Summer will soon be upon us and if you are going to school your semester has probably already ended. If you do not already have a job lined up it is time to start thinking about what you want to do this summer.  Now is the time to get out and explore the world because once you start your career it may be difficult to take more than a few weeks off at a time. There are so many interesting employment options available. Here are just a few ideas for the summer job of your dreams.

Work In A Chalet In France

France has many opportunities for foreigners for summer employment and it is a great place to head for work experience. You must speak at least basic French to get a job though. Spending your summer working in a chalet is a great way to make new friends, have great experiences and vastly increase your skillset. You can get jobs in housekeeping, hosting, cooking or management if you have any experience. When you are not working, there are plenty of other things to do in the Alps; you can hike the trails, swim in lakes and explore the surrounding area.

Paid Work Experience In South Africa

South Africa is a beautiful country and there are many opportunities for jobs there. You must have a job before you enter the country if you plan on working there. The job fields that are looking for qualified workers are: agriculture, architecture, business, economics, engineering, health, medicine, information, communications, and technology. If you are working on a degree in one of these fields; than this is the place for you. English is widely spoken but some knowledge of Afrikaans will help you in securing a job.

Get A Job On A Yacht

Working on a yacht is a fabulous way to spend your summer. You can help in the kitchen, help with maintenance, or become part of the crew that sails the yacht if you have the experience. There are so many areas of the world where you can go. The French Riviera is an area that rents out a lot of yachts and it is a good place to start if you are looking for a beautiful trip with lots of fascinating things to see. The Caribbean is also a great place to find employment on a yacht.

Become a Nanny

If you love children and you are thinking of a career in childcare, becoming a nanny or an au pair is the job for you. You can do it at home, or abroad. Going abroad is particularly useful if you’re interested in developing your language skills. There are various requirements that au pair companies will have, so make sure you do your research. You may also be required to drive, and they can check your driving license, so be honest if you have any driving penalties.

Work On A Soccer Camp In The USA

Soccer, known as Football in most of the world, is the fastest growing sport in the US. If you have coaching experience, or have played at a college level or better in Europe, it is pretty easy to find a job working with kids at a soccer camp in the US.  If you love the sport this is a great way to pass your time. You can inspire the children to love the sport as much as you do. A lot of the camps are overnight camps so you can experience other great outdoor activities like campfires, water sports, basketball, volleyball, and baseball.
