We are currently in a recession. Our country is in debt and our generation is suffering inflation in education – in other words, college is the new high school and to climb higher on the social ladder requires us to get more degrees than just a four year one. Unfortunately, our jobs are being outsourced to other parts of the world where corporations will only have to pay half as much as for American workers. Thus, a carefully planned summer will help you gain more experiences and improve your chance to succeed. If you are lucky enough to have a job and if your family needs that source of income, it’s great to continue working through the summer. However, if you are not as lucky, or if you are not looking for a job right now, try to join a summer program that trains you in arts and writing. Those skills are not just important in school any more, they are the fundamental skills of many jobs. Volunteering is another way to learn interpersonal skills. You can volunteer at hospitals or local organizations to get a feel of if the job is actually something you’d like in the future.
