Coming to a campus near you?

Launched by College of New Jersey sophomore and interactive multimedia major Kyle McCabe, the Condom Ambulance will get you good and prophylactic-ed within minutes of placing your order by phone, text or Web. After a customer fills out the order form, provides an on-campus location and signs a waiver, McCabe hurries over with your order — $3 for one condom, and up to 10 for $15 — and discreetly slips it under your door. The website promises: you’ve gone from “kissing, to condoms, to sexy-time in mere seconds.”

When you tell your kids to get a job at college who would think it would lead to this? Crafty fellow?
What kind of jobs has your college student held?

Dd's first job ever this year came about b/c I heard about it. 

For the last 2 seasons I've been temping for Pearson.   They score standardized tests that kids take.  What I do is read essays. The pay isn't bad, and we could use the extra money. 

I did a 2 week job with them.  They told us on the last day we had work that they were going to be looking for kids ages 18-22, graduated within the last 2 years to take a test.  They were "testing" out a new standardized test they were looking to give high schoolers who were graduating. A couple of weeks before dd had to leave for school- this ad popped up in the paper.  Told dd to apply and to put my name down as someone she knows who's worked for them.   She worked for a week- and got over $300- all for a couple of hours taking a test! 

She's going to be home for a month, and I was kind of hoping she could find something.  Since I'm constantly scanning the want-ads myself, I've come across a couple of ads by parents looking for care over Christmas break, since many daycares are closed that week. So I'm keeping my eyes and ears open to hear if anyone around is looking for backup care.

Lifeguarding (4 places now), working at our City Museum (not a museum like you think) and valeting. Yes, crafty fellow - not a bad idea. Never know what will fly!

My DD came home for break yesterday and is getting her old job at McD's back for the break. Next semester, she will hopefully be in a program for education majors, where they work alongside a teacher in a public school on Fridays, to find out if teaching is for them,before they get too far along in school. And they get a small stipend, too.

Cheryl, I've been with Pearson for about 3 years now. I do the Math exams. It's nice additional work. I need to keep an eye out in the papers for that kind of stuff. That would have been nice for DD, even though she's a horrible standardized test taker.

What is really crazy is only about 65% of American adolescents receive instruction in sex ed.
