Summer Job: Selling Time Shares

Eileen Powers has been listening to our series of summer jobs and she decided to write in and tell us about hers. One hot June night in 1988, Eileen and a friend decided there had to be more to summer than sitting at home in New York City watching QVC. So they hopped in the car and headed to Cape Cod. After days of trolling for jobs at every restaurant and hotel they knew, the two girls saw an ad in the newspaper for "tour guides." Eileen ended up selling questionable time shares. She talks with Dick about why that summer job is one she'll never forget.
