Summer is in full effect but what are you going to do until school starts back up again? Have you thought about getting a summer job? It’s not too late to look into something part time, there are plenty of places that even hire just for the summer.

Getting a summer job is a great way to keep busy during the summer if you didn’t sign up for summer classes, meet new people, plus you get some extra cash! It’s a good idea to save some of the money you earn during your summer job, this way you can begin the school year with some funds in your bank account without having to ask your parents.

You can also use your hard earned summer money for some fun during your break as well. Go out a few times to see the city with friends. Visit the places you had been wanting to but couldn’t during the semester, try a new restaurant you’ve been dying to try. You’ll have the extra time and money to have a fun and memorable summer!

Some good places to look for seasonal positions:

  • Retail Stores
  • Coffee Shops
  • Small Boutiques
  • Bookstores
  • Restaurants
  • Music Stores

Other good ways to save some money this summer:

  • Dog Walking
  • Baby Sitting
  • House Sitting
  • Blogging
  • Tutoring Summer Classes
  • Become a Door To Dorm Student Ambassador


Taking a summer internship can be one of the most rewarding and memorable experiences of your career. With summer just around the corner, the deadlines are coming along with it for most companies. If you haven’t already applied and/or interviewed for any internships this summer, you definitely want to act now. If you are still a bit “ify” about the whole deal, here are a few pros vs cons that might help with you ultimate decision.

Pro: Networking. Introduce yourself to as many people as you can, engage in conversation and get to know your peers. Networking is one of the easiest and best things that can help you in your career.

Pro: Advantage. If after your graduate, you decide you want to re-apply at the same company you interned with,  they will remember your name and work ethic because you showed them during your internship.

Pro: References. Your boss at your summer internship will make a great reference for future job opportunities. Work hard and earn those letters of recommendation!

Pro: Experience. Whether paid or not, you’re still getting experience which will benefit you in the long-run throughout your career.

Wait, we forgot to mention a con…

Con: Not doing a summer internship will make you miss out on all these pros!
