Major: International Economic Relations
I am fond of chocolates, flowers, friends, loud music, watching movies, taking pictures and traveling!!!
Colleges and Schools in the USA operate like any other business. That’s why it is always possible to find student summer jobs over many colleges and universities. There is a library with student jobs, administration offices, food service with student jobs and hundreds of other potential student summer jobs.
Summer jobs usually pay not very much but often provide flexible hours and adjust to the testing and studying needs of the student. Often it is possible to do the majority of your studying at your student summer jobs.
You can find a job for summer as an internship. Such student summer jobs very often do not pay at all but allow students to gain experience according to your field and major and affects your resume in a really good way. It is more possible to be hired by the company after graduation if you have already worked there.
If case you want to experience something unusual during your summer, why not take advantage of the long holiday and get work experience abroad? It could be you want to teach a favourite activity of yours (skiing or diving perhaps) or that you are looking for something a little less stressful – say fruit-picking or au-pairing in the Mediterranean. With the help of job abroad you can show your independence and thirst for adventure to your future employers and of course, you’ll be able to add some sort of language skills to your CV too (assuming you make an effort to communicate with the native people whilst abroad). Should your language skills already be highly developed, consider work in a hotel – reception jobs are often open during the summer months as the rise in tourism levels means there is often a high demand for staff – this is a great job of much responsibility so be sure to check it out!
Keep in mind that it’s not absolutely essential that you go abroad to get international experience – how about teaching English in the UK? Being a native speaker, you’re already qualified so all that’s left to do is find a school! If you already have a background in a second language, ideal.
No matter how you choose to spend your time in summer, make sure it is benefiting you! Whether it is earning money or getting experience, the summer holidays and the time you have outside of class during the academic year is a lot and so be sure not to waste it!
