The summer vacation, while sometimes reserved for summer lovin’ and fun in the sun, is also a prime time to earn some extra cash and learn valuable lessons about hard work and responsibility.
To find some of the highest-paying summer jobs college students can do, Business Insider asked FlexJobs, an online service specializing in telecommuting and remote work, to scour its site for some of the best-paying summer and seasonal job listings.
