summer jobs

Have a little money to finance your student life? And why not ?

Having a summer job is an opportunity to confront the professional world and gain new experience.

During the high season, several companies offer seasonal job offers to deal with the shortage of manpower which is explained by the departure of employees on leave and by the increase in the workload.

Holiday entertainer, waiter, salesman, receptionist… Whatever the field, word of mouth remains the best way to find a good summer job. It is also possible to search on classified ad sites.

If you are interested in the field of personal services (gardening, childcare, animal walking, household chores, shopping, etc.), it is best to contact the managers directly to find out about the conditions, the steps to be taken and the profile sought.

Associative work is a good way to acquire professional knowledge and skills that do not come under basic university training.

Since you have free time, you can help people who really need it. Charities are always looking for volunteers to provide the services they offer.

Experience in volunteering is often appreciated by recruiters for a job or even an internship. It’s a real asset that shows that you understand the workings of the professional world and the tricks of the trade. This experience will allow you to adopt the right reflexes to facilitate your arrival on the job market.

The sport

Preparing for exams… lessons… busy schedule… When you’re a student, you have little free time during the school year to take care of your mental and physical health. The summer period is certainly the ideal time for sports activities.

  • If you are a nature lover, hiking is a perfect mix of sport and discovery. Thanks to its benefits, it allows you to disconnect, admire the landscapes, free your mind from negative thoughts and worries to boost your creativity and find a certain harmony.
  • If you want to enjoy the summer sun, there is no better than water activities. It is an effective way to reshape your silhouette, strengthen your respiratory system, your cardiovascular rhythm, your muscles and improve your blood circulation.
  • You can also go for bike rides and enjoy the feeling of freedom it brings.

Everyone has their own sport! And you? Which is yours ?

The trips

No need to go to the other side of the world to have a great summer vacation! You can plan a weekend with family or friends near you.

Summer is festival season! If you are passionate about music, humor or dance, you can attend concerts and other cultural events.

It is also an opportunity to discover your city and perfect your knowledge. You can organize a guided tour in a nearby town to meet new people and take your mind off things. A walk in the middle of nature, a boat cruise…, whatever the region, you will inevitably find something to brighten up your summer evenings and your weekends!


Reading a book during the summer holidays is also a way to travel, to escape, to learn and to enrich your vocabulary. You can make a selection of books on the subjects that interest you to create a summer library.

You can also learn a new language, fill in your gaps or do self-study to deepen your knowledge…

The little pleasures

Summer is the time for small pleasures:

  • Sharing a good meal with family or friends
  • Visiting loved ones
  • Repaint or decorate your room
  • Etc.

The return to college

If the summer holidays are made to rest, it is also the good time to revise your courses and consolidate the knowledge acquired during the year.

You can manage your time between studying and relaxing. The ideal is to set up a revision program. Restorative sleep and physical activity will allow you to better assimilate your lessons and improve your concentration and memory skills.
