Whether your summer job was career-launching, fun or just different, it’s likely that the experience helped shape who you are today. Everyone who’s had one knows summer jobs are great opportunities to uncover or polish job skills, begin to build a network and maybe most important truly discover your passions and interests.

For many, a summer job is a gateway to a career. For others, they are a financial necessity.
