While most students are spending their vacation doing leisurely activities, there are some who are taking advantage of the school break to earn money. These kids do so because they want to prepare for the coming school year or to help out with the family expenses. Though the first month of summer is about to end, there is still time for students like them who are on a school break to get a summer job and earn.
Here are some summer jobs that school kids may take;
Tutoring younger kids is the right choice of an appointment for a student. It is not physically taxing and, at the same time, the student him- or herself will have a chance to review previous lessons while earning. Parents will also appreciate that their children get to learn even during summer breaks.
Two to three hours of tutoring one kid may earn you P200 and above, depending on how thorough each session will be.
Restaurant or Fastfood Crew
This particular job is the most common option for those who want to make the most of their free time. Among the tasks of a restaurant or fast-food service crew is taking note of and preparation of customers’ orders; maintaining the cleanliness and orderliness of the place; cashiering, managing inventories, and others.
The good thing about it is that most fast foods accept students as part-time workers so that this gig may extend beyond summer vacation.
A service crew is paid with an amount equivalent to the minimum daily rate prescribed in the region where they are situated.
Students who are both creative and well-versed in using digital tools to create graphics, logos, and others may use these skills to earn money while they are on vacation. As a graphic artist or designer, he or she has the option to work in an office or at home.
