Finishing your college or university studies soon? Wondering how you’re going to pay for that summer holiday? 

As time zooms towards the summer, it’s time to cast your mind towards a summer job and earning yourself some money! It can be really competitive getting hold of a constant, reliable job for the summer, that allows you to earn. Here is our four-point checklist to maximise your chances of getting a job this summer.

Your CV

The first logical thing to do is to double check your CV is up-to-date. Perhaps in your CV profile, briefly mention that you’re back and ready to work this summer, in between your studies. 

It’s never too early

The key is to not leave it too late! Starting your search in June, you may find that all the best, longer-term summer jobs have been snapped up. SO, get cracking and avoid disappointment!

Join a recruitment agency (not that we’re biased!)

Yes, we are always going to big up the recruitment agency option, however it is genuinely one of, if not THE best way of getting yourself out there quickly. Why not get yourself signed up in advance of the summer, so you are registered and ready to go? There is also then the potential for us to line something up for when you’re back.

Flexible & reliable

Certainly from a company or recruitment agency’s point of view, the more willing and flexible you are to work, the more trust there is to put more work your way. That isn’t to say you should dedicate your entire time to work…it is the summer after all! But just ensure you are someone that can be relied on.
