Most of us can remember our first summer jobs. The lazy strolls into work, the daydreams about being at the pool or on the beach while we reluctantly served customers or pushed brooms… the experiences we had during our first summer jobs were probably ones that we’ll be able to recall forever. Thinking back on our first summer jobs may even bring up tales of sorrow, anxiety and misery, simply because we hated our first seasonal gig. Others may look back on their summertime work from their teenage years and wish that it had never ended.
Painting Jobs – Summer Jobs for Teens and Students
Almost all of us have been asked to help out with painting at one point or another; painting a room, a house, or even a wooden fence is a right of passage for most teenagers (See “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer”). Just like the protagonist of one of Mark Twain’s most popular novels, many teens baulk at the idea of having to paint all day. But if the sound of covering walls both inside and out with lustrous enamels, stains and lacquers sounds like fun to you, then why not start your own business as a residential painter.
Pet Walker, Pet Trainer – Jobs for Teens and Students
Most animal lovers would agree that getting paid to spend time with their four-legged friends would be a pretty cool way to make a living. Did you know that there are people that actually make a lot of money by walking their clients’ pets for an hour or two every day? There’s definitely more to becoming a paid pet walker than taking out your own dog and asking your parents for money, but if you work hard and take your business seriously, then you could end up turning your love for the canine variety into a profitable career.
