Summer Job in this Market
Hey, hey, I need to brag....and reflect......
Last weekend I was feeling very sad for my college kid.
Last summer, the company that hired him for summer internship promised him a job for this year.
Well, the market went bust, so the company was not hiring.
Js was holding on a hope that they would change their mind.
School was out for the summer and he had not received anything. I was so down in the dump.
On Monday evening, as I was moping around in my garden, of course, Js called to tell me that the manager had called him on Sat at 6:00 am: he got the job. Whoohoo.
He didn't get anything in writing until Wed though.
PV, remember a few years ago when I posted asking about housing in NYC? The first summer, he found himself a spiffy studio on Battery Park. Last summer, he roomed with other interns at Columbia. He is in NYC right now checking into a dorm at Columbia again.
Sigh......how your heart goes as they grow....Mine just turned 20 on Friday. Where did all the time go?
My one and only.........the apple of my eyes, the heart of my heart........
Hats off to this kid of mine...who found himself a cushy summer job when other people are losing theirs........although expenses in NYC will eat up a good chunk of what he makes.....
