2. Service Industry

Jobs in the service industry can often seem intimidating for those who have no experience in restaurants. Loud, boisterous, and fast-paced; it’s easy to understand why some never considered themselves cut out for working in a restaurant.

Once you get the hang of it though, restaurant jobs, whether you’re a waiter, busboy, or bartender can be a lot of fun! Not to mention they typically pay cash and come with some perks like discounted food & drink when you visit off-hours. There are a ton of great restaurants and bars in Fort Lauderdale. Taking a few night or weekend shifts can pad your pockets in no-time.

3. Tutoring

Is there a class or subject you have down pat? That knowledge can be very valuable to a fellow college underclassman who may be struggling in that same subject matter. Tutoring can be a relatively painless, and quick way to make an extra $100 or so per week with just a few hours of work.

You might as well use what you already know, and you get the benefit of knowing that you’re helping a fellow student. Just look for the kid who’s sleeping next to you in class and sign up your first client! In some cases, you may even tutor without leaving your house via Skype sessions.

4. Boating Services

Fort Lauderdale is the yachting capital of the world. There are thousands of boats and boat owners in need of extra hands on deck. If you don’t mind the smell of salt in the air or the feeling of sun on your skin, a job in the open seas may be just what the doctor ordered.

Whether it’s maintenance, cleanup, or help around the office the boating industry is a huge source of employment and can be one for you too.
