Summer jobs hard to find
By DAN GRANTHAM
If you're looking for a job this summer, there's only
one comforting thought - you're not alone.
Michigan's unemployment figures may be getting
better, hut it isn't any easier for students to, find
work this summer, according to weary job hunters
and area business people.
"EVEN IN MY field, that's supposed to he open,
it's hard to get part-time work," said computer
science major Larry Kahn, who has joined the ranks
of students searching the bulletin board at the

But the office doesn't receive a full listing of job
openings at the University, so it is up to students to do

Some, like the plant department, have felt the budget

selman, a grounds division foreman.

WHILE FIGURES show that unemployment in
Michigan decreased 1.5 percent between March and
April, area businesses are still feeling the economic
pinch - they've kept their same staff for the winter
or simply increased working hours instead of hiring
