Summer jobs: share your best photos and stories
During his university holidays, Alan Limke spent three summers at a theme park in Ohio, working as a clown musician with his friends. “We were a zany 12-piece band that snaked through the park, making guests laugh, scaring children, embarrassing cute girls and generally acting like idiots … and getting paid for it.”
From becoming a surf instructor to selling ice creams, the summer can be a great time to earn some cash for your studies. Though not all jobs are so enjoyable.
“I worked at a pool last summer where my official title was pool aide,” says reader LaurenD. “I had to clean up sick, sweep up smushed food, scrub toilets, and the best part; clean out the drains from the pool. You could find just about anything in there.”
