Even though the economy is improving, the job market still is going to be tight this summer for those looking for seasonal work. According to CareerBuilder's annual Summer Job Forecast, about one-in-five employers (21 percent) reported that they plan to hire seasonal workers this summer, which is about on par with last year, and you remember how tough it was then.

The good news is that more than half (57 percent) of those employers said that they will be considering some summer hires for permanent positions.
