If you haven't scored a summer job yet, it's not too late to look. According to Fox Business, employers may still be hiring for the season, so don't give up hope.

"Some employers may need more workers than they expected; others may have delayed hiring; and some may have discovered that one or more of those hired early were not a good fit," said John A. Challenger, chief executive of global outplacement consultancy at Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc.
According to the business site, last year was the weakest summer job market in decades, but there are good opportunities to be had this year. Challenger says teens should try applying for jobs at privately-owned companies, rather than in the public sector. Parks, public swimming pools and beaches "are likely to cut back on seasonal hiring," he said.

"The key to success for late-to-the-game teen job seekers will be an aggressive approach," Challenger adds. "Today's tech-savvy teenagers are apt to conduct 90% of their job search on the Internet and submit applications online. However, nothing beats actually walking into a business, introducing yourself to the manager and asking about job opportunities."

So, keep your head up high and be resourceful. Check out more tips on how to score a summer job here.
