Students are losing summer jobs race

May 8, 2006


A front-page story about the tight job market for college and high school students in metro Detroit mentions Marcus White, a 20-year old Wayne State student. Despite his best efforts to impress potential employers, he hasn't been able to land job interviews. "Sometimes I don't get any response at all," he says. "Other times, they call and say the job is already taken or they found someone with more qualifications than me." A photo of White at a computer terminal in the WSU Undergraduate Library accompanies the story. Another Wayne State student, Luke Ramage, expressed concern about earning enough to meet living expenses and tuition.
