But, does that mean it is a good time to pack your bags or sit on the beach all summer and just wait for things to improve? I bet you can guess my answer! NO WAY.
Trina Thompson sued her college because she couldn’t get a job after graduation. She graduated with a 2.7 gpa, and after 3 months she had not yet landed a job during a terrible recession. So she blamed the school’s career center for not procuring her dream job for her.
I had to help prepare a Valentine’s Day Dinner at the church and stayed all snug in bed. I prayed for their safety and his health. The roads were to get bad over the day. I figured I had a couple of hours to sleep in. Everything was under control. Never be too sure of that.
Another idea for student jobs is to try work study. Most work study positions are tied to financial aid but often you can find something that is in your major. Check with your financial aid office if you have applied and see if this is one possibility.
Pau Gasol. The Spanish center is truly versatile, with his smooth style improving everyone around him.

A team that would typically make the first or second round of the playoffs instantly won a championship once they acquired Gasol.
We were able to bring him home and coddle him in a couple of hours. We were very relieved. We were extremely grateful that it wasn’t serious. He is a wrestler and has a high pain tolerance. When he is in pain we know that he is really in pain. He said that the chest pains were so severe he felt like he had the wind knocked out of him.

Network with your neighbors. Seventy to eighty percent of jobs are found through networking, so get out there and talk to the people you know.

Most people are happy to offer some suggestions-or, even better, a hot lead.
Prepare yourself with questions about your old job. Whether you were laid off or left on your own free will, have answers prepared for interviewers as to why you left your previous place of work. If you got laid off, don’t lie.
