Mitch’s Answer

I would consider schedule, interest, and if you have any goals for how much you need to make. I can speak to summer jobs that I've held, but there are plenty more options to consider.

If you have interest in education, social work, or some other field that revolves around working with children, camp is an obvious choice. Do keep in mind that camp usually require early start times and pay isn't great, but it generally is on the books. However, it does look good on resumes and it's a ton of fun to go on field trips as a counselor.

If you are certified and a strong swimmer, lifeguarding is a perfect seasonal job. It also happens to be one of the better-paying ones.

Depending on the restaurant, places may look for seasonal help during the summer as well. Busing, waiting, and washing dishes usually don't require much experience. Depending on the shift the tips can be good (dinner is usually better than breakfast or lunch), but base pay can also be off the books. While these jobs can be exhausting, lunch and dinner shifts are good options for night owls.

There are plenty of other options, but if you're a student applying in May or June, the manager will almost certainly ask if you're only looking for seasonal work. Some places, like restaurants, don't want to train someone who will only be there for a few months. Be honest and up-front and I'm sure you'll find a good fit.
