There are several summer jobs available for people who need to find a different summer job; Seasonal jobs or in the tourism industry are often some of the most common.

Summer jobs only available seasonally are quite popular and often easy to get. This includes jobs at a community pool, as a lifeguard, for example, or running an ice cream stand. Restaurants often hire waiters, table cleaners or kitchen servants such as dishwashers or cooks in the summer when they are busiest. Bartending is another potential summer job, though some restaurants require their bartenders to attend a bartending school. Road maintenance and repair crews often hire extra help in the summer as well.

Any tourist attraction such as lakes, beaches or amusement parks, just to name a few, is an easy way to find summer jobs. Local hotels, motels or resorts may also offer summer jobs, which can include everything from working the front desk to doing housework or maintaining security around the property.

Of course, some people take summer jobs not just to earn some extra cash, but also to further a career or college degree. There are many internships available during the summer, which can be especially convenient as it does not detract from the course during the year. Internships can be found by searching online or contacting the university; most universities offer assistance in placing students in internship or study abroad programs. While internships are typically unpaid summer jobs, they can sometimes offer a small stipend, or free room and board, for example, as well as valuable life experience and course credit.
