    Commuting – A Good Way to Save?


    I attended college for five years - two years at a community college and three more at a university.  Both campuses were about 20 minutes away from my home - not a bad commute.  I didn't have a choice of staying on campus at the community college, but I did at the university.  I needed to make a tough decision when I transferred, whether it was cheaper to stay on campus or commute.

    Job Searching on the Web


    As a recent college graduate I have been embarking on the journey to find a job. I have used job search sites to try and find a position and have found that many are returning ads and useless results. This frustration has led me to find some other avenues for my job search. In this post I highlight some of my lessons and I hope that you will share yours as we all try to find jobs in a very different economy than when we started school.

    Master’s Degrees’ – Are they Worth the Time and Money?


    Since I've graduated from college I've been having a hard time finding a job. And, a lot of post grads are in my same situation, leading me to the idea of going back to school to get my master's degree.Mainly to possibly make myself more marketable in my career field, but also because I wouldn't have to start paying back my student loans, as well as freezing up some extra time to prepare myself for the professional world.
