With summer jobs more plentiful than they have been in the past few years, an increasing number of adults and retirees have begun working during the 'off season'.
As experience has become even more important to hiring managers and corporations, that may not have training budgets or time to train, adult workers are a great resource for seasonal help.
For those adults looking to keep busy, do something different, or earn a little extra cash at a second job, a summer job may just be the answer. Of course, summer jobs are an American staple for many teenagers and recent grads, so make sure to pass the information along!
