Alright, two thoughts on this thread:

First, as someone who works for a college, I have to ask: ARE YOU TAKING FULL ADVANTAGE OF YOUR SCHOOL'S PLACEMENT OFFICE? I'm frankly amazed by the percentage of students at *my* school who don't even know that the Career & Placement Services office even exists! Endear yourself to the folks there, who often know recruiters at top employers VERY well.

Second, I have to put my 2 cents in on health insurance. DH never had it until we married and I put him on my policy. He was in perfect health! Then, bam!, massive stroke out of nowhere last summer. Bills currently tracked at $186,000.00. Insurance has paid everything but a couple of thousand. Can't imagine life without it. Or him. :-)

slip slidin' all over the river tonight (dang pleasure-boaters & their wakes)
