“I figured it would be a good time to search for a job. I’ve been looking for a few months and going to interviews, but I haven’t been called back. I’m bilingual, so maybe one of these companies will need me.”
Kealani Hughes, a student who is employed by McDonald's, says that she “hates” working fast food. She continues her search for a better job.

“This year, I found that it’s not so hard to find a job if you look in the right place,” said student Kyle Weakland. Most of the jobs that he found, he says came from radio and Google ads.
Some students feel like most jobs that college students are hired to perform are menial. They would prefer a job in a field that they are studying. They feel like they have proper education and qualifications.
“It’s really hard to get a job these days unless you have a degree in hand, but it’s good to have prospects,” said student Joseph Rowland. “I work for a big corporation and its hard working for them and going to school.”
Kathryn Medrano said, “It’s still hard to find a job. They (employers) don’t want students, they want graduates.” Medrano says that she is already employed by McDonald's, but she, like Hughes, is looking for a new job.
“Even if you have an awesome job, you should keep your options open," said Rowland.
