Description of Business: This company provides beach chair and umbrella delivery and setup for Charleston, Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island and surrounding areas for beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and bicycles.

Description of Area: This area is an island on the South Carolina coast, less than 20 minutes from Charleston. With its 6 miles of white, sandy beaches, the location is a place of beautiful serenity for residents and visitors. When walking around the island, watch the sky and water for wildlife. Osprey nests can be spied, pelicans soar and dive for their dinner, dolphins frolic, and giant loggerhead sea turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. If you’re lucky, you might see hundreds of baby turtles making a mad dash for the ocean. The island is home to many nesting sea turtles and the community works together to protect these endangered animals. Boating opportunities include kayaks, canoes, sailboats, fishing boats and even harbor cruises. Personal water craft like Jet Skis can be rented to explore nearby islands. Getting around the island is easy, with most roads having marked bike paths for safety. Bicycle and rollerblade rentals are available on the island.

Travel Time to the job site, example: 12 hours from New York by bus. Cost $100.00.

NOTE: There will also be many opportunities for second jobs in the area.

    I’m 21 and I live in Hungary in Europe. I’d like to work in SC for the summer because my old relaives live in Anderson and I could be close to them and help them. I worked in shops, as a salesman, I worked as a staff at building stages for music festivals, and I worked as a cameraman. so, I could do different jobs. Could you help me find a job for the summer? Thanks indeed, David
