Coming to a decision

September 18, 2009 at 11:22 am (Research)

This semester I want to focus on a topic that is both interesting to me and my audience. That is you, the average student. I have come up with an idea I think is great and a few others as back up plans.

* Odd jobs – (My great idea) In the current state of the economy some students find it difficult to get a job to make some extra cash. The typical waitressing jobs and mall jobs are taken and it seems like no one is hiring. But wait, there are plenty of odd jobs waiting to be applied for. I have had a few myself and I plan on introducing you to some as well.

* International students – Most students want to travel, but for some reason or another they don’t get to it or can’t afford it. My proposition is to bring the culture to you. Towson is full of international students and I bet most would love to talk about their culture and heritage.

* Staying hip with a low budget – As college students we can all pretty much say we are not made of money. So how can we still satisfy our needs and wants? I plan to find out and give you a step-by-step tutorial on how to stay hip with a low budget.

    I like the odd jobs idea. I’ve had many myself, along with many stories to share with friends. You can interview many different students to see what they loved about their weird job the most. You should focus on what makes each of these jobs odd. Is it the type of work, the other employees, or maybe a combination of both? I think that the interesting people you work with would be just as cool to write about as the type of job.
