Last Updated on February 8, 2017

Looking to earn some extra spending money during spring break? Here are some spring break job ideas to help you get started. While the idea of spending your spring break partying, lying on the beach, and basking in the sun sounds appealing, many college students view the downtime as an opportunity to earn some extra spending money. If it sounds like you, here are some spring break job ideas to help you get started.

Baby Sitter

Many college students earn money by babysitting younger kids during spring break. In fact, it is a great time to try out the week as a baby sitter for a family who has such requirement. If it works out good for you, it could lead to a summer nanny position too!

Camp Counselor

In many areas there are full day camps for kids during spring break. These may include sports camps, arts and crafts camps, outdoor camps, and more. If you are interested to be a summer camp counselor, trying out this spring break job is a great way to find out if it’s a good fit for you.

Restaurant Team Member

We all love eating at the restaurants, so why not work at one – as a busser, line cook, server or a  host? During spring break many restaurants look for part time or full time staff members for various job opportunities. In fact, it’s a great way to meet new people and work on your social skills.

Office/Clerical Work

Get a dose of a professional life by taking up temporary office work as a clerk or an administrator. Depending on your interest, this could be one of the best resume builders you can get, and it can lead to a long-term, high-paying position.

Pet Sitter 

This is usually a great spring break job, as many families head out of town during this break on a vacation and they need someone to give their pets some extra love and care. So, if you are looking to make some furry friends, consider being a pet sitter or a dog walker. If you have a soft corner for animals, this job will hardly feel like any work.
