Do you need to find a summer job?  You're in luck because there is good news to report.  The summer job market for 2012 is going to be one of the best ones in quite a while.

Bill Berg, President and Founder of CoolWorks.com, the top site for seasonal jobs, says "What we're seeing at Cool Works is that there are more opportunities for job seekers to grab some jobs in great places this summer."

Bill also says "It's been an employer's market for a few years but with the increased summer job postings to our site over the last two months, it's feeling more and more like a job seeker's market for the 2012 summer season.  And for those who have a strong guest service background with mid-level management experience, seasonal jobs can turn into year-round positions."
