How much can students earn during summers?


Jan 5, 2010   #1
How much can i expect to earn in summers as an Indian undergrad in America?
I need an estimate for the collegeboard CSS/profile

The federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. In some states it is higher, but $7.25 is the least you can expect to earn.

If you go to a big city where a lot of jobs are available, you might find more opportunities to earn a decent amount of money over the summer.

You can also do creative things involving the use of Craigslist.com and elance.com

Good luck!! it's hard...

I thought CSS profile needs what you have earned? not what you will earn... so if you didn't go, just leave it blank
It depends on what you are going to do and which states you are leaving.The minimum wage starts from 7.25 before tax. it means you will recive 6.75 after tax.but if you find job in restaurant or any place that they pay you cash you dont have to pay tax.Some student get paid internship and the payment is nice. I get pait 20 $ per hour pluse hotel and lunch during my internship.
