Working at boat rentals

Hi Worktravelers, Some of you are already in the USA, others are fixing to fly there. Every year, one of the most frequent questions in this part of summer is how to find a second job. So here’s a few tips.

VETERANS’ ADVICE
These girls found their own jobs not just in the USA but also in New Zealand and other countriers. They even brought jobs for other students from their travels. So heed their advice!

WEBSITES WITH JOBS (USA)
Look for opportunities around your location based on the ZIPcode.

ARTICLES
These two articles from a traveler’s magazine are not specifically USA-oriented, so be aware that some of the jobs (notably working with children) are illegal under the American Work/Travel visa, but they are pretty good. Recommended!

SOCIAL SECURITY
If you are a first-timer and you haven’t yet received your SS Card, you may need to overcome the myth that SSC is required for you to be able to work. It isn’t! Check the paragraph “Do I need a Social Security number before I start working?” here: http://www.ssa.gov/pubs/10181.html
An information for your employer, how to proceed before you get your SSC is here:
