Finding a summer job is not much different from finding a job in general.
A few things that make summer jobs different:
- You can work outdoors (it's not freezing!)
- There are special summer job programs available for youth (see below)
- You have more competition for jobs because many young people and students have just finished school and are looking for jobs too
But don't despair!
Here are a few places to find a summer job:
Youth Summer Job Programs:
