Anywhere recruiting for summer jobs now?

Thought i would ask you lot on here, as the employers who told me I had a job appear to be trying to screw me over!!

I used to hate getting summer jobs at uni so much. You don't have any specific skills so there seem to be very few places who'll take you on even though you are almost certainly as competent as the people they eventually hire.

Sadly, no advice to offer as the jobs I used to get were certainly unenviable until I had done my placement year.

Why should an employer pay a student a decent wage for a summer job if they are only going to be working for three months?

Yeh exactly, thought i had found a good job, told I had the job, and that they would have openings soon (this was 4 weeks ago, as i came home for the interview), an they are currently still waiting for those openings!!
