Julia Armigo waited three weeks before she heard back about a summer job. She had applied to many companies before Peter's Weston Market hired her two months ago.
"I applied to a lot of places. It's hard because we have to compete with students coming back from colleges," said Julia, a sophomore at Weston High School. She said about 15 high school students work at Peter's and others work at The Lunch Box or Caraluzzi's.
"When I applied at The Lunch Box, they said they had a line of people waiting to work there. They're swamped," said Julia.
Taylor Ellis, a junior at Weston High School, said many students work at the Snack Shack at Stamford Yacht Club or at surrounding towns' field clubs.
The Weston Parks and Recreation department offers high school and college students an opportunity to work at the summer camps and as lifeguards at Bisceglie Pond.
