3 things to remember when you're looking for a summer job


Waiting ‘til school is out to find a part-time summer gig will leave ya scraping the bottom of the barrel for a bit of spending moolah. Now’s the time to begin the search, but before you do, here are three things to keep in mind when ya apply, interview and say Y-E-S.

 

Just because they know you’re a teenager doesn’t mean you have to look and act like one

Dress maturely and conservatively both when you go to pick up/drop off your application and when you interview. You don’t need to be in a suit for most jobs, but wearing clean, pressed slacks or khakis and a neat button down shirt or blouse will make a good first impression. Stand up straight with your shoulders back, walk with purpose instead of shuffling and dragging your feet, and speak clearly, eliminating “like” and “um” when you can.

 

Memorizing the basics will make you appear more mature

You’re old enough to know your own schedule, summer plans and personal information, like your social security number. Having these things down will make you look independent, like an adult rather than a child. Remember, many summer jobs hire based on timing—there are lots of applicants that can do the job well. Not having to call them back with pertinent details could be the different between getting the gig and not.

 

Not everything will be puppies and unicorns

No matter if you’re working as a camp counselor or life guard or barista, there are going to be parts of the job that are gross or boring or unpleasant. You will probably have to clean bathrooms and deal with unruly customers—and you’re gonna have to do it well, no matter how much you dislike the work. Do everything with a polite smile on your face, and don’t think you’re better than the task at hand. Everyone goes through this. It’s called paying your dues.
