Pioneer April 27,2001 5 Horoscopes Capric om The summer ahead holds many changes for you. Take advantage o f them, and keep a lookput for those friends who need your support. AM A M Try not to get on your friends’ nerves this week. You have different sets of priorities, s o respect theirs i f you want them to stay off your back. K Pisces Try not to focus so much on the lit­ tle things, as you always do. In life, it is the bigger picture that matters. Let go, and experience freedom! IE Gemini Get out and get moving this week. Staring at those books won’t make you leam any more than you already have. Try a summer internship instead. Aries Good thing you go home soon, because your family needs your sup­ port in the next few weeks. Don’t let them down. Taurus Don’t sit around this summer. Take advantage of the extra time and do something to advance yourself. 23 Cancer That big decision you’re making seems scary, but you are going about it the right way.

X’1 Sagittarius A ll your efforts this semester will pay off, so don’t feel guilty about tak­ ing a breather or two this week before exams. The Pioneer would like to thank Dash and Kharye for a great semes­ ter, and all their efforts. Good luck Guys! Summer Fashion Do’s and Don’ts B y Angela Meradji Pioneer Life Editor Along with the aid o f a few fashion savvy friends, I have compiled a list o f the biggest fashion trends and faux-pas for this summer. Summer is only just beginning, so you have plenty of time to get your wardrobe ready. Feel free to argue with any tips in the list, because everyone has their own sense o f style. D o n ’t wear anything with fringe. This goes especially for shorts. Think daisy dukes and you’ll get the point. D o wear a strapless bra with tank tops. A sk your guy friends ladies, and they'll tell you the truth about this one. D o n ’t EVER wear socks with sandals. Need I say more? D o highlight your hair. But keep it a natural shade. Don’t live in denim. Think in terms o f khaki and white, which is hot again, Do be bold guys, and sport a Hawaiian shirt. Don’t wear anything spandex, and stay away from heavy materials. Do wear rhinestone tattoos. Guys will be wondering what it is, which makes for extra attention. Trust me on this. Don’t bother with the upside down and backwards visor look. What is teh point o f the visor if you do that? Do buy a nice denim skirt. Keep it on the knee-length side, and remeber to avoid the ones with fringe. Don’t be caught wearing boots, not even the knee-high ones. Do invest in a bright pareo to wear with your bathing suit when you aren’t swimming. They are flirty, and keep you from revealing everything. D o n ’t wear anything that is too small. Stretched seams and crease lines aren’t fashionable, and never will be. Sorry. Do wear one-shoulder tanks and dress­ es. Unlike tube tops, they stay on, and look better too. D o n ’t wear board shorts with under­ wear guys. That lining is there for a reason. Underwear bands are not attractive anymore. Do wear hats. But don’t hide your longing gazes from the world by wear­ ing them pushed down. Don’t buy a 1 piece swimsuit. They make styles that fit every body. Two pieces have the added fun of mixing and matching. H e l p f u l h i n t s t o s t a r t y o u r j o b s e a r c h B y Kharye Dunlap, Staff Writer and Angela Meradji, Life Editor Summer is fast approaching, and you may be either looking for part- time job, or y o u ’re graduating, and you need a full-time job. There is less than two weeks of school left, which doesn’t leave much time. There are many different ways o f searching for a job. Your first instinct may be to check the want ads. But, according to Career Services, “Want ads account for only a five to ten per­ cent success rate.” A search is consid­ ered successful if it leads to the job you want, whether full or part-time. Want ads have a low success rate for three reasons. The first is that a want ad is a public announcement, and can often lead to strong competition, Depending on where you find the ad, hundreds to thousands o f people have found i t along with you. The next rea­ son is that your esume will often be pre-scanned b y electronic key word searches, or b y a viewer. And finally, there is no guarantee that you’ll get a response in a timely manner. The next job search method is through a temporary employment agency. This method has a ten to fif­ teen percent success rating when find­ ing a full-time job. It is important to understand that these agencies work for the client company, and is focused more on finding the best candidate for the job, rather than getting you employment. Career Services reports that, “A search firm does not contact companies to find a job for you.” With the omnipresence of the internet, the most popular way to find a job among college students may be online. A recent online job search found over ten-thousand job search engines. This can make your search a little confusing, but many sites offer options to narrow your search. Once you find a job that interests you, it is recommended that you respond through email, rather than through the site. By emailing them yourself, you are not restricted to the pre-formatted design o f the search engine. Many online job searches offer the option o f posting your resume. This allows employers access to your resume, but, this can lead to a false sense of security, because the employ­ er does not interact with you. Job searches are conducted through the use of keywords. For example, i f an employer is looking for a financial reporter, and sees the words financial reporter in your resume, they may think you are a match. But in actuali­ ty, they are looking for a financial analyst, and you are a financial news reporter. Although internet searches are by far the most convenient method, they should not b e the only one you use. According to the US Department o f Labor, two-third o f all jobs are obtained through word-of-mouth and informal referrals. While networking may be the most successful method, this does not mean that you should call everyone you know and ask for a job. For information contact Career Services.
