Tips to heat up your summer job search BOSTON, MA -- Depending on your search goals, you might have better opportunities presented because of the summer season. Here are some ways to tailor your job search activity for the summer: Make scheduling time to meet with you as easy as possible. Summer is already tough on the employer side because vacation schedules need to be considered. To make yourself readily available, always carry an updated calendar with you; sync your phone with your main computer if you keep calendars in different places.

Take advantage of the nice weather with outdoor networking meetings. Propose outdoor networking meetings to take advantage of the warm weather. Reconnect with lost networking contacts by asking about vacation plans or sharing exciting plans of your own - the conversation may turn back to business but in the meantime at least you've kept in touch. Go for summer internships. Many companies offer a summer internship program to take advantage of the off season for students. But with more of the workforce now in freelance and temporary roles, experienced professionals should consider tapping into summer opportunities for their own employment prospects.

Regardless of where you are in your job search, summer is still a good time to keep your job search active and make progress. Check in regularly with whomever is coordinating your interviews; give them lots of availability and keep them posted if other prospective employers are moving faster than they are.
