Student “Surfs” in Summer Career


For many high schoolers, summer is the time where they decide to take on a job. Mikayla Robinson, a rising junior, currently works at Surfin’ Yogurt in Pierpont. Robinson said that, “buying a car and having gas money,” inspired her to take on the job.

Discussing her job at Surfin’ Yogurt, Robinson said, “my favorite part of working is that my friends come in and visit me.” “My least favorite part about working there is dealing with customers who cause problems,” she added.

When suggesting job-searching high schoolers apply to various businesses, Robinson also suggested only applying to places students are interested in working at. Believing it teaches responsibility and provides experiences for future working opportunities, Robinson thinks that her fellow students would benefit from high school jobs.
