I’m a college student living in the West Loop on Madison and for the past four months I’ve been trying to find work. At this point, I’d be happy with ANYWHERE! I’ve submitted and followed up with at least 50 applications, if not more, and I’ve gotten nothing back. I’m not an idiot by any means. I have a 3.5 GPA, lots of previous work experience, and excellent references…it almost seems impossible that anyone can any kind of part time work around here. Any suggestions?
You might try applying to some temporary agencies.
Crap. I’m under the impression that part time jobs are all that is out there… Any full time work?
I assume Madison is like Ann Arbor in that college towns have* way *more people looking for part time work than positions available, even in a good economy. I’d look at work study jobs or other student employment listings in your university.
