This economy has been rough. We have all had, or known someone who has had, trouble finding or maintaining a job. I recently got contacted by a contracting firm for a temp job, and although it’s an amazing opportunity for me, it’s been tough along the way. So what have I been doing all this time besides working odd minimum wage jobs? While polishing my resume, of course. This is the most crucial advice I can give to those of you who are still frustrated and looking. Visit your library to find materials on writing for your resume and searching for jobs. Use this time to edit your resume, create your portfolio, and acquire recommendation letters, all while you may be back living with your parents and saving up all your loose change. The hard work will pay off soon!
