No essays to write, no reports to hand in, no tests to stress out over. Yep, for the next two months, it’s sunshine, relaxation and oh yeah… time to find a summer job.
Although it may not be the most fantastic way to spend the school break, a summer job is a great way to earn money, get work experience and learn a little bit more about what you might want to do (or not do) as career when you finish school for good.
The Calgary Public Library has many resources that can help you find employment this summer. Be sure to take a look at a few from our E-Library and Answers Online:
Career Cruising: an excellent online resource with career matchmaking tests and job profiles.
Nextsteps.org: A website geared specifically towards finding work in Calgary. Includes resume writing tips, interviews with people working here in Calgary and answers to frequently asked questions.
. . . And don't miss the great career books we’ve got in our collection! Try the ones below!
