Now is the time to land your summer job!

Abridged: Huffington Post

CHICAGO, IL — Think summer jobs are just for kids? Well … think again! The seasonal job market has opened up to applicants of all ages as many employers welcome job-seekers with a mature work ethic and well-honed communication skills. In addition to seasonal work, part-time and/or temporary, contract positions are more plentiful during the summer as organizations scramble to cover for their vacationing employees.

If you land a part-time position in your line of work — at a company where you’d like to be employed — your chances of being brought on full time are good. In addition to the increased job options that the summer provides, your opportunities to mix and mingle are greatly enhanced by the warm weather. Backyard parties, gatherings, and community events abound and are prime venues to “meet and greet” and get the word out about all you have to offer.

There’s one big, additional benefit to having a summer job and actively building your list of contacts. The larger your network, the better you will position yourself for the surge of full-time employment opportunities that usually takes place in September and October. So get out there, make yourself known, and present yourself as the knowledgeable, enthusiastic candidate you are. You never know whom you might meet and where such opportunities might lead. And, come early fall, you just might find yourself happily employed in the full-time position you’ve wanted all along!
