Summer Jobs

HedgeFundLIVE.com –  According to CNN money.com, there will be more summer jobs available and they will also pay better. This is great news for high school an young college students looking to make good money and get great work experience. Ten percent of hiring managers said they will be hiring more seasonal staff than last summer, up from 6% in 2010. Hiring managers said they plan to pay out $10.90 an hour, on average, a 7% increase over last summer’s $10.20. However, this also means that there is going to be a lot of competition. Also, managers want to get all their hiring done by April so that once the summer begins their employees can hit the ground running. The most important factors that employers are looking at are abilities, work schedules, and positive attitudes. I know some of us are applying for internships and looking for jobs and I thought this would be helpful.
