Make the Most of Your Summer

Finals are burning you out and all you can think about are those summer days just weeks away that you'll be spending in the sun or laying around at home. Yes, a few naps and freedom from deadlines is well deserved, enjoy it! But are you really going to spend all those months hanging around?

As a college student, you should be exploring your options and embracing your ambitious goals and dreams. Look for a summer job or internship, make the most of your days outside of the classroom.

Make the effort to find a job in a field you have an interest in, not just a mind-numbing afternoon buffer to get you off the couch. If you are interested in an internship, make sure you can get college credit for it if it's not paid. Don't sign up for "experience" alone.

I personally used this site, to find internships and jobs in fields I may want to work in down the road. Remember, you don't have to work specifically in a field you're studying in school! Be curious!

Here are some other sites you may want to check out that were suggested on the Huffington Post:
