Rant #26: Hire My Daughter, Please
My daughter recently returned from school for the summer break. She goes to a SUNY school, and I am proud to say that she pulled in a near straight-A cume this past semester. She is doing very well in her studies, and hopes to teach elementary education when she graduates next year. She plans on taking a few courses this summer locally.
The problem is this: she cannot find a job. As everyone knows, the employment situation stinks right now, with the country going through a cycle of nearly double-digit unemployment. For teenagers and college kids, the rate is about double.
She has been just about everywhere--from fast food to Wal-Mart to camps and beyond--but so far nothing.
Does anybody know where she can go for a job? Again, she will be a senior at college in the fall, and will be returning to school in mid-August, so she needs the job roughly from mid-June to mid-August.
As a father, I am really powerless to do anything, but I think this is the least I can do for her.
