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).

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. :)
