Sure, we’d all like to sit on our butts all summer and read magazines. What could be better than endless days at the beach, chilling with friends? Well, maybe hanging out at the mall and having enough money to actually buy stuff.
It’s a vicious cycle.
You need money to have fun and you have to work to make money, seriously cutting in on your leisure time.
Enter the summer job. A summer job might sound like a drag, or it might sound like freedom . . . depending on how you look at it.
For example, if you’re
lazy a tad on the unmotivated side, a summer job means that you have to: a) shower b) go to work c) do work d) go home e) shower again f) repeat.
That cuts into the amount of time you have to: a) hang out with friends b) play Angry Birds c) sleep in d) enjoy summer.
Hardly worth searching through classified ads for, wouldn’t you say?
Now perhaps you’re the more industrious type. For those of us motivated by cash, a summer job presents the opportunity to: a) gain work experience b) make new friends c) learn a new skill d) put something else on your resume e) make money f) get out of the house.
Whatever way you slice it, though, you can’t deny that searching for a summer job isn’t really all that much fun. You’re busy enough with exams and prom (and trying to master Angry Birds in Space)—how are you supposed to find just the right job at just the right time, on top of everything else?
