Summers Coming! Do you have your job yet??

OK- I know the weather outside is frightful but the time to start thinking about what you are going to do with your time this summer starts NOW!!!!! It is never to early to start looking for that "dream" summer gig! The really good places to work start hiring in March so if you don't want to hang out with your parents all summer playing x-box and getting yelled at cause you didn't feed the dog, mow the grass, or take out the garbage you better get off your doopa and get job hunting!
But Brenner, "where do I start you say?" Well like all good job hunters you start at the computer! First make sure you have a resume. Make sure your resume includes any experience you have along with any extra curricular activities. Once your resume is perfected start looking for companies that need interns! Other great places for a summer gig include: Amusement Parks, Summer Camps, The Medina County Park System, Medina County Transportation Dept., Public Swimming pools, and recreation departments. Once you find opportunities start practicing your interview skills, speak clearly, have good eye contact, have a nice solid handshake, smile, and ask questions!!! Also, don't be afraid to contact your wonderful JOG teacher for help!!! That's what we are here for!!! Well-Good Luck out there!! Brenner Out!
