For more ideas, check the latest tweets from accounts that post jobs year round, but focus on the ones in industries that tend to have seasonal jobs:
Finally, follow the accounts of seasonal employers you'd like to work for. There's a lot of turnover during the summer and it's very common to see companies scrambling to hire again mid-summer.
2) Smart Twitter searches to find latest summer jobs
Twitter Search is also a good way to find summer jobs but you need to use the right keywords to get meaningful results. For example, if you search “summer job”, most of the results will be people twittering that they found a summer job or that they need a summer job.
Or if you search on these next phrases, many of the results are scammers who just want your money:
- screw summer jobs
- Want an easy summer job? For extra cash?
- Need a summer job?
- Anyone Need a JOB? Extra Money For the SUMMER?
- “summer job:” or “my summer job:” or “best summer job:” followed by a url
Don’t waste your time with those.
Instead, use the following keyword phrases to pull up summer job leads as quickly as possible. Just click the links to see the latest results:
- Summer internship available
- Summer position
- “Looking for a summer internship?”
- seeking intern for the summer
- “Looking for a summer job?”
- #summerjobs looking
- [your location] summer job (such as “chicago summer job”)
If you have Twitter's Location feature enabled, you can use the Search Filters to see results near you:
