Summer is almost here and that means students are looking for work.

"I am a senior in high school right now but I hope to get a job in an office this summer. That might be hard so I would be willing to work in a restaurant or a retail store. I just need to get a job so I can get some experience," said Raquel Faison.

"For me summer has always been about going to the beach to work on my tan. But this summer I plan to buckle down and look for work. I need to start making money," said Jorge Perez, a college student.

"I hope I can find a job. I have some background in retail but the market can be tough, especially for younger people. I will do whatever job I can find and I will work hard," said Kristine Hearn.

Finding a first job is always hard. But those who preserve can enjoy success.
