Want A Summer Job that Makes a Difference?

Students: Think seriously about getting a summer job/internships that “does good”. There are many opportunities in your community to roll up your sleeves and tackle environmental problems, help underprivileged children, clean up your city, etc. These types of experiences provide great opportunities on which to base your college application essay. However, it’s important that you start looking for a job right now, since there will be a lot of competition for these jobs. For example, in Canada, “the unemployment rate for full-time students ages 17 to 19 grew from 13.2% in August 2008 to 16.5% in August 2009 before a slight drop to 15.8% in August 2011 (http://tinyurl.com/75vtfjo).
