Classic summer jobs—at camps, beach town burger joints, and amusement parks—that are open for only a few months annually are still a good bet.

"About half are returnees, but the rest are new. As long as kids can follow through with the online application process, and convey that they are confident, passionate, and fun people, we're interested."
