2. Yes, we are in a recession and jobs are hard to find. Don't let that stop you from looking for the perfect job. Job hunting is like buying a car. You need to shop around for the right one.

3. Don't do something drastic, like join the Peace Core, because there is nothing else for you to do. Find something to do because you want to.
