Re: “Get a job, ya bum!

Just got my first job at 17. When you get your first part time job is different for people these days, as (as an above poster said), you often need to get lucky. For example I just started work for Morrisons. I sent off my application the first week of september, my friend sent hers of the day before. But I was lucky enough to get an interview, and then the job. Ask your family if there is a spot available where they work.

Re: “Student Survival Guide 2012

Youth unemployment is one of the most serious problems today. We all know that student loan debt is already more than $1 trillion and it continiues to grow each day. I think that students and graduates should pay attention to different ways of a job search. It can be some intern jobs or somethings like that, the most important is to get a chance to express yourself and show that your knowledge is really worth something. College education is extremely expensive, some students even use loans from to make payments on their student loans but unfortunately, college degree isn’t a guarantee of employment. So it’s necessary to do your best to get a chance to make a successful career.

Re: “How to be in debt

Unfortunately, plenty of people consider being in debt and missing payments as something totally normal. It’s not okay when so many young people graduate with a huge debt they can not repay and then struggle for long years to pay it off. It’s sad, but education is a luxury today and those, who can not save enough cash and financial support from parents, should take out loans to get a degree. But on the other hand, there are still options available in case a person wants to avoid a debt. There are federal programs and saving plans like 529, which allow to save money and to avoid getting in a long-term debt.

Re: “Saved by the sell

You interns should try and find places nobody knows about since these places get pretty packed

I realize there is a small conflict to list the Leechpit in your student guide, but it is an equal conflict of interest to "our" highly esteemed readers to exclude us.

Re: “Play

I admire those groups working for GLBT, also those online services like the one BiLoves. Many of my friends there have spent their careers working for equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons. I think they are really very great.

Re: “Don't believe the hype

Don't do it. Basically the site builds websites for credit card offers (this somehow makes you money when others apply for the card on your site).The terms & conditiond & disclaimer basically state if you do not request a refund in 7 days no refund. Also if during those 7 days you clicked on anything to see the site you no longer qualify for the refund.... but they will let you think you may based statements such as we will review the terms & conditions & if you qualify for a refund we will send that to you after the 60 day trial. Sarah states "If at any time after you register you're NOT completely convinced DATA ENTRY WORK is worth the price of your registration many times over, I'll immediately give you $97.00 in exchange for the trust you showed me." I stated my disatisfaction & requested a refund 4 days ago (approx an hour after I registered) I have yet to receive a refund. I have received an e-mail stating I needed to apply to the credit card companies for the credit cards and an e-mail again stating if I qualify as stated in the terms & conditions I may recieve a refund after 60 days.. Don't do it! Don't do any of them
