As school comes to a close and summer starts, many students look into getting a job if they don't already have one. With desires for money, relationships, and connections, many students have gone out into Mashpee’s local businesses seeking employment.
This summer, many businesses that remained closed last summer are starting to open back up. With COVID regulations lifted, many places are starting to get back to normal. The restrictions due to the pandemic were lifted in Massachusetts at the end of May, which means that places no longer have the strict limits that they did previously. As people look ahead at the jobs scene this summer, has anything changed, or have most things remained the same?
Seven Mashpee Middle-High School students were asked about where they work and eleven jobs were named. While many students only work one job, many work two different jobs, splitting their time between working, and being with friends. Some of these places included restaurants, retail stores and athletic clubs. Many of these places are located in Mashpee Commons and in New Seabury.
