You're home from college, you're constantly looking for something to do, and you need more money. A summer job could be your answer. Working over the summer is a great way to fill up some of your time, plus you'll have some money in your account! We could all use some more money during college.

We could all use some more money during the summer. Whether you're saving up to pay bills or you want some extra spending money, a summer job will help you earn some cash.

2. New friends

At a summer job, you'll have coworkers, and many of them are probably around your age. You'll spend a bit of your time working with them, so why not make some new friends at your job? It'll also make working more fun! (or at least bearable...)

3. Customer Service and Work Experience

You'll gain some new skills and learn new things, as well as getting customer service and work experience. This is a great thing to have when applying for other jobs. Even if you're not planning on going into a career related to your summer job, customer service is an important skill to have. It shows you know how to work with others, problem-solve, and manage your time.

4. Employee discounts

Many summer jobs come with an employee discount, and what's not to love about getting free or discounted stuff? You could get discounts on clothes or food for the summer!

5. It fills up your extra time

If you're constantly bored and looking for something to do, a summer job can help fill some of your free time. You'll still have time for your social life and other things, but instead of sitting around all the time, you can be productive by working and making money!

There are plenty of reasons to get a summer job. If you haven't already, consider applying to a few places so you can work while you're home!
