Looking for a Job? Job Recommendations for this Summer


 Now that school is over and summer’s finally here, some students are beginning to look into some potential jobs for their own profit. Whether you’re saving up for a car, college, or just some extra cash, you wanna make sure that you choose the appropriate job. That’s why we are providing a list of jobs that could help you get some cash this summer..

1. Lifeguard

Being a lifeguard would be suitable for teens whose strength is swimming, although this job takes a great amount of responsibility and training such as being certified in CPR and First Aid training required by the American Red Cross. Another responsibility would be being in charge of the pool on your shift such as keeping it sanitary. To be a lifeguard, you need to be typically 15 years of age.

2. Tutor

For any students/teens who are strong academically, tutoring can be for you. Many teens who struggle with school take tutoring at one point and depending on your skills, you can earn $10 to 20/hr. If you are compelled to a teaching job in the future this may benefit you for the experience; you can get a taste of what teaching others is like and how to handle certain situations.

3. Dog Walker

If you have a thing for animals and/or work with them well, a dog walker might be the best pick. There is no exact age range for this job, just a reasonable age so that the owner of the animal can trust you with their pets. Most owners don’t have the time to take their dogs for a proper walk when they have to balance work, family, and other essential needs.

4. Fast Food Employee

Even though the fast food industry seems to be a basic choice among teens, it still is a great option for a job. The ages of 14-16 are ideal for joining the food industry but each establishment may vary in age range. For the beginner level in the department you do not need any background work experience, convenient for those who haven’t had a job before. In the state of Colorado, it is expected that you’ll get paid at least $12.32/hr.

5. Movie Theatre

Another job on the simpler side would be at a movie theatre. This job usually hires at $14-15/hr minimum, though you need a school work permit if you’re under the age of 16 to legally work there. Some of the things you can expect while working at a theatre are checking tickets, selling food and/or beverages to those watching the movie, restocking, and cleaning up after the movie.

6. Babysitting

Babysitting is an effective way to earn money, especially during summer time when most parents have to work and schools aren’t there to provide some type of care. During summer with no school gives a perfect chance for students to watch younger children. To be a proper sitter, it’s recommended that you have red cross training in case of an emergency, such as CPR. This job doesn’t exactly have a limit in age, as long as you’re old enough to the point where the parents trust you ‘re all good to go.

7. Lawn Service

Lawn service could include various things from watering grass, pulling weeds, mowing the grass, and several other things. Just like babysitting, there isn’t quite an age minimum for this job, just whatever’s suitable for the people you’ll be working for. The best way to advertise for lawn service is by going throughout your neighborhood or a rec center close by and putting up signs that you’re looking for employment with your contact information on it. The only obvious downside of this job is the heat and trying to persevere through it.
