AF: Some of the best summer jobs can be found at your college or university. For example, you could work in the dorms as a resident assistant, or help troubleshoot computers as an IT tech. If you’re more of an outdoorsy type, you could join a landscaping crew. It’s tough work, but you’ll spend the summer in the sunshine.
