Tips on getting a summer job

As high school students, it is hard to find good jobs, especially during the summer. Most places aren’t hiring anymore or want more experienced workers. So here is a bit of help to get a summer job.

First off let’s get something straight–Lagoon is not the only option! Don’t just work at lagoon because you think you can’t get a job anywhere else.

Look for ‘help wanted’ signs when you drive around and don’t be afraid to call or just walk in to ask if they’re hiring. The worst that could happen is they say no.

Even if it isn’t your perfect or ideal job, just try it. You need the money anyway and you might actually enjoy it.

If you get an interview, dress business casual. For girls, wear black slacks and a blouse. For boys, wear black slacks and a button up shirt. Just wear something nice in general. You want to show the person interviewing you that you are taking the opportunity of the job seriously.

Remember to highlight your qualities and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Hiring leaders always appreciate when you aren’t afraid to ask questions about the business or the job position itself.

Also remember to keep your personal life out of the interview unless the job requires some of that information.

Hopefully these tips help you guys get out there and get summer jobs! Just be confident in yourself and you’ll do great.
