That’s not all though, career fairs are around all the time and taking advantage of those could be a life changer. I was just looking for a fun summer job being a raft guide and it turned out the company I was applying to could also offer me an internship with the Pennsylvania Department of conservation and Natural Resources.
Government intervention in the food industry is not without precedent. There is already regulation in some schools, for example, to remove sugared drinks and salty products. As a result, a lot of large companies, like PepsiCo, are spending money on improving food and drink products.
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.
TIP: Mom and dad found the best baking days and shopped early in the morning. We loved going with them because most of the time the bread was still warm and the aroma was unbelievable. Fresh-bread grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup to this day is still my favorite comfort food.
I took a chance looking up what a school district had to offer for jobs. My image of a school was that it was only for teachers, cooks, and custodians.

I was amazed at what I found.

The idea is that if everyone does it at once, taste buds will adjust and everyone will become healthier. It sounds simple enough, but turns out to be a rather thorny issue.
Now it is up to us millennials to go out and start job hunting. Maybe take a little more of the burden off of our parents. No one should give up the freedom of a life on their own, paving their own way just because of some hard economic times. So when it comes time start digging for a career after graduation use the resources available to their fullest extent. For instance the career center at the school your attending probably has excellent services to offer. While they can help also do some active research of your own and maybe even call potential employers or send in a resume.
Sometimes the hardest story to tell is your own. Writing your own resume is hard for most experienced adults! You have the added challenge of learning who you are first, and then putting it on paper. No small feat for recent grads. Usually what I see are resumes that either include everything but the kitchen sink, or barely anything that’s employer-worthy.
