This is the first time I will need to find a summer job. I should clarify: this isn't my first job, it's just that I've always been employed year round and had my hours modified during the summer; I've never had to get a job specifically for summer. I guess what I don't understand is how I intimate my intentions to the employer. Why would an employer be willing to hire me if I'm obviously leaving at the end of August? Are the chances of me being hired by some place that might make use of my technical/machining/mechanical skills remote?
