Whats a good summer job?
This is an amazing question, personally I think you need to decide the purpose of your summer job. If you want it to open opportunities for a full time job, or a job where you will have an amazing time and could be for a one time and earn some money.
What I personally did with my summers was work in a summer camp. It was an amazing experience, I met incredible people and earned some money. It also helped me with my English, as I from Mexico.
Also, now that I work at one of the big four accounting firms in Boston, I know that there are also summer internships, that help college students get an overview of what the real work life would be, and potentially get them a full time offer.
Hope this helps you decide what type of summer work you would like venture in!
I think first you need to decide what is the main purpose of the summer job.
If it is just for earning money, you can choose whatever is convenient to you based on the salary or the proximity ...
But if you are thinking of benefiting of a summer job to earn skills or knowledge that will help you in your future career, you will need to do more researches and take into consideration the benefits or the skills gained from the job as a priority.
In any case, every job can help shape the personality and support the personal development regardless of its field or its nature.
Communication skills for example can be earned in any type of jobs, you just need to know how to benefit the most from any job you choose.
For me personally, any job is a good summer job. Getting the experience is the most important thing. It builds your resume and adds to your value. So if you can get any job and learn everything you can about the job, it'll help you out in the long run. I know I had a few summer jobs and one of them actually helped me land a great well paying just. Building connections and building relationships is very important.
