Summer Jobs Prep Time

The start of Term 4 means it’s not long until the summer break.

Are you thinking about getting a summer job? If you are, now’s the perfect time to start getting organised.


Ways to prepare

You could:

  • Create or update your resume
  • Work out how much time you’ll have available to work
  • Plan how you’ll be able to get to and from work
  • Read up on your rights and responsibilities
  • Find out what you’ll need (e.g. Tax file number and super account)
  • Start looking out for jobs near you
  • Read up about how to write great cover letters to go with your resume or application
  • Start practising how to answer interview questions with friends or family members

Don’t worry if you’re not sure where to start, we’ll be writing more posts over the next few weeks with details about how to go about each of the items above.


Benefits of summer jobs

You might be hoping to spend the entire summer holidays vegging out and relaxing, and that’s perfectly understandable.

But if you are thinking about getting job, here’s our top reasons to go ahead and take the plunge.

  1. The most obvious is that you’ll be earning money – you’ll have some fun money to spend, or you could start saving up a big ticket item, travel, or uni.
  2. You’ll learn new skills
  3. Build up your resume
  4. Meet new people
  5. Sample different jobs and industries
  6. Boost your confidence

Remember, you don’t have to work full time – a part time job could help you achieve all the benefits and still leave you with lots of free time to enjoy the summer.
