Day Work or Night Work – Which should I choose?
Working abroad for the summer can be an amazing, life changing experience. If you’re looking to live and work in a holiday resort, you’ll need to consider the lifestyle you’re hoping for. Whether you choose to work during the day or the evening/late into the night can make a huge difference to your experience. Work during the day means your evenings are free (but waking up early). Work at night means being in the thick of the action at the busiest times, so choose wisely!
Summer Jobs in resorts that offer work during the daytime will involve what holidaymakers are doing during that time. Hotels, restaurants, cafes, beach clubs & water parks are just some of the venues that will need staff throughout the day.
