It’s not too early to apply for that summer job
High school and college students, take note: Summer job hiring has already begun and the jobs may be gone before your school lets out. Snagajob did the researchand it turns out that 74 percent of companies that plan to hire summer workers intend to have that hiring done by the end of May and 7 percent have already filled their summer job slots.
But, summer jobs won’t be limited to the people off school. High unemployment rates mean that you’ll be competing against older and more experienced job candidates as well. Forty four percent of employers say that the more experienced crowd will be stiff competition for the students on summer break. This doesn’t mean students don’t stand a chance, though. They do. In fact, summer job hiring managers expect 78 percent of their hires to be inexperienced.
