Hunting for a Summer Job

The school year is coming to a close and graduation season is upon us, which means many students may be on the hunt for a summer job. Searching may sound like a daunting task, however with a few simple tricks you (or a family member) may be surprised!


First off, consider what businesses are busy during the summer months. Perhaps your favorite restaurant is opening a new outdoor seating area and needs additional staff. Or consider your local area, are there any areas that attracts tourists that may need temporary help? Also, any outdoor activities are a great place to look such as an amusement park, parks & recreation services or a golf range. 

College students can take advantage of their free time and take on an internship. Students can put their education into action and explore a field of interest while boosting their resume for the future. On the other hand maybe you are looking for a job with more flexibility (and leave time for a vacation) or you want to inspire your teenage to learn the value of a dollar. In that case, odd jobs may be a perfect fit. You can clean windows or start a yard work service for your neighbors. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box, many people can think of large projects around the house that could use an extra set of hands.
