Summertime for the incoming juniors at Seattle Prep meant, for many, finding their first jobs. From being a lifeguard at a local swim club to scooping ice cream on those hot summer days, the juniors seem to have done it all.

Junior Liam McNett spent his summer at the Gregory Seahurst Swim Club in Burien. He worked as the assistant coach for swim teams with kids from ages four to ten. As the assistant coach, he would encourage the kids at their meets and daily practices, as well as prepare the lineups. McNett enjoyed his first job of training the kids to swim because he loved “passing on an activity and team that has been such a big part of my life onto younger kids.”

Issy de Suduiraut ’19 chose to get a sweet job at Baskin Robbins on the eastside this past summer, where she scooped ice cream, made milkshakes, and decorated cakes. De Suduiraut passed out frozen treats to the kids and adults of all ages during one of the driest times Seattle has ever experienced. The hot summer brought in a lot of customers desperate for a cold scoop of ice cream. She recommends working at an ice cream shop next summer for those who want a fun and people-oriented job, as “it teaches you a lot of people management skills and how to deal with difficult customers.”

Grace Nenke ’19 spent her 3 months away from school as a nanny for two kids on Capitol Hill. A typical day for Nenke involved making creative crafts and playing board games with the kids. Nenke loved entertaining the kids by taking them on adventures to the park and the Woodland Park Zoo. She also appreciated how flexible the parents were with her busy summer schedule and how she was able to choose the days/hours she worked. She thought of it as “a fun way to earn money while still having manageable hours and time to do homework.”

After an exciting summer of first jobs, it’s back to late night studying and cramming in service hours for the juniors. However, next summer may provide new opportunities to make money and add to the resume!
