Sasha Obama Reportedly Working Summer Job On Martha's Vineyard

If you thought that being the president's daughter excused you from a summer of serving food or folding T-shirts, Sasha Obama is proof that sometimes even first teens spend the season hard at work.

According to the Boston Herald, the 15-year-old has been working early shifts at Nancy's, a seafood restaurant and family favorite out on Martha's Vineyard. Apparently the gig is slated to end when her parents arrive for their island vacation on Saturday. (Meanwhile, older sister Malia Obama is living it up on her gap year, as she should be.)

"She's been working downstairs at takeout," a server told the Herald. "We were wondering why there were six people helping this girl, but then we found out who it was." The six people are, of course, the Secret Service agents accompanying Sasha.

A girl working the takeout window added, "She's been around for a few days. It's pretty random."

Yes, anonymous teen. Random indeed.

Take advantage of your college career center
Most universities offer career coaching from trained professionals who specialize in development and advancement. Whether or not you have an idea of your career plans post-college, it can be beneficial to take a few hours out of your day and set up an appointment with one of the counselors. Many times, these professionals can review and help you tailor your resumé and cover letter. To top it off, because of their experience and networks in various industries, counselors have the potential to connect you with hiring managers.

Begin creating and using your network 
One of the most important aspects to finding a job is taking advantage of your professional and personal network. Your connections can vary from your family members and friends to your professors and alumni. If you feel as if you're lacking a valuable network, however, business association events and gatherings are the best way to gain important contacts.

Always follow up  
With the advancement of modern technology, most job applications are done online. Because of this new process, it oftentimes makes it harder to find the person of contact to follow up with. However, you shouldn't let that initial obstacle prevent you from following up. If you can't find the name of the hiring manager directly reviewing your application, use LinkedIn to do a search of the next best person to reach out to. Many potential employees miss out on interviews by not being proactive and sending follow up emails.
