Calling all Chicago students, if you’re looking for a summer job, why not take a look at picturesque Mackinac Island?
It is situated in Lake Huron between Michigan’s Upper and Lower peninsulas and their small businesses are on the lookout for summer staff.
As reported by CBS Chicago, Andrew Doud, the owner of Doud’s Market and The Mackinac House hotel said “We go from a community of about 500 people in the winter to ramping up to a workforce of about 4,000 people in the summer – and that’s from housekeeping to waiters, cooks, bartenders, deli managers, butchers.”
A World Away From Chicago-Life
Students be warned, Mackinac Island is a world away from life in Chicago. For instance, you won’t find speeding cars or chain restaurants – instead, you’ll encounter horse-drawn carriages, historic forts, and unbelievable views.
For some that might sound horrible, for others, it could be the break you need this summer.
During his interview, Andrew Doud said “Mackinac is a unique destination,” and that “the natural beauty of Mackinac, I think, is second to none.” Looking at the video below, we definitely agree.
