If you are planning to find a summer job this year, think about what you want your co-workers and supervisors to say about you when the summer is over.
Here are two things you DON'T want employers to say about you when your summer job ends:
- You were rude to customers, co-workers or your supervisor. Show respect to everyone you meet on the job, you don't know who you might meet again or want to write you a letter of recommendation.
- You were late all the time or not dependable. Try to manage your time this summer and remember that your employer is relying on you to show up as scheduled.
