I'm not an expert in giving advice but I do want to share my opinion and experience on this issue. Before I graduated from college, I was on my second year as a college student then when I decided to try my luck with a summer job. I went to a college different from where I studied in high school. My alumni when I was still in high school accepted its own graduates to work as parttime in the school during summer vacations. Fortunately, I got the job. I worked for two consecutive summers so I got some sort of a working experience to back my formal education when I graduated. This really helped me a lot. I believe that competition is really hard in obtaining employment after graduation. A student must do his or her part in passing the course and more so, he must be able to grasp what is being taught to him either in school or the lessons of life. And one more pointer, if he's so desperate to acquire the job; he should be willing to learn the trade or the job's requirements and should always be open to criticisms in order to improve himself. He should also always consult God to guide Him in all his undertakings and for guidance in obtaining a decent and legal job. Anyway, take care, good luck on your endeavors, and God bless.

I think college offer a stage for us.In college you have enough time and energies to consider what will you do and you have many chance to show yourself. College life should colourful and we shoud enjoy college life because it is a spring-board for our future life and work so we must cherish.you could make use of holiday and vacant time to increase your work experience.I think our life is wondeful

it is exactly as what you said,we shoud cherish the life in the college,and make good use of the previous time,or else,we would waste all of the opportunities provided by the college.
