DENVER (CNN) - There is some encouraging news for people hoping to pick up a summer job this year: More jobs will be available this year, and they'll pay better.
According to a survey from job site Snagajob.com, 55 percent of managers said the plan to hire seasonal staff.
Those lucky enough to score a summer job will likely be paid better, as well. Hiring managers expect to pay employees $10.90 an hour on average, which is a 7 percent increase from last summer.
Those interested in the jobs are advised to act quickly. Employers expect to have their summer openings filled by April.
