Need A Summer Job?

Yes, it is a cold and wintry January but it is not too early to start looking for your summer job. The City of London advertised their 2008 summer jobs last November. Other government postings will be available soon. Many large companies also start looking for their summer students in the winter or early spring.

Want to do an effective job search? Here is a check-list of things to start thinking about:

  • what kind of job do you want - employers like people who know what they want and know what they can do
  • prepare your resume - a good resume takes a lot of work; write it now and be ready to submit it as postings become available
  • make a list of companies you want to contact and research them - employers are impressed with job searchers who know something about the company

What jobs will be available for summer 2008? Check out these websites:
