I've already spent 4 hours applying to jobs today... they're obviously out there. It might be really competitive, but not impossible.
OnStaff has both Kalamazoo and Allegan offices. They are the service that Stryker uses. I dont know about Perrigo.

With your bachelors in psychology you could easily apply and probably get the part time child care worker position posted on the Allegan website. I worked in residential treatment for years and we were always hoping to get bachelor's prepared people in the door as they had the credentials to be in supervisory positions down the road.

Best of luck with the job search.

I've actually worked in child care before as well.... I've done a little bit of everything!

Good to know... I'll check it out!

Don't just check the Kalamazoo area. Allegan is not a tiny town and you are just as close to Holland, Saugatuck, Paw Paw, Zeeland, Plainwell, Otsego and Grand Rapids just to name a few.

The Holland/Zeeland and Grand Rapids areas are growing pretty steady.

Honestly, I'm not sure

It hasn't been that bad, but we'll see how this new tax (enacted last month) plays out for us.

I believe it is fair to say (she even admits the irony). REI has a past with donating to the Sierra Club (and others), and we know how 4x4-friendly they are.

Your example sucks. I need to buy gas, but I can buy my camping accessories from someone other than REI.
