I'm about to finish my first year of college and I need to start thinking about what I'm going to do over the summer. I worked at a fast food restaurant during my last year of high school and it was miserable and I never want to work at a restaurant again. What summer jobs would you guys recommend?

Ref paintball!

Or a grocery store. Easy money.

I'm a Computer Science student with a little over a year of work experience. I'm not really built so anything that requires a lot of physical labor really isn't for me.

Work IT for your college.

look for companies that high college students. during my summer of being college student i worked at a place that only hired college students during the summer because they knew that college students needed money. look for insurance companies. it's where i worked, two summers i worked in the mail room i delivered mail and the other summer i was maintenance, i did stuff like walk around the building picking up garbage.

Delivering pizzas isn't a bad idea. I wouldn't mind making money by driving around listening to podcasts all day. I just wish gas wasn't so expensive.

last year i worked at a autobody shop, it was loads of fun so do that if you can.

this is infinitely helpful to me too, only I have never worked at all :/ and thinking about asking for applications triggers my deep social issues, so that's gonna be fun

Right. There are a lot that you can find. You can do online jobs that can pretty much cover up for the expenses you were expending and could help you out in situations you were in. Check out sites as https://personalmoneynetwork.com/, it might help you. Just be patient as looking for them won't pop out in front of you. ;)

Yes I'm sure he's been looking for a summer job for over a year xD

Get a motherfucking internship and don't even think twice about it. CS internships pay ridiculously well, I made $20/hr at my first internship and I spent like 5 hours on the entire application process including the interview.

Also don't look at usajobs.gov unless you need to, government jobs don't pay very well.

Edit: Oh. I guess that's not an issue for him anymore, the thread's almost 2 years old and this guy @breej with 1 post bumped it to pimp some site without actually contributing anything. Still, PSA. If you're a CS major, look for internships constantly.

Get an internship, probably won't be easy if you're only in your first year (like myself). It depends on your major I suppose.

I work at a movie theater. Much better than working in a kitchen, in my opinion. Also, free movies.

Be a waiter! That is what I did last summer and made a pretty decent pay.

Edited: Lawlz, this thread is so old. X3 Didn't even bother to check the date.

Try to get a job with local public transit, or, any government agency. I got my foot in the door my second year of undergrad and got a job making 47k doing fucking data entry right out of university.

If you can swim decently well, being a lifeguard pays well. I've done that for many summers in the past. It does get pretty boring after awhile, but it payed well for me. Training takes up to a week at most.

Prostitution is an option.

@wolverine: Find a good staffing agency and you can probably swing a warehouse job or something.

From what I have heard and read some don't give gas money and a lot don't even come close to giving you how much money gas actually cost you.

edit: just realized this is almost 2 years old.
