1. Keep seeking positionsDid you know that Fastweb lets you search for part-time jobs? All you have to do is type in your hometown’s zip code and see what positions are available. Make sure that your LinkedIn page is up-to-date with your most current GPA and work and activity experiences. If possible, get your résumé reviewed by your academic advisor or career services at your university before you head home. Having a temporary job while you’re at home can be advantageous for multiple reasons. Not only will you be familiar with the area, but you may even have access to a personal vehicle or public transport. The wages you earn can be saved for books that you know you’ll need for the upcoming school year or for the apartment rent on campus. You shouldn’t give up on the job search just because you’re stuck at home. If you know people in your hometown, you can network with them to see if they know of any openings at local businesses or within family friends’ homes. Some positions won’t be as “flashy” as others, like babysitting children or dog-walking, but remember that these are temporary and can be decent resumé boosters to show that you didn’t sit back during the summer.

2. VolunteerWhether you’re working for wages or can’t secure a paying job, volunteering is a great option since the community you’re in likely needs support from people like you. Normally these positions can be found within the town’s community center or park district, though sometimes they can be posted in the local newspaper. Visiting the park district and enquiring about positions will likely help you discover positions like coaching, lifeguarding, or touring. Work at the community center may involve managing events for all ages, including set-up, receiving, and take-down. Some towns also have youth centers that can be more comfortable for you if you’re concerned about having to work with such a large age demographic. Youth centers tend to focus on children in the middle school grades up until high school age, so if you like working with younger people, youth centers may hold the volunteering opportunity you’re looking for.
