Summer jobs can be a ton of fun and many can feel like a vacation of their own. Here are a few summer jobs that are sure to get you out of that kiddy pool and put some extra cash in your pocket.
Theme park --What could be more fun than working at a theme park? Everyday you'll be surrounded by fun characters, delicious food and awesome rides. The best part is, not only do you get to enjoy the benefits of working at such a cool place, but so do your friends and family. When you become a team member at an amusement park you get free admission and discounts that you can share with your closest pals.
Ice cream truck -- Working from an ice cream truck is the ultimate way to stay cool and check out the town. Seriously, what's cooler than cruising around to your own theme song in a ride that is filled with delicious frosty treats? I guarantee you that everyone will always be happy to see you too. It’s almost impossible to be grumpy around ice cream!
Local event venue -- As event staff at a local venue you'll be able to attend all of the hottest concerts and sporting events in your area. Who knows, maybe you'll even meet a rock star or famous athlete.
