About the Blog

The focus of this blog is to provide useful content for our readers. In this blog, we will share interesting things about collaborative culture. We will write about problems that haven’t been tackled, talk about P2P 2.0 which is in in full swing now, discussing a lot about a recession battered community and how students are looking at new innovative ways to earn money. Did you know that money problems, not bad grades, are the reason cited by most college students who have considered dropping out? Even Steve Jobs faced the same dilemma as a genius student when he dropped out of Reed College.

A majority of students at four-year colleges say they routinely feel at least a little worried about having enough money to make it through the week, according to the poll, conducted in partnership with Stanford University. Scrimping has long been part of the college experience, of course, but tough times in the real world mean even tighter money on campus. Technological trends and a heightened brand awareness brought on by the convergence of social media and smartphone technology has given rise to a better “connected ” but “champagne” student lifestyle. Are today’s students graduating with an unprecedented level of debt to keep up with these trends?

Topics discussed within this blog will range from such news that I think are of particularly important for students and parents to be aware of as they pursue higher education and career opportunities. We will also discuss the challenges faced by consumers and families at large who find it hard to afford quality services and would stand to benefit from an affordable network of quality student services.

We will blog about challenges businesses face while trying to manage hiring costs, discuss economic shift that has forced businesses into a new model and made them see the value proposition of seasonal or temporary labor.
Students with a healthy work ethic can become a strategic component of the seasonal workforce, even if they have little or no experience. But now, with jobs scarce, students in a given industry provide even greater value as seasonal employees — and more are available for work. Today, students are a better value than ever.
