Would it not be great to make the most of summertime trying new things and earning money? Well, let your hot season this year be extra worthwhile by applying for some part-time jobs Cebu has to offer!
Summer Positions Provided by the Government
Thanks to the Special Program for Employment of Students or Spes of the Cebu City government’s Department of Manpower Development and Placement (DMDP), students who want to earn this summer can experience working for the government for a while. This year, the agency is hiring a total of 1, 250 students to fill in their summer jobs; however, such an employment opportunity has limited slots only, so if you want to be one of the lucky participants this summer 2014, read our previous post to find out the details.
Service Crew Hiring in Fast Food Chains
The likes of McDonalds and Jollibee have always been generous in providing part-time summer jobs to lots of Cebuano students, and if you do consider working as a service crew in any of these well-known fast food chains, you’ll get the chance to earn cash while enjoying a supply of your favorite fast food snacks at the same time!

Online and Home-Based Jobs
It also pays if you have an internet connection and a well-functioning desktop computer or laptop at home. Online, you can actually find a wide range of job opportunities that do not even require strict qualifications, like a specific job experience or shift schedule. All you need to do is log in to reliable job sites, such as jobstreet.com or jobsdb.com, and search for part-time positions that perfectly fit your course or skills. For instance, if you are into IT, why not apply as a technical chat support representative through odesk.com? This job would entail you to answer customer queries worldwide via Skype or any other chat mediums that are mostly used online. Or better yet, look for a company that’s hiring a virtual assistant who can do secretarial tasks online or a content writer who can create articles for websites. These and the rest of the part-time jobs that are for different skills and fields are just waiting for you on the world wide web!
English as Second Language (ESL) Tutorial
Speaking of searching for online jobs, I have also come across part-time ESL tutorial positions while browsing Google the other day. Mynimo, for one, listed a Mandaue-based company hiring part-time English teachers for their Korean students. Working as an ESL tutor can be a great employment idea this summer simply because it can be as easy as using a headset with microphone and working at home. Yes, you can teach Korean, Japanese, and other Asian students online; however, some ESL companies may also require you to be present in their offices or schools for one-to-one tutorial sessions. So, look into the job posting carefully. Understand the requirements so you can successfully land in a part-time job that lets you practice your own English speaking skills while earning as well as have the chance to meet new friends from other countries.
Call Center Vacancies
Being fluent in English is not only about being able to teach ESL to Asian students, this skill may also be your ticket towards getting employed as a customer service representative or a call center agent. Teletech, Telstra, and Stream Global Services are just few of the Cebu-based call center companies that are in need of part-time employees to answer the queries of their customers through phone or chat. Just log in to the official websites of these companies or search for other BPO companies through leading job-hunting sites to learn the qualifications you have to meet and the requirements you have to secure to successfully be employed and experience working as a call center agent even before finishing your studies!
You see, Cebu actually has lots of part-time jobs to offer this summer. All you have to do to find the right employment opportunity is search the internet and be confident enough to try your first-ever job interview. =)
