Spring break is good for something

“By the time that many of you read this, you’ll already have your bags packed, waiting to join the masses of luggage and students making that annual exodus out of Ohio. The declining federal monetary situation and the dozens of news articles on the economy will leave your mind-that is, until you remember your feeble wallet and shudder at the thought of the impending time that you’ll have to leave the college life behind forever.”

By the time that many of you read this, you’ll already have your bags packed, waiting to join the masses of luggage and students making that annual exodus out of Ohio. The declining federal monetary situation and the dozens of news articles on the economy will leave your mind-that is, until you remember your feeble wallet and shudder at the thought of the impending time that you’ll have to leave the college life behind forever.

One thing that probably doesn’t occur to many people, however, is the fact that this trip, or even time off, doesn’t have to be a total drunken waste of money.

Sorry. I’m a downer.

But many of you will be passing by places that you may one day want to work or go to graduate school at. For those with the grim reaper of graduation in sight, this might be your key to success.

Why not take advantage of it?

Of course, I’m not suggesting that you leave Akron for good; the national economic decline that touches Akron is only propagated by the fact that so many of its graduates leave the area in search of a better graduate school or career. But if you’re convinced that your walk across the stage will inevitably lead you away from Akron, perhaps you should put your break to good use.

Grad school is becoming more and more of an attractive option for the next few graduating classes. Getting paid to go to school tops fighting for a second-rate job at your last-choice company or being unemployed. In addition, mastering the basic skills you sought to learn in undergraduate school will improve your financial future and perhaps earn you that dream job. A little bit of research and an extended lunch stop could put you on your way to changing your future and easing your mind a bit.

There are still areas in the country that may offer more jobs than, well, Akron. Both Carolinas are viable options, especially for teachers-and then of course, there’s Texas. Filling out applications-in person-can’t hurt at all.

But if you try to blame me for being escorted out by security for showing up to fill out an application drunk, getting arrested for streaking on your future alma mater, falling asleep at the wheel for driving five hundred miles out of your way or getting kidnapped by the Mexican mafia-well, this is a disclaimer.

Have a great time on spring break. I know I will. go to:
