“The job market for the class of 2020 looks bleak. The U.S. is facing a possible recession. People are losing their jobs, and no one seems to be hiring right now,” explains Pierre Huguet, CEO and co-founder of college consulting firm H&C Education. “Graduating college seniors should expect to spend the next three to six months without any real job or internship opportunities.” […]

Even though times are tough, especially for those making big life transitions, there’s still a way to make the most out of this complicated time. “Now is a great time for students to help their communities and build their resumes with meaningful real-world work experiences,” says Huguet.
