In the article, “CAREERS: Summer Job Edition”, I learned that if you are looking for summer jobs, it’s important to keep your mind open to possibilities and to be flexible. There are jobs and opportunities everywhere you just need to keep your options open like asking for summer availability in particular businesses or even walking around where you live and looking for Help Wanted signs. Sometimes you just need to apply to places and create a full resume or list of references. It’s important that your list of references are able to vouch for your character and what type of worker you are.
At the end of the day you don’t have to work at a typical summer job if you don’t want to. You can look for more unusual or entertaining jobs that will make you feel a lot better about working. You can always think outside the box and even start your own type of work for the summer so that you don’t have to work for people. You can also think into the future when looking for summer jobs and try to find a job that can give you experience in the type of career field you are interested in.
