Summer jobs are a rite of passage for teens, who have a new resource when looking for work: the Burnet Chamber of Commerce’s student job board. The board is open to all area teens and lists openings across the Highland Lakes complete with job descriptions and contact information.
“This is a way we could connect students and businesses looking for summer help,” said Allison McKee, the chamber’s executive director. “It’s a way to bridge the gap since we didn’t think we’d get enough kids to come to a job fair.”
