Summer Jobs are hard to find

Its not long ago, when every student was having hard time choosing which summer job to take and companies were falling over each other to offer best possible summer job incentives. In a year, which has seen the worst recession India has seen so far, summer jobs have almost vanished.

Times of India reports, "Money isn't quite the deciding factor this year for most. In reality, very few companies seem to be hiring for summer jobs even." Even if few companies are taking in summer trainees, they are not offering any stipend. If one is able to find some place to work as summer trainee he/she is definitely a fortunate one as in these times of slowdown, summer jobs are going to be means to fill up the work experience slot in CVs.

Best way to find a summer job is "network". Use all possible means through your own network of friends and family to find a summer job. Most of the summer jobs are filled by reference, so don't leave any leaf unturned this season to find one and who knows this summer job may be passport for your next big job!
