If you’re looking to make some extra cash this summer, you’re in luck. There are tons of options for summer jobs, from the usual babysitting to internships in various industries like in a Philippine call center. Here are some high paying jobs that will surely help you earn this summer.
Tutoring and Review Classes
Now that kids are all out of school, summer tutors are in high demand. If you have teaching experience or if you’re skilled in a certain subject like Math or Science, you could earn a lot of money tutoring kids. Tutoring is one of the higher paying summer jobs since tutors are often paid by the hour.
Additionally, review classes for college entrance tests have gained popularity in recent years. So if you’re a college student or teacher looking to boost your income, you could easily do so by teaching in an existing review class or conducting your own.
Kids Swimming Instructor
Summer is the peak season for all swim schools, making kids swim instructors in high demand as well. If you’re skilled in swimming and if you love teaching and interacting with young children, this could be the summer job for you.
Another job that’s in high demand nowadays is freelance writers, self-employed writers who can write for either one publication or for several magazines depending on their preference. Some benefits include being able to work from home or from coffee shops, choosing their own work hours, and picking which writing jobs to take. However, one downside is that the market for writers is quite competitive. Some websites where you can find freelance job opportunities include LinkedIn and Indeed.
If you’re a high school or college student looking to gain work experience along with the extra cash, you can consider applying for paid internships in various companies and organizations. Internships are a great way to learn about your dream profession. For instance, you could be an intern in a Philippine call center, a marketing or advertising firm, a local business, and many more depending on your desired career. Another advantage of summer internships is that they help you establish contacts in the workplace that you can use in the future.
Start an online business
Rather than undergo the process of applying for a summer job, many opt to start their own business instead. Whether it’s selling your clothes online or selling homemade baked goods to family and friends, starting your own small business is an easy way to earn some money on the side, although the pay is not always the highest. Nonetheless, there is a wide range of online platforms like Carousell, Shoppee, and Etsy where you can easily sell anything from second-hand clothes and shoes to handmade jewelry and crafts.
Whether you’re a student or working adult, there’s a wide range of job openings and internships for people of various ages and skill level. In addition to earning money, summer jobs are also great opportunities for gaining work experience and for networking.
