Economic slowdown may affect employment search
By David Dunai
graduating in 2002 will have a tougher time finding jobs than graduates
have in previous years because of the economic slow down, Carolyn
Ulrickson, director of Career Services, said Wednesday.
said this difficulty does not mean that employment opportunities
are not available and that Career Services will continue to help
students find the job that would suit them the best.
Brown, assistant director of the Graduate Career Service Center
at the M.J. Neeley School of Business, said big employers have been
impacted by the economic slowdown.
big companies work on keeping their employees instead of hiring
new ones and they focus more on internships as an option for newcomers,
is a sense of wait-and-see attitude among companies, but there are
signs that yield for some optimism that the economy would start
to go up, Brown said.

Think of yourself
as a humidifier a chapped, flaking, scaly, itching humidifier.
Because in effect, come January and cold temperatures and forced-air
heat, thats what you become.
Consider the physics. Your body is 60 percent water, more or less.
The humidity of indoor winter air tends to hover closer to 30, and
easily can plummet into the single digits, depending on how cold
it is outside and where you set your thermostat.
quick ways to protect your skin:
a humidifier to increase the amount of water in the air in your
home or work place.
your showers to no more than 15 minutes and use lukewarm water.
a moisturizer to your skin while its still wet after youve
showered or washed your hands.
out moisturizing products that contain alpha or poly hydroxy acids,
and humectants such as vitamin B-5.
lots of water, and eat plenty of oily fish such as tuna and salmon.
