5 Common Summer Jobs for Teenagers

Summer is quickly approaching, bringing with it the opportunity to pick up a job or two to gain extra money during the break. For teenagers and college students, finding a job for a few short months can be hard, so start preparing now to get a job lined up.
 



Mowing lawns is not a glamorous job, but can pay well for a summer job. In order to get more jobs, you will need your own lawnmower and way of transporting it unless you intend to stick to your neighborhood. If you have other tools that you can use such as a weed eater, edger, blower, and other hand tools then you can offer a full package. Start off offering to mow someone’s lawn for less than they are paying now and then word will spread. Once the demand for your service grows, you can raise prices.
   
Spending the summer working at a grocery store may not seem like a typical summer job, but it’s a stable job that can provide continual employment opportunities if you wish. You will be forced to interact with others, teaching you people skills while enjoying air conditioning.
 
Being a camp counselor is what most people imagine when thinking of a summer job. These are great jobs during summer break in college. The pay usually isn’t great, but housing and food are covered and you can develop great leadership skills.
 
If sports are your thing, then working as a referee or umpire will be a fun way to pass the summer. You have to really know the rules of the sport, be confident, and have a thick skin in order to do the job.
 
Lifeguards are in high-demand during the summer. You only need basic swimming abilities and to take a class. Usually the job is low-stress, but there is always the chance that you will have to jump in the water to save someone.
