Working in the restaurant industry is definitely no lavish lifestyle.
"They never said 'no shorts' at orientation."
"I want to speak to a manager."
There are so many great and fun summer jobs that won't make you wish you were back in a lecture hall. Because that is an extreme thought, guys.
It’s August. The days of sleeping in and sleeping out are waning as move-in day is approaching far too fast. Savor the summer. Savor the in-between season between class schedules.
Until fame and fortunate came knocking at their door, celebrities had to pick up odd jobs too, just like everyone else. Last week we shared with you our dream summer jobs, now take a look at these...well...less enticing positions once held by our fave celebs.
We know that college students are always looking for ways to save money. Especially at this time of year, when the semester is coming to a close and your bank account is sinking closer and closer to $0!
Four months is a lot of time to spend doing nothing, which is why more often than not college students find themselves with a lap full of summer resolutions. Now we're in the last month of summer and some of us, no doubt, have given up on forgotten about those promises we made to ourselves, but it’s not too late to get back on the horse. Here’s a few ways you can still achieve those summer resolutions.
No one would ever walk up to a friend on financial aid and accuse her parents of being lazy, good-for-nothing, bad parents for not making enough money to send her to college. Yet people feel completely comfortable going up to a friend with an unpaid internship and accusing her of being a spoiled brat because she’s fortunate enough to be able to afford spending a summer making no money.
So, school is coming to an end soon. That's good, right? Yes...and no. On the one hand, you're done with paper-writing for a few months. Hollaaaa! On the other hand, you still need to figure out what you're going to do this summer. Job? Internship? Job and internship? Yeah, that sounds fun. Not. The good news is, those aren't your only options.
Ask any student what the best part about school is, and you’ll most likely get the same answer – summer vacation. The carefree days of summer make all of the homework and pop quizzes bearable and give students something to look forward to during April showers.
Summer is in full swing and while we're all busy toiling away at our internships and jobs, it's hard not to dream about those relaxing and fun summers of our past. Not only did we have zero responsibility back then, but we had all of our friends to chase through sprinklers and get Dairy Queen with. Not anymore.
Would You Rather have an unpaid summer internship with a boss like Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada or a summer job making bank as a nanny for the brattiest group of triplets you can imagine?
