Workin’ for the weekend: jobs and internships

It’s that time of year again — essays, midterms, apartment hunting and most of all, the job search.

This week’s Campus Life section is a combination of highlights on things related to summer jobs: where to look, how to find them and how to enjoy your summer while you’re bringing in the bucks or making contacts.

Obviously, most of us would prefer to spend our summers on a beach somewhere sipping piña coladas, but hey — we’re not all contestants on Paradise Hotel. Nor can we afford to spend our months of academic freedom wasting away and pilfering the little coin we have left.

On that note, we’ve decided to compile some information to remind you that not all summer jobs are excruciatingly painful or boring, but many can be exciting and provide great contacts in your field for potential post-graduation careers.

Though some of us have to work for cash, there are also those lucky few who can afford to spend a summer working for free. Internships are a great way to spend your time doing something you’re actually interested in. Although you often have to start at the very bottom and work your way up, the experience and benefits of an internship can be second to none.

Whatever you plan to do this summer, Campus Life is here to help you on your way.

Caves, silver, flashlights — while the natural association would perhaps lead to thinking of those loveable Fraggles, that was the reality of my summer job for five years.

Sell yourself to the man for free

Imagine slaving away all day without getting paid a cent for your hard work. Sound crazy? Hundreds of students do it every summer and guess what? They enjoy it.

Resumés 101: tips and tricks

It’s that time of year again, when students everywhere are dusting off their resumés to begin the search for a summer job. Before you make a few changes and print off that trustworthy resumé, it may be time to realize the resumé you used to score your first McJob may not cut it after high school. Here are some tips to revamping the good ol’ resumé:

Snazzy summer job options

As the end of another school year approaches, thoughts of blissful summer evenings spent on the cottage dock come to mind. Unfortunately, for most of us summer is not all fun and games — we need to find some way to pay for our education and at least a few drinks along the way.
