Summer jobs?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
OK, here's the situation. I was a part-time ski instructor and a full-time engineer for the past 3 years. Then in January of this year, I finally decided to quit my engineering job and go full-time as a ski instructor. I had a great time, improved both my teaching and skiing, and made enough money to survive without having to dip into my savings. Now that the mountain is closed, I'm currently unemplyeed. I've filed for unemployment and they're actually giving me as much money as I made as an instructor (it has to do with timing).

The bad news is that my house in LA is going to be really hot during the summer, and we don't have air conditioning, so I'm going to have to find something to do outside of the house.

I'm currently looking for a job as a math or science tutor, but I've also considered working at a summer camp. My only requirement is that this job has to be something that I can safely leave at the end of the summer, and it has to be in the LA area (so I can't exactly head down to South America for the summer). Any suggestions? What do you guys do during the summer?

Please don't suggest posting on skiing message boards as a career opstion, as I have already spent 3 years doing that as an engineer for a defense contractor, and it really wasn't as much fun as it sounds.

Part time teacher at a Community College. I did it a few times and had fun.

if you have experience in engineering, why not try to leverage that into some temp or contract work.

Also, I know a lot of people who ski all winter and work construction jobs in the summer, union, to support their winter skiing habits.

Thought about working as an extra?
