Kimberly’s Top 10 Reasons for Finding Summer Employment
1. Learning Opportunities:
Gain knowledge, experience, and professionalism needed to succeed in a career.
2. Short term goals:
Working for the summer can help you save money before going back to school or saving for that new car.
While working this summer, make new contacts who can help you find long term employment in the fall.
Short term or summer employment allows you to be excited about trying something new – you won’t get bored doing the same old thing!
5. Enjoy working in better weather conditions:
Think sun and fun while making a living!
6. May lead into full time employment:
Summer is a good time to discover if your employment is a good fit for you and your employer. If it is, often employers will try to keep you on all year.
7. Signing bonuses:
Many employers will give employees a bonus if they stay on for the entire season.
8. More employment opportunities to choose from:
Summer is the busiest time of the year for health care, hospitality, tourism, construction and landscaping.
9. Earn more money in a shorter time frame:
The fishing industry is a good example of good pay in a few months of work.
10. Make new friends:
Summer employment allows you to meet other people that are not necessarily around all year. For example, tourists or students who are here on a working visa. They too are only wanting short term employment, but may want to stay in touch and become good friends.
