Part-time jobs besides food service or retail?

I'm a college sophomore, psychology major, looking to have a more productive summer than last year (I volunteered once a week with the public library.) An internship or summer research program is my preference, but if not, I may need to resort to part-time work. I enjoyed my time at the library last year, and I know that my anxiety would probably make food service and retail extremely stressful for me. What other kinds of part-time jobs are out there?

I would recommend looking into working at a summer camp. They employ people just like you every summer who are just needing workers for a few months. You can make a lot of new friends and memories as well as get certified for lifeguarding and ropes course work. You can use your lifeguard certifications outside of the summer too if you need to find extra part-time work.

A good way to find part time jobs that best fit you can be found on Indeed.com

You can search the field that you like most. It has full-time, part-time, and internships on there for you to look up and apply to.

You can always just try searching the thing you'd like to do as jobs to see if there are any openings.

Work with the Career Counseling office at your university to find part-time employment. There might be something at your school that would be suitable. ALSO, volunteer your time (now) with a faculty member who is doing research at your university. You will gain invaluable experience as a research assistant. Additionally, many students are eventually hired by a faculty member - part time during the school year - to work on their projects.


The City of Philadelphia often offers part-time jobs to high school and college students. Go to the website www.phila.gov to search for current vacancies. Go there every two weeks. ALSO, contact your City Council representative and State Government representative - they may also offer part-time work to city residents.


Good luck!!
