The March Towards the End: Finding the Right Job for the Summer

Throw away the sunscreen, wash those sandy towels, and put the books back in those backpacks, because Spring Break is over. Not to worry, though! Easter Break is right around the corner, and right around the corner from that? Summer. We’re in the home stretch, and school is finally approaching the end.

For some of you, it’s off to internships and jobs, ready to start a new adventure. For others, you’re still in that difficult stage – the waiting period. Waiting for our chance to prove how valuable we are, and get some real-world experience. Stay hopeful! You’ll find opportunity soon enough. Just remember to keep utilizing job boards, like Hire-A-Muskie, to find something that fits you just right. Looking to expand to even farther cities? Use our Reciprocity Program! This offers students opportunities to use other job boards from different colleges, allowing them to apply to job postings for recent graduates.

While our sights might be set on summer, there’s still a few months left of class. As we continue to trudge along, there are events all around us ready to get us to the next step. One of these events?
