6 hot summer jobs in a tight market
Summer may mean that young students no longer need to suffer the indignities of teachers, books or dirty looks, but they'll still need to be under the watchful eye of a caregiver.
Since mom and dad are typically still working, nannies, "mannies" and baby sitters are always in high demand. Laura Davis, an owner of College Nannies & Tutors franchises in three states, says she hires hundreds of young men and women each year for summer jobs.
Care.com uses its network developed with 3,000 local colleges to connect families with caregivers at universities across the country. Better yet, if you can line up work with the right family, you'll snare a gig where "work" consists of taking kids to the beach, the baseball stadium and a water park.
