Hi, I'm currently at university and want a job near home over the summer for like 3 months. Does anyone know of any good sites which has jobs? cause I've looked on loads of sites through google && all of them are rubish basically.
I know its hard cause of the credit crunch stuff but I really want one

    Hi playdead,

    Geneve makes a good point about internships, but these are often unpaid so perhaps you need to consider what your priority for the summer is: making money or getting experience.

    TheSite has some interesting articles about part-time and summer work:

    Creative summer jobs

    Part-time jobs

    Also, why not take a look at the Job hunting section on Lifetracks.com. You can use the job finder from directgov on every page. It’s a very quick and easy search tool to help you find jobs in your local area :)

    Good luck!
    Laura

    The best thing you can do is a summer internship with a company you are looking to work for on completion of your degree. Often if you do well during the summer program, they fund you throughout the remainder of your degree.


    Do these pay, usually? In my experience most internships are unpaid. Which is the biggest load of bollocks ever and really ought to be illegal. But that's just a little bee that's been living in my bonnet for a while now.

    Playdead - have you tried temping agencies - Adecco, Office Angels, Brook Street, all the usual high street recruitment agencies?

    Contact some construction agencies. They usually have work going if you dont mind carrying concrete about all day.

    local businesses are the sort for summer jobs so i think u'd be better looking closer to home than on the net. i would check the net though as well, u never kno. the charity shops are probably a good bet, i dunno if u get paid for short term, i think u do.
