This way, I built my resume and gained experience in fields that I wanted to pursue in college. My freshman summer I worked as a sailing instructor at my local yacht club; I'd recommend trying to find a similar job around your area. My sophomore summer I looked around my neighborhood and emailed some quite successful people. One of them responded offering me...
