Ahhh, summer. All those glorious days full of possibilities stretched out in front of you. Hours to play and have fun without the daily rigors of high school. Sounds great, right? Yup, until about the second week in and then, boredom – or chores – strikes.
Why not plan ahead before the inevitable ennui manifests itself and get – wait for it, kids – a summer job?
Not only can you earn some money, you can gain valuable life and work experience. Plus nothing looks better on a college application, future resume or in your parents’ eyes than a kid with a purpose.
Below, the Index Tribune helps you begin your summer job search with a few places that are looking for help.
