High school students and many college students as well, often rely on summer employment to earn extra money for the costs of the coming school year or simply to just have a little extra cash. Many have been worried about the job market for summer employment but there are those who are taking a positive outlook on the summer job situation.
There are jobs open, although not enough to combat the majority of unemployed workers, but the difference in summer employment is that employers are looking for temporary workers that aren’t overqualified for the positions available.
It is for this reason that many people feel seasonal jobs are going to be available to students as summer months can bring increases in sales, travel, and tourism-focused industries.
However, there are those who are advising high school students and college students to look for internships or summer programs that may be beneficial for experience related to applying for college, meaning extra curricular experience, or internships that may open job opportunities in the future.
While the job market hasn’t recovered to full strength as of yet, it seems that seasonal summer jobs are going to be available for most high school and college students. Many feel that this summer may be a time in which business owners test just how much the economy has recovered.
