My Take - Summer Employment

As we head into the summer months, high school and college students find themselves with time on their hands. While vacations are great it's important for young people to use their time wisely.  Summer jobs, internships even volunteering for a non-profit can be the best way to invest in your own future.  Remember it's not just about  making  money over the summer months.  If you are able to get solid skills that may relate to a future career you may be better off if the long run.  Experience along with education is something every potential employer is looking for. To employers, hiring young people during their summer breaks can be a good investment in the future of your company. For a relatively small summertime investment, you get to learn the work ethic of a temporary employee.  Then when it's time to hire a full time employee after graduation, you already know that this could be a star employee; making your investment well worth it. I'm Vanessa Oubre that's "My Take" what's yours?
