Photos can be tweeted or posted to Instagram with the #MySummerJob

Scooping ice cream? Working as a camp counselor? Interning at a high-tech startup?

Education Week is asking students on Twitter and Instagram to post photos of themselves at work in their summer jobs, starting Wednesday, June 3, 2015, to give a snapshot of what their work life is like in the months when school is out.

We encourage educators to join in as well by sharing pictures and memories from their summer jobs as teens.

We ask that students and educators tweet or post to Instagram with the hashtag #MySummerJob. Please include a brief description of your job.

We will curate the images and create a photo gallery to showcase the variety of jobs that youths and educators across the United States are holding down this summer. We may feature selected images in the pages of Education Week.
