No, It's Still Not Too Late
A Sampling of Jobs You Can Still Apply for
It's March and everyone you know is getting geared up for one of those jobs that looks great on the old resume:
The guy across the hall has an internship on the hill with his congressman.
Your roommate has a job in the emergency room at the hospital back home.
Worst of all, the woman next door said that all the deadlines for summer jobs were a month ago.
And you? You've been so busy with your classes that you can't seem to find time to make it over to the career services office and find yourself a job. Better not waste your time now--the woman across the hall was right All the internships on the hill are gone.
But don't be alarmed. The following is a far-from-complete list summer opportunities whose deadlines haven't passed you up, but we hope it'll be of some help.
