I graduate in 3 weeks. That's why its such a big deal that I found a job actually. The jobs I have now, one is strictly for students and the other is strictly 14 hours a week.

There is actually something up here called Child Development Services. One of the positions they have is going into homes and analysizing children birth-age 5 on where they are developmental. If the child is behind, the recommand how to help that child (speech lessons, etc.). I really want that job but there is nothing open so I'll have to wait awhile. I have a contact there so she should let me know. But I don't want to leave the daycare too soon. Bad for my rep.

Congrats on the new job! I live in PA and majored in psychology, so that's sort of similar to child development. I now work as a therapeutic support staff (TSS) for a counseling agency. I work with children with behavioral and emotional problems in the home, school, and community settings. Most of the children have ADHD, Autism, or Conduct Disorders and are anywhere from 3-18 years old. I'm not sure if there are similar jobs in your area, but you would definitely be well qualified with a bachelor's degree in child development. TSS' generally make anywhere from $12-$18 an hour, so it would be something for you to look into when you graduate college (if you haven't already).

Megan,
Your wedding day is just around the corner. My 15th anniversary is April 24th. On the day I got married it was 78 degrees in Illinois. It was an awesome day.
Best Wishes!
Carolyn

I have finally found a job. I will be an Assistant Teacher in the Waddler's Room (12 mo-2.5 yrs) in a daycare about 25 minutes from my apartment. No less than 36 hours a week at $8/hr. Not the best but not bad either. Good for just out of college. I start May 5th. My husband is still looking but at least one of us has something. :)

Thanks for all the support and advice.
