From life guarding to working at local museums or restaurants, tons of young people find interesting and rewarding jobs every summer. Perhaps you want to explore a career field by working in a related job for the summer or, maybe, you just want to do something unique that you may not have the opportunity to do again. The summer job seeker begins in early Spring by asking themselves what they would enjoy doing for the summer. To land a satisfying, relevant summer job, you will need to think seriously about where you will be living and what type of work you want to pursue. A successful summer job search will include networking with friends, family, professionals and talking with your career advisor.
