Get started early
It is worth starting a summer job hunt at the beginning of the year. Most of our summer jobs are published in February.

Be active
Do not have mum or dad ask for a job for you. Be bold and walk up to the retailer – a genuine interest always creates good vibes.

Personal touch
Invest in your job application. Let it show your personality and tell the reader why you want just the job in question. A good job application is personal and to-the-point and it shows that you know the facts about the job you are applying for. Make a brisk impression and deliver the application in person. Remember a firm handshake, a positive attitude and eye contact. Give the contact person a call later and ask when decisions will be made. If you just rely on online communication, you will be easy to forget.
