Farewell Friends, I’m off to the Mitten

Well readers, this is it. Today marks my last day as a Chicago Public Radio intern and your go-to girl for information about jobs and joblessness in Chicago. I scourged the Internet for career tips, job fairs and job opportunities and posted what I found to make your job hunt a little easier in these hard times.

In a week I head back to East Lansing, Michigan to embark on my senior year at Michigan State University. At 15 percent, my mitten state has the nation’s highest unemployment rate.  I’ve been away since December, so it’ll be interesting to see how much Michigan has changed in that time.

I’m leaving Chicago, but I won’t be far. I’ll update periodically about life in Lower Peninsula and what it’s like to be a college senior in my generation’s greatest economic downturn.
