With Memorial Day marking the unofficial start of summer, we got to thinking about “hot” careers. From having fun in the sun to making someone’s summer vacation the best ever, there’s an array of great professions to consider that keep people busy every June, July, and August.
Hotel/resort/cruise ship managers: Make vacationers feel at home, but pampered, at hotels and resorts, and on cruise ships with the training offered by hospitality management schools. You’ll learn how to create a welcoming environment for families and groups, on vacations or attending meetings and conferences during the summer.
Photographer: Families often use their beach or overseas vacations as time to take their holiday cards, but they need professional photographers to create the best poses and capture the right settings and light. Photography classes help budding photographers develop the skills to capture those moments on a full- or part-time basis, especially if you live in vacation locales.
Scuba diving instructor: Scuba diving schools provide the training for individuals who love the marine life and want to make a career showing vacationers the amazing sights underneath the sea. Gain the certifications necessary to take groups of people on outings they’ll remember forever, and to teach them how to safely explore the ocean.
HVAC technician: When the temperature starts to rise in beach rentals or when the air conditioning breaks before a summertime family visit, HVAC technicians are in demand. You can help people cool off – and reduce any summertime stress – with expertise from HVAC schools. A fact-acting HVAC technician who has expert knowledge to diagnose and correct problems is more welcome than a tall glass of lemonade in the summer.
As you embark on a summer vacation or use your time away to ponder your next career move, consider whether one of these or other hot summertime jobs may be for you.
