INDIANAPOLIS - As the temperatures rise, employers are cranking up the hiring process for seasonal workers.
According to local experts, the economy for seasonal workers has improved over the past few years, allowing employers to be able to hire more people this summer, mainly teens.
Seth Watkins, 19, has a pretty cool summer job.
"I'm a gondolier on the canal (in) downtown Indianapolis and this is my second season," Watkins said.
This year, he has recruited his twin sister who had been looking for summer work.
"(Seth) asked me to come in one day to be a shadow and his boss hired me right on the spot," Sarah Watkins said.
Another popular job for seasonal workers is at the Indianapolis Zoo where the hiring process has already kicked up, even though school isn't out yet.
Zoo spokeswoman Judy Palermo said that some jobs are geared specifically towards teens.
"The jobs are there. I know that if you're talking about college students coming home or teenagers, we do have some things for them, including ride operators and ticket takers," Palermo said.
According to U.S. labor statistics, summer employment rose 13 percent last year from 2012, and the trend is expected to continue.
Meanwhile, officials with the Indiana Youth Institute said retail, hospitality, and leisure sectors are expanding, meaning more jobs to fill.
