In Colombia we have no seasons, but anyone likes to work in vacations, it´s so boring, because if you work in your vacations... it wouldn't be vacations, but if we had seasons, I guess anyone would like to work in this time, but there's many people who have to do it, but in my opinion I wouldn´t do it.

I have not had a summer job before. But if I could have one, it will be something easy, because on summer the only thing that I want to do is chill. For me the perfect summer job would be a babysitter, because I have done it before but no like a job, and it wont be difficult for me. I recommend summer jobs, but only if you really want to have it, because if you dont want to... It will be disgusting for you.

I have never had summer job but I think it is something I should live because sometimes I don´t do anything at this time and could distract myself doing this, although I think it would be too hard to convince my parents to let me have a job. I think this would also help me to become a little more responsible for what I am currently, because I would have to comply with a schedule and everything that requires a job. Another thing that I would have to consider before trying to do this is that I did not know what I would like to do if I got to have a job because I am bored with many of the things if they don´t really interest me. But if I ever have the opportunity to have a job on vacation, I would take it because this would keep me a little distracted and also because I could buy some things I need without having to ask my parents.

I had a summer job since 6 months ago, in my grandparents shop, in that place I sold items and I managed with my aunt. I think that is a really good experience because you can learn all about how to take control of the sells and spend time with people probably you would never meet. I strongly recommend people to have a summer job and be productive.

I have not have a summer job. I consider that it is a opportunity to distract me. Because sometimes, when I don´t travel with my family, I get bored on vacation. Also, it´s a way to get money. Because for example, I like see my friends to go to the cinema, or eat anything.

At the same time, to meet new people and get work experience . And finally, because sometimes I don´t like ask all the money to my parents, because I know that they have many expenses in my home.

I think seriously this option, because the summer is the moment where you take a break from work or school, wehere you share with your family, possibly travel to other city or country and known a new culture, I accept the job only if it is very urgent, if i need urgent extra money, otherwise not.

I haven't had a summer job, well, once I worked like for three weeks to see how it was and it was great but at the end I was very tired because the hours were very long and I couldn't rest, there was always crowded. But of course I received good money and it feels good because you don't have to ask for money to your parents, you can get the things on you own. I would like to have another summer job, because it is a good oportunity to meet people, to earn money and to distract yourself.

No, I haven't had a summer job but I really want to do something like that someday because I'm always bored in my house when I have holidays, usually I just play videogames or sleep all the day, and I think that's a waste of my time. So, having a summer job would give me some experience for my life in the future and also, some money that's only mine, I believe that earn your own money it's something comforting and it's the reward of your work and effort. In those jobs you can learn about some things and also I think that you can learn about yourself and what you can do.
If I have a summer job, I would help my mother with all the household expenses and I would buy everything I want, so I would be so happy :).

I haven't had a summer job. I would like to have one to earn more money. Rarely, I help my mother in her job. She sometimes give me a little of money to save money. This job sometimes is monotous, and other times is too demanding.

I have never had a summer job, because I never had the necessity of been in a summer job, in vacations I used to travel with my family, or go to Cali to visit my grands, or getting out with my frinds or just watching Netflix alone in my house; but even if I have never had a summer job I would really like to get one, because in some of the holidays I get really boaring, and that kind of job is a really good oportunity to get some work experience doing something useful for others, and also I can meet new people out of the school, and know who is in fact the real world, and the most important reason is that I can get extra cash to buy the things that I like.
And if I have a summer job I would like to work in a coffee, or maybe in a clothes shop, beacuse is funny to interact with someone else.

I never had a summer job, I think that at this time of my life I do not need it, because I'm still young and my parents practically give me everything. But later I want to have a job and why not a summer job. It meens to me that a summer job is a good opportunity to spend my time in a good way and sometimes in my holidays I feel bored so the job can help me with the bore.

i had never have a summer job, but would like to do for getting experience and to keep basy my time doing something more interesting that watch tv liten to music or take care of my syster; also I think that is a good way to get money to keep it or to buy by your own the things that you want to buy, and if you are a person that love meeting people and have a lot of friends yo could have the opportunity of this.
