You may be wondering why I'm posting about job hunting. Apparently it has nothing to do with college admissions. However, the information in this article is equally applicable for not only college graduates but also high school students looking for summer work. These days, summer jobs, which can be a key piece of profile information for college applicants, are becoming increasingly hard to find and the competition is keener than ever.
So, I'm trying here to combine some key information that can aid those about to head out into the "real" world and those about to head into the unreal (ivory-tower-like) world of higher education. While I can probably come up with some even worse job-hunting mistakes (maybe in a future post), I'll stick with these for now, since they appear to make a lot of sense.
