Summer is the ideal time to look for a job related to your program of study. Most students take the summer off from classes and have a flexible work schedule. Why not look for a position where you can apply your classroom learning to a real job.
Often when I meet with students and ask them where they are interested in working, I hear about the big companies in Michigan. Names like Ford, GM, Quicken Loans, Google and Compuware regularly get tossed in to the conversation.
