’t blow the opportunity at getting the job by asking for money. If you really want to know the best way to find the job you want this summer, get going and check out some jobs! Try to not get discouraged if you get a few rejections, it’s the name of the game.
