Using your work email appropriately is important. If you use it inappropriately, you may find yourself at the center of a corporate audit, or worse. Too often I've seen new hires make these basic mistakes and I cringe when I see them appear in my inbox.
Student life is already hard and expensive enough as it is. Most of us had to balance classes and work, and were expected to have good grades. Work study jobs may not provide enough money, or it may all need to go to tuition, and finding a job for just the summer, or that fits into a limited schedule, can be difficult.

American taxpayers are spending 25 billion dollars annually on the unemployment crisis alone.
As an intern in the sports department, the youngest of all my colleagues, I was given the task to travel to the NBA Draft and give live coverage of the event. It was as if my editors knew my birthday (November 18th for those wondering) was too far away. So instead they gave me my gift a few months in advance.
