What is your child doing this summer? That is the biggest question that parents ask each other this time of year when we get together. And for a college kid these days, it is a loaded question.
Unfortunately, these days paying jobs are almost impossible to find and unpaid “internships” are equally as difficult to find. It seems that you have to start almost a year in advance to secure one. So what’s a college kid to do? Being a camp counselor or lifeguard is still a viable option. And lots of kids seem to take summer classes to help them graduate on time. Then there are travel or summer internship programs away from home.
