Now that school’s out and the next ACT test isn’t until September, you may be left wondering what there is to do this summer. Especially if you’re happy with your ACT score and don’t plan to take it again. While it may seem like spending the summer sleeping in and doing a whole bunch of nothing in addition to just having fun, the summer is a great opportunity to start adding to your experiences outside of school if you haven’t already.
If you’re a High School Senior (starting this Fall) and have yet to work any sort of job or internship, I implore you to pick up a part time or even full time job this summer. If possible, find something related to what you’re interested in doing as an adult. If you’re unsure what you want to do, feel free to find any decent paying job for the summer that you feel you’ll enjoy.
When I was in high school, I worked part time as a Kennel Assistant at a local animal hospital since I had plans to study Animal Science/ Veterinary Medicine in college. Having this experience helped me land other jobs throughout my college and after-college experience. It even helped me build a great, comprehensive resume.
