Resort WorkHotel

Resorts provide many summer jobs and some winter jobs, and depend heavily upon students seeking seasonal work. The most common jobs in resorts are waiter or waitress, dishwasher, housekeeper or other hotel work. Though your duties may not be oriented toward a particular career, you are being paid to work in what is often a beautiful and peaceful work environment where you can befriend many Americans.

Hotel Work

Hotel work is similar to resort work, and the jobs are often entry-level. Most openings are for housekeepers, but there are also positions as bellboys and valets, front desk receptionists, laundry assistants, restaurant workers, hotel maintenance workers, etc. The salaries for most of the jobs are lower, as you are expected to improve your wages by earning tips.

Restaurant WorkRestaurant

Restaurant work is easy to find. Though tiring, you come into contact with different types of people and can make good money through tips. Expensive restaurants have greater competition for jobs, which usually offer better salaries and obtain larger tips. In coffee shops and diners, waitstaff and baristas are needed. Large restaurants need bussers to clear the tables, and kitchen and dishwashing staff. Most restaurant jobs are found by walking in and speaking to the restaurant manager.

Department Stores

The American department store offers a variety of employment opportunities. The most common job is a sales assistant, helping customers or working the cash registers. Large department stores are open six or seven days a week, and many are open in the evenings. This will enable you to arrange a fairly flexible working schedule. Many stores hire extra workers during the busy Christmas shopping season, which begins around Thanksgiving (late November). Supermarkets have high staff demands for workers. Most openings are for cashiers, baggers, stock clerks, and sales assistants. The best way to find these jobs is to walk in with your resume and ask to see the manager.

Theme

 Theme Parks

America has many theme parks, such as Disney World, Six Flags, and Busch Gardens. All of these parks hire a lot of student workers each summer. The work opportunities vary from operating the amusement park rides to selling popcorn and candy to working in various souvenir shops.

 

National ParksPark

Jobs in the National Parks may interest you, not so much for the jobs themselves, but for the opportunity to live in some of the most beautiful and remote areas of the U.S. Most of the jobs will be in the small towns around the perimeters of the parks or in lodging centers within the parks. Some of the most interesting are Grand Canyon, Rocky Mountain, Yellowstone, Yosemite and Great Smoky Mountains. Get more information at: www.us-national-parks.net.
