Kick Ass Summer Jobs: Now's the Time to Apply

By StudentJob on 08-02-2019

Summer is months away, but the worm and the sooner you start looking for summer jobs, the more likely it will not be a total bore. Plus, you will not be stressing at the last minute trying to find one. Luckily for you, I've found five awesome jobs that will ensure you have fun.

Festival Work

During Summer there are so many festivals that you can do. But that's where you're wrong! Get a job at your favorite festivals and you'll get to enjoy yourself, but you're also being paid. You get the best of both worlds (Hannah Montana pun intended). A little disclaimer; you will not get to enjoy the festival in its entirety, you can not just stop flipping burgers and head to Beyonce, but it's still better than not going at all.

Working as a lifeguard can be a kick-ass summer job, hold up before you quickly close this window let me explain myself. Lifeguards get hella money, like £ 9 an hour at some jobs. Think of all the things you can buy with a salary like that. You do not have to work in the UK either! Plenty of resorts and holiday destinations abroad look for lifeguards for the summer period. So, hop on a flight and start working in Mallorca. You also have a once in a lifetime chance to do the Baywatch run, what more could you want?

Thanks to our pal global warming, the weather we've gotten the past few years during Summer has not been bad. But, if you want to be basking in the sun from June to August, then consider working at a Summer Camp. They are located across the globe, from France to the USA, so you have plenty of options. The great thing about a Summer Camp job is that you're working but not really working. You see, you're in charge of bringing the fun, so you'll be doing different activities throughout the campfire. Is there a better job out there? I do not think so.

Work Abroad

If working at a summer camp is not your thing do not worry. You still have heaps or opportunities to work abroad. You can be an au pair, work at a resort, or work at a theme park - the possibilities are endless! The great thing about these jobs is that you're gaining work experience, you're also seeing a new culture. Plus, it goes without saying; working abroad looks great on your CV. It shows employers that you have to step out of your comfort zone and try new things.


Do you not have a clue what you want to do in the future? Then do an internship (or several) this summer. It is a great job to do. It makes the process of choosing a hundred times easier. Also, it's a great way to broaden your horizons, make connections and gain some professional experience. You may think it's not a 'kick-ass summer job' because you're doing actual work, but that's not the case. The people you meet will make your internship worthwhile and every day will be different.
