When should I start looking for a summer position only?

Summer jobs can be competitive especially if you are gunning for the big names in the cities. You should ideally start looking the preceding fall semester to take full advantage of all resources at your disposal. For example – if you want to apply for a summer position in 2018, you should start looking for the fall semester of 2017. You should begin early to get a head start on your choices. The extra time will help you gather more information about your possible position and your coursework. This will help you make a schedule to help you juggle work and study.
