Where to Find Summer Jobs in Columbus, Ohio
If you like being outdoor and like to play golf, there is no better summer job than to work at a golf course!
No matter where you live courses all over the country are hiring new employee to work part time this season. Living in Columbus, where there are more than enough golf courses, from public to private, to be able to find a summer job that you will enjoy.
Based on what the courses I know are looking for in the area, here is exactly what they are looking for:
1. Someone with basic golf knowledge: This will definitely help you in an interview. Weather you play golf, or have worked at a course (a definite plus), you will be able to communicate with the employer a lot more easily, and generally have a topic to discuss other issues with the game itself rather than the job at hand.
2. Appearance: Even though this is a part time job and it is a golf course, please do not come to the interview in golf attire! A nice shirt and tie are still the best way to go to an interview no matter if you were going to work for a retail store, gas station, or anywhere else for that matter! This will give the employer a good sense that you are taking this position seriously and that you would like the job, so no jeans and t-shirts!
3. Resume/References: Do bring a resume and some references to the interview. Even if this is a first job, you can make up a resume citing education or past experiences in the game of golf, or odd jobs that you have done. The resume gives the employer the idea that you are reliable, have experience dealing with people and following thorough on tasks. If you have handled money in a previous job, this would also be a huge plus.
Now that the basics are out of the way, where do you find these jobs? pgalinks.com is the best place to start. Golf courses from all over the USA will post jobs from full time to part time in the employment section of the site. It will give a brief overview of the position, experience level required and a way to contact the club manager or club pro.
A second option is to simply call around to see what is available. There may be positions wanted inside working the shop or outside working with carts and getting people off the tee. There will be times where an employer would simply want you to work weekend nights, or at times just one day a week, so it will be dependent on if you need money for school, bills, or just a little spending money to determine what you want out of a job in the golf business. The free golf is what most people do it for and the small pay they receive is not a motivating factor at all.
This is the best time to start looking for a summer job at a golf course. The snow is melting, its getting warmer, and employers are looking to fill open spots before things get busy, so get out there and start looking!
