Summer Jobs

Finding a summer job doesn't have to mean trudging from store to store in the heat, watching your application get dropped atop a three-inch-tall stack of earlier applications. And working a summer job doesn't have to mean consigning yourself to three months of pumping gas, unclogging soft-serve machines, or telling people for the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth times that day that you don't have that shirt in their size. Check out some of these listings, and land yourself a summer job that's even more fun than spending the summer at the beach.
