Math Tutors who help students improve in STEM areas including math are in demand during summer as students prepare for the next year of school or catch up on areas they need to improve on from the year prior. The pay for tutoring can range from $30.00 to $50.00 dollars an hour. Tutoring also provides flexible work-life balance as noted in the reviews from CareerBliss community members.

“Summer is a great way to work in fields which allow for flexible schedules and support industries in education, tourism, and food services where demand often increases,” says Heidi Golledge Chief Happiness Officer and Cofounder of CareerBliss.

Jobs with flexible schedules were high on the CareerBliss Happiest Summer Jobs list, including Teaching Assistants, Student Technicians, Waitresses, and Bank Tellers.

For many jobs on our list, pay was important to employees but not as vital as the joy they found in their daily work, a flexible schedule, and relationship with their peers.

“The summertime provides a nice surge in jobs for those looking for part-time or seasonal work. Our goal is to equip jobseekers with the tools they need to find their happiest job – anytime of the year,” says Golledge.
