The number of employers hiring summer workers is expected to rise to 29% this year from 22% during the 2008-11 period, according to CareerBuilder, an ASA corporate partner. The job market remains competitive, with Brent Rasmussen, president of CareerBuilder North America, noting, “High school students are not only competing with college students for summer positions, they’re also competing with very seasoned workers who are looking for a way to get their foot in the door and transition to full-time, permanent employment.” Rasmussen says production line associates, warehouse assistants, sales clerks, customer service representatives, finance interns, engineers, and information technology specialists are among the jobs available this year.
