Ask people around the country about Orlando, FL and they’ll probably mention Disney World or one of their favorite water parks. To those of you who are familiar enough with the area you know UCF is a rapidly growing college institution. Beyond the Golden Knights there are several other colleges growing in this centrally located and relatively affordable Florida city.
If you’re an Orlando college student looking for a part-time job, Papa has got you covered! There are plenty of opportunities to take advantage of and we can help you.
1. Papa Pal
Papa is a fantastic organization on a mission to create an extended family for the seniors in our cities that need them most. This city is growing quickly and there is a large senior population outside of the college area. Being a Papa Pal is an ideal position for you if you like to help the elderly. As a Papa Pal you will always have something different to do each time. Sometimes you will drive your senior to different places. Other times they might just need help around the house or a companion.
Papa Pals provide love and compassion, and becoming one provides you with a great part-time job. The best part is the gratification of making a positive difference in someone’s life. Apply here
2. Leasing assistant
Orlando is filled with new apartments being developed and others that are built and looking for tenants. This could spell opportunity for a college student with enthusiasm and people skills. Typically, these properties look for someone to manage the leasing office and help tour potential renters when they come in looking for a place to stay.
If you have some knowledge of the surrounding area and can work a few days a week between classes, this could make for a great part time opportunity.
3. Service industry jobs
Between the tourism and the growing year-round population, Orlando’s restaurants are very busy! Snagging a job in one of the resort-area restaurants could provide an opportunity for some massive seasonal income in a mostly cash business, which is obviously ideal for a college student.
The service industry can be a chaotic working environment, but once you get the hang of it, it’s a fun industry to be a part of. You may have to work some nights and weekends but once you get your first tip-out I imagine you’ll find it a worthwhile endeavor.
4. Summer camp counselor
You’ve probably noticed how busy it is during the summer in Orlando! Kids love a theme-park-forward city, and there are plenty of families who utilize Orlando for Summer camp. If you’re a college student with some patience who enjoys working with kids, you’re in demand!
Summer may come and go but it comes at a perfect time for a college student to utilize a break from classes and make some extra cash.
Finally it’s time to pick yourself up from your couch and go get that job you need!
