Summer Job Options for High School Students
So you are a high school student looking for a summer job? You are much too young for a real job but there are varieties of summer job options you could look into. With assistance from those much older than you, it would be easy to land a summer job that you would enjoy and at the same time help line your pockets with a few dollars.
Pet Sitting Service
Maybe you like pets and all the processes involved in maintaining their health and behavior. Then, possibly the best summer job option for you is to have a pet sitting service. You could look into pet owners who are on vacation and ask if you can do service with their pets. Be sure though to select only those animals that are within the range of your skills. Be specific with what you are looking for a summer job. Say, you can attend best to certain breeds of dogs and cats.
Maintenance and Cleaning Service
There’s always something other people would be glad to be done. You may not exactly like doing house chores but getting paid for the service appeals differently. In fact, you will even offer yourself for the chores instead of running away from them. For a high school student like you, spending summer over cleaning other people’s houses is one of the best ways to earn. Many people, like you sometimes, may not want to lift their fingers and clean their house so turn this into a very lucrative opportunity. Get paid while learning to love the very thing you hate doing.
You may try offering complete house cleaning service or offer only to work on some areas, say attic, garage or garden services.
PC/Web Assistance Services
Hey computer whiz, here are some works for you! Some adults are not as proficient with PC’s and computer lingo as some of you are. Thus, you can make money by tutoring people in the PC world. And it would be a great addition if you happen to be skillful in website development. Many people are now opting for home-based business, which more often than not, require websites. Instead of recommending website developers to them, why not do the work yourself and help them build their own websites.
Summer seems to harbor exterior and interior renovations. If you have good experience and talent with house painting, it would be best to offer your services on house painting.
Delivery, Errand and Messenger Services
There are people too busy to do some of the simplest everyday things. You could take advantage of this and make a business out of other people’s unavailability. Search for establishments that need frequent delivery and errand services within your place.
Catering and Cooking Services
Your mother may have friends who need a personal cook. If you think you can cater their needs through your skills and talents for cooking, you can set up a personal cooking service. You can make arrangements like in-house cooking or food delivery.
Summer jobs for high school students could be simplistic in nature but the attitude and the assistance being given to you by these opportunities are very useful in the very near future. So, even with the frustrations at hand and your unfulfilled expectations, still learn to love and enjoy your work.
