What would be your ultimate summer job?
Adam W., 17
I’m not sure this job exists, but I’d like to travel the world and critique tourist destinations. If I had this job, I would be able to be on TV, meet new people, and get paid to travel to amazing tourist spots.
Risa R., 17
I want to travel to third world countries and teach kids how to dance Hawaiian. Hula is life! I want to do this because those kids don’t have much. And growing up, for 12 years, I’ve been dancing Hawaiian, so I want to teach them something I love and what I’m passionate about. I want to leave, knowing I left behind a part of me.
Caroline B., 14
My ultimate summer dream job would be as a MuchMusic VJ. I want to be able to meet famous people and be on TV. VJs look like they have lots of fun and they seem to get a lot of freebies. They also have stylists, and I think that’s very cool.
Julia G., 16
My ultimate summer dream job would be as a foot model. This is because I LOVE shoes and I want to see my legs in magazines. I know this would be a fun experience, and I can just imagine all the great people I’d meet.
Lorenzo D., 14
Being a video game tester would be my ultimate summer dream job. Playing video games is my ultimate pastime, and being able to be paid to do it would be a lot of fun. What would be greater than to be paid to veg on a couch and get paid to do it?
Sabrina C., 14
Even though it seems so normal, my ultimate summer dream job would be at Wonderland because I know it’s a lot of fun. Being able to interact with a lot of people seems like fun, and I’m sure I get discounts on everything, too.
Revy R., 18
My dream job for the summer would be working behind the scenes of a movie or television show. I am enamoured by what directors, producers, visual effects engineers, stunt coordinators, and costume and set designers have to do to create such great results. Although I absolutely love being the viewer, it would be such a great experience for me to be part of the production of an actual episode or scene of a movie. I really want to see the action beforehand. Ultimately, I would be satisfied because I would have personally contributed to something that I can share with others.
Karen E., 17
I’d love to be a rock star because I like music and I want to be famous. I know the summer is a short while, but it’s an experience that’s worth having, and I’d love to know how it feels to be in the public eye.
Derik R., 17
If I had my ultimate summer dream job, it would be as a Blink 182 roadie. Blink is one of my favourite bands, and they seem really cool to be around. So, to be able to tour with them would be a dream come true.
