If you picture a college on-campus recruiting center as a slightly gloomy place with 3×5 index cards posted on the wall listing bad job openings (Wanted! Person with degree in biophysical engineering to fix sewer problems. $7.50 per hour!), it turns out that things have changed, according to Alexandra Anderson, associate director of career services at Southwestern University.

Superb website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same
topics talked about in this article? I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get opinions from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Kudos!
