Job Details

Work Description: You will be drawing caricature (comic) portraits for customers, mostly tourists on the boardwalk along the beach or in amusement parks. This job requires basic art skills. Your employer will train you on how to draw caricature portraits. You may be working on the boardwalk near the ocean, in the amusement park, or in the shopping mall. You may be outside most of the time, so business will also depend on the weather.

Salary and Bonuses: 1) Average minimum of $7.00 – $10.00 per hour plus tips depending on your speed. 2) For every drawing that you do, you will get a percentage of the paid price which will be 32% -34%. How much you make will depend on how fast you can draw.

Accommodation Cost:

Accommodation Description: You will most likely be staying at the Myrtle Grand Beach Inn temporarily. If not, your employer will arrange temporary housing for you. Your employer is willing to give you advice on more permanent housing for the summer once you arrive, since in the past most international students have been successful in finding their own housing and prefer to do this instead.
