Take a temporary summer job
Contractors and temps are often in high demand during the summer to cover for leaves and vacations. If you are unemployed, consider taking a contract gig for the summer while you look for full-time employment. For college students, or other professionals who have permanent jobs starting in September, consider a short-term assignment to keep you working – especially in case your full-time offer gets rescinded. Thankfully this doesn’t happen often, but CPA and law firms have been known on occasion to pull offers from incoming graduates. Better to be working, even part time, than not at all.
