Hundreds of Okanagan students are feeling the pressure to find a summer job.
For one student, this provides an opportunity to not just find a job, but make one.
This year, local university student Ryan Beach has become the owner of the Student Works painting company in Vernon.
Student Works provides Beach with all of the necessary supplies and tools needed to succeed in creating a company from scratch.
“There are a lot of preparations to get everything ready,” said Beach, a business management student.
While furthering his education, Beach provides other students with summer employment.
“It feels good to run my own company and give other students a chance to work and take part in business operations as well.”
Beach is currently looking for more employees to join his team as painters and marketers.
