There really is a difference in summer jobs. Just as when I painted for College Craft during my college years, College Craft continues to stand alone in offering students the best training, the best support, the best advancement opportunities and the best pay.
We ask for a serious commitment in return: we ask that each employee be honest, learn our systems, work hard every week of their summer break, and we ask that each employee strives for advancement.
I strongly believe that a summer job with College Craft is the most meaningful employment experience available for today's students.
