Looking for a Unique Summer Job?

You might be a college student home for the summer who’s looking for a job to earn some extra cash for that pizza you’re going to buy during the semester. Or, you might be someone looking to pick up a second job because your primary job just isn’t doing enough to pay the bills. Whatever the reason, working during the summer can bring a lot of unique opportunities to your door.

When you think of a summer job you might picture a lifeguard or a summer camp counselor, but there are a variety of events that will not only put some extra cash in your pocket, but will give you a bucket list topping experience. Besides adding a little excitement to your day, LGC employees like the opportunity to learn new skills when working at various venues. Here’s what one employee had to say about their experience: 

“Having worked with LGC a while, I have learned different skills at various job locations and have met a lot of great people.” 

Before the summer ends, consider applying to LGC for a chance to work one of these amazing events!

Sports Tournaments

Some of the biggest events in golf, tennis, baseball, basketball, and even cycling take place during the summer months. If you’re a sporting fanatic, getting to work these competitions can get you in the door for a behind the scenes experience of your favorite stadium or to see your favorite team out on the field practicing before the crowd arrives. Instead of saving up to buy a ticket, you can attend those events for free to save your pennies for other things!

Lavish Weddings 

Calling all rom-com enjoyers and romance readers! This is your time to shine and enjoy a beautiful venue while helping the happy couple celebrate their special day. Weddings are known for their gourmet food that is melt in your mouth, delicious. Who knows? You might get a taste!  These types of events put you right in front of the people you’re helping which can give you a really good chance to make an impression. Using these opportunities to connect with the people you’re serving can be a really great networking opportunity. Of course, not everyone is going to want to talk, but you never know who might be there!

Country Clubs & Spas

Not only do country clubs pay well, there’s a vast spectrum of roles you can take on. If you like being outside, working poolside, on the golf course, or maintaining the grounds would suit your fancy. If you’re more of an indoor person, helping out in the spa, bar, restaurant, or office might be more up your alley. Either way, country clubs are a conduit for professional opportunities whether you are there temporarily or permanently. Similar to weddings, you never know who you might meet and how it could impact your career.

Outdoor Concerts 

Are you a music enthusiast but don’t have enough money for concert tickets? Getting a spot at your favorite artist’s concert can drain your bank account significantly, so why not add to it instead? You get to experience the concert while earning money! From bartenders to ticketing crews, you’ll be able hear the music you love and maybe even get behind the scenes access.

Summer Festivals & Fairs

If you like fireworks, fair food, live music, or parades, a State Fair or summer festival is the place to work for you. Working one of these events is a great way to feel connected to your local community especially for a film, music, or cultural festival. Not only will you get to immerse yourself in the event you’re working, you might learn something along the way.
