Want to do a year of service after graduation?  Then you’re in luck!  Americorp and other service programs are set to expand from 75,000 positions to 225,000 positions.  The house passed the bill last Wednesday, and the Senate is expected to pass a nearly identical bill very soon.

In addition to doing a lot of good, you may also qualify for some help paying your student loans.  Visit the Americorp website to learn more.

    This is also a great resume item coming out of school in this economic climate.

    Hard to get a job so why not sign up for a nonprofit assignment.

    The corproate world will be impressed when you return to the job market and you will have a leg up on the entry level competition.

    This is a great suggestion Monique.
