Whether you're looking for a summer job or are simply job-hunting during the warmer months, it pays to think beyond the traditional standbys like lifeguard or amusement-park attendant, both of which have a median pay of less than $10 an hour. A better bet is to seek employment in industries that operate year-round but see a boost in clientele and responsibility during the summer, such as wedding- and vacation- related occupations, says a new report issued by online salary database PayScale.com.
