Money doesn't make itself. Find a summer job and you'll get cash in your wallet and won't have to complain of boredom.


Step 1: Review classified ads
Review classified ads in newspapers and on the Internet.

Tip
If you're looking for a job in retail or in a restaurant, head out one afternoon with a stack of resumes and hit up every place you'd like to work.

Step 2: Talk to everyone
Tell everyone you know that you're looking for a job. You never know who might be either seeking an employee or aware of an available position.

Tip
If money isn't a major issue, you could look for an internship or another way to "try out" future career possibilities.

Step 3: Behave on interviews
When you get an interview, show up on-time, dress appropriately, and act confident and enthusiastic.

Step 4: Be persistent
Be persistent. Getting a job takes time and luck, but your hard work will pay off in the end.

Did You Know?
Teenage employment hit an all-time high in the summer of 1978, when 69% of 16-19 year olds were in the workforce.
