3 Possible Summer Jobs

By Chiyierrja Grant on May 16, 2017

Relaxing in the sun and having time far away from class assignments is nice but there’s a few ways to make some extra cash this summer in your free time.

If you love dogs and are okay with going on long walks this may be the gig for you. Some people are so busy that they don’t have time to take their furry friends for a walk. This is a great way to make some side cash while interacting with dogs and enjoying the fresh air. You can set your own hours and pay.


If you get along well with children then this could be a great way to have fun with them while earning plenty. While kids are out of school for the summer their parents are still working. This is another job where you can set your own pay and hours. One of the most popular ways to check gigs is through care.com, a website where you can find people looking for nannies nearby. This site also has categories for house sitting, dog sitting or housekeeping.


No matter if it’s a way with words, painting canvases, designing web pages, or creating content for a blog, you can take your skill and offer it as a service. Freelancer.com is one of the most popular websites for connecting with others who want to hire a freelancer.

There are plenty others but these are few out of the ordinary that many forget about. With these jobs you are more in control of hours and pay. They don’t require too much of a commitment for when August rolls back around. If you just want a job to work for 2-3 months max with no strings attached this may be helpful in making a bit of income while on summer break.

I'm a Sophomore at Missouri State University majoring in Journalism with a minor in screenwriting. The love of my life is writing. I love storytelling and hope to go on as a screenwriter. It would be a dream to have a career where my imagination can run wild and seeing it come to life.
