Best Summer Jobs in Miami

Papa is always looking for caring, dedicated and motivated people to become Papa Pals.

What starts as a summer job could be a true calling

Summer in Florida is a season filled with fun in the sun and family vacations. It can also be a great time to make some extra cash for those looking to boost their income, including college students, teachers and educators.

In Miami, things tend to slow down when summer starts because it’s known to be our “off season”. This means that your employment search may need a little guidance. Check out the list below for some job ideas you may not have thought of.

1. Papa Pal

Papa is an on-demand service for seniors in need of a little help doing errands, getting around, or just in search of some companionship. Our Pals get the luxury of flexible hours and no long-term commitments making it a perfect summer gig. Even greater than that, we offer people a chance to impact the lives of the elderly and make a positive difference.

2. Camp counselor

Summertime means summer camps, and summer camps need camp counselors. I’m sure you remember your younger years where every month of your summer was carefully scheduled between different camps. Well, now you’re probably old enough to be a counselor at those camps and make good money doing it.

The seasonal nature of the job means that plenty of people simply won’t be able to walk away from full time positions or have interest in temporary employment. This creates opportunity for those specifically in search of a summer gig. If you can handle a group of kids while potentially being outdoors in the hot Miami sun, look out for summer camp counselor jobs and give it a try!

3. Summer intern

Companies are constantly looking for ways to reduce their cost of employment. In some companies, summer interns get paid–just not the full-time employee health benefits. Check out companies on Indeed or ZipRecruiter to help you find what internships are paid and unpaid. 

Miami is a major hub for corporate enterprise and finance both domestic and international. There are hundreds of companies that could use the additional manpower and summer intern positions make it much more attainable. If you’re going to school and can align a job with your preferred career path, even better!

4. Babysitter

Parents want to have fun too! During the summer kids are typically out of school which means an additional 7 to 8 hours a day where they aren’t being watched by a teacher. If you can find an opportunity and establish some rapport with the family, you might have yourself a client that lasts the whole summer! Babysitting is a cash business that doesn’t require much work. Sounds like a good gig to me!

Check Craigslist or other more local job listing avenues to see what’s out there.

These are some of the most popular summer jobs in Miami.
