Last week we inquired as to how the number of summer jobs available at our reader's operation or office compared to last year. We thought the trend would be downward due to the bleak economic situation of the past nine months, and we were right.
Of the respondents, 43% indicated that were significantly fewer opportunities. Taken together with the 10% who noted there were a few less jobs and the 14% who said there were none this year, two out of three readers said there were fewer openings.
