Summer Job or Summer School

Posted: Updated:

Summer is a time for being out in the sun, swimming, and other fun activities.

It can also bring more job opportunities and even more school for teens.

Stephanie Scheurer has the details.

It's no secret that North Dakota's economy is still booming.

Job Service North Dakota says currently in Burleigh and Morton Counties alone, there are nearly 3,500 job openings.

"They run the gamut from truck driver, to retail, to restaurant, hotels, like we were just talking about teacher openings. You know, every industry, every occupation is being affected by what's happening in North Dakota," says Phil Davis, Customer Service Area Manager, Job Service ND.

Now that we're in the summer season, employers are recruiting young teens.

"Fifteen year olds are wonderful employees for us because they mostly work the weekends and they can't work nighttime hours and stuff so you just fill in where you need to fill in," says Denny Sotebeer, Owner of McDonald's.

Standup: "With all of the now hiring signs around town, it's easy for teens to find work. But some prefer an alternative."

"Summer school, it does take in to a chunk of their day. Plus, we do about a week pace a day, so the kids always have homework and so really it's probably an eight to two commitment, you know, I would say with the homework put into it. Makes it harder for them to have an outside job," says Tana Sukauskas, English Teacher.

Ashlee has taken summer school every year since she was in ninth grade.

But despite being busy with school and homework, she still manages to juggle a job on the side.

"I work every day so, yeah it gets really rushy rushy," says Ashlee Luptak, Junior.

While the demand for workers could be pulling students away from taking summer school or vise versa, it all comes down to what serves you best.

In Bismarck, Stephanie Scheurer, KX News.
