I'm working on a story about summer hiring in the area and was hoping you guys could help. We've heard that high school and college students looking for summer work this year will see stiffer competition than usual, with so many people laid off and out of work. Apparently they're up against people who have been in the workforce for years already, which means the younger guys will probably find themselves sending out more applications and knocking on a few more doors. I'm looking for a high school or college student looking for a seasonal job who would be willing to talk to me about their job hunt experience. If you're that student or you know of someone who might be good to speak with, let me know! You can reach me either by replying to this blog, by e-mail at or you can call at 361-580-6511. Thanks!
