Layoffs Cause Worries for OU's Students

Due to economy related layoffs, students should strive to have as many internships as they can.

Tough economic times have caused many businesses to make budget cuts and layoffs. Even if employers are hiring, they are more likely to choose the recently laid off professional with work experience than  new college graduates without work experience.

" I have already had two (internships) and I am still worried about the chances of me getting a job," advertising junior Merrill Jones said.

Although some students feel graduation may still be far off, they should start thinking about alternative post graduation plans incase they don't get the job of their dreams.
