Do summer jobs count as work experience?
Since I've been in college, I have only been able to work summer jobs. I was an athlete and never really had the chance to work except in the summer. How would you calculate just a few months of work...Do you put it down as 1 year?

Yes, it counts. Be sure to note it as a "summer job" so the short duration won't raise a red flag. For that matter: unpaid volunteer work counts, too.
