The summer job hunt for students has been dismal. In the current state of the economy, only a lucky few have been able to find positions related to their degree. If you are desperate, the Gauntlet has compiled a list of positions still for hire.

Wage and benefits: Our summer students are paid on a grant basis, details of which we have yet to receive. Maybe $1500.00 over the duration of the summer? Maybe a nice reference letter? Your guess is as good as ours.
Intern for Big Business® Inc.
