Who hasn't dreamed of setting off for the summer to discover another country like Italy, Spain or France? Wouldn't it be great to get some international experience, to improve your foreign language skills and at the same time to do something that looks impressive on your CV? But going abroad often seems too expensive - unless you can combine it with a summer job. That would be perfect.
Some typical summer jobs:
- Supervisor in a holiday camps
- Service staff in cafe in cafes, bars or restaurants

A summer job and an investment in your future!

What are my responsibilities as a summer au pair?
Your main task as a summer au pair is to take care of the children of your host family. A special aspect of being a summer au pair: Often families need an au pair to provide care for the children during the summer school holidays, which is also partly the family vacation time. There's a good chance therefore that you also might accompany your host family somewhere on their summer holiday trip. Mainly you would work mornings and afternoons while the host parents are at their jobs and the children would otherwise be in school.
