You're so busy with classes (and a rockin' social life), you can't seem to get ahead in the finance field. Sure, summer might be a great time to soak up some sun for those college students who are lucky enough NOT to be struggling with student loans, car payments, credit card bills, etc. But for a large majority of us, summer is the time to keep working our asses off... and get paid.
