As I mentioned above that,I'm interesting about Which kind of part-time jobs have you did in your summer vacation,If there are some differences between different countries.You can answer it even if you are not a student now!I want to share with everyone here! When I was a high school student ,I have a big learning tasks so I couldn't do part-time jobs in my summer vacation,MY mum prefer me to study at home rather than going out and doing jobs.BUT when I'm in college ,I do it every summer,last summer,I was attending the "China JOY "IN Shanghai as a cosplay performer.And I HAVE been a promotion specialist in the summer 2 year ago! How about you?happy mylotting!

Hi, windflower. It seems you've started a bunch of discussion. Anyway, I like them. When I was a college student, I often took part-time jobs in vacations, including teaching and translating. I taught at my middle school for the whole summer vacation, and of course earned a lot. That was the first time that I earned that amount of money by myself. Greatly encouraged, I did part-time jobs every vacation after that. The second time was working as a translator for my brother's tourist company. My job was to show foreign tourists around and explain to them various things. Different from the first time, this time was rewardless. Anyhow, I liked it much. Now, since I've already worked, I don't think I'll take a part-time job any more. After about 4 months' tiring work, what I want to do most in the coming vacation is to relax and forget about work. It's almost the time for the end of this semester. You must have worked out a splendid plan for your vacation. Wish you a happy summer vacation.

Hi,Yue. Thanks to your response!I love your experience about part-time jobs,I was trying to find a job like the translating,but,you know,Searching a job what you like and getting pay from it ,is not so easy.Many imformation on the internet are totally a lie.I never thought about to be a teacher,because I think they are always need to repeat the lessons,but I like the nwe things. Neverthless,The best thing to be a teacher is having the summer and winter vacations!There is no other career as a teacher,have such a long holiday,I think. Happy in your summer vacation,my friend!

During my last summer vacation i worked as a telemarketer at a communication company called celcom and it was a great experience to be working there.When i started i was kinda been bullied by those workers there and gradually they stopped doing so when i got promoted due to my hardwork and always being serious when working.For a student like me it was something good since i get a raise in pay about 15%.The manager asked me to go back there to work every summer vacation and i think i am going back there again this summer break as it very nice and i have foundations in doing that job

When I was a nursing student I worked in couple of different nursing homes during the holidays. It was the perfect job for me, it was not only a way to earn some money, I also got the chance to learn something and get some more experience. It was very easy for me to find work during the summer months, and I usually received invitations and offers from a couple of places. It is not easy for the nursing homes to find staff during the summer, and many places hire people without any experience.

I have worked with a lawyer for my first year of university's holidays and I quite enjoyed that a lot, I think we are able to learn much more when we use our holidays intelligently and wisely so working in holidays is something fruitful for me and when we are paid also I am very happy. Now I work in a different company full time and I also study so I find that the experience I got was indeed very good to me atleast I am not new to the job market.

Never had one to be honest, but I want to find one this coming summer vacation. Hopefully it's something quite flexible.

Yes I am a college student and during the weekends, I work at a petrol bunk here to earn my pocket money so that i could afford them for my daily expenses. I sometimes work in the super markets. You may not be getting a very good salary but you are sure to get a decent salary.

I am no longer student but as far as i remember i did a job for summer vacation when i am still in school. I worked as a secretary this is my very first work. My day to day works were filing, accepting calls, doing some paper works, data encoding. I just get less earnings there but its a memorable one for me because as i said its my first job. I just stayed there for a month then start my studies again.
