The Mindset-Summer Jobs

Written: May,2011

Summer is quickly approaching, and one of the things on most people’s mind, other than their plan to “soak up” as much fun as possible, is to find a summer job to give them the funds to do just that.

Summer jobs are now hot commodities. Teens no longer wish to be subjected to boredom from staying at home in the days, everyday, because their parents have them on a budget. They rather find a week day job no matter if it’s at minimum wage, so they can have their own funds to make their own rules on the weekends.

Ideally, teens should try to get summer jobs in the fields they wish to pursue a career in, but given the state of economies worldwide, ya’ll better take what you can get.

Here’s a Forbes list of best paying Summer Jobs:
