Alternatives to the Mad College Grad Rush for Entry Level Part Time Jobs


It's two weeks before graduation. You have two internships under your belt and a stellar grade point average. But despite submitting your résumé to 80 companies throughout the country, you still have not landed a job. What's a recent college grad to do?

Lately, the trend has been to take part-time internships or fellowships until a full-time gig becomes available. For some recent graduates, taking on a low paying, part-time job is hard to swallow when student loan payments are just six months away. However, staying employed in your field -- even if it's part-time -- will eventually help you land a full-time job once the economy turns around.
