Although more summer jobs are available this year compared to last, students will still have a difficult time finding work.

Both the on-campus Career Services and the Calgary Youth Employment Centre have seen some recovery in their job postings, but are not reaching the same numbers they used to. The types of jobs posted are also different.

A recent advertisement, which first appeared on campus bulletin boards around Sept. 9, may not offer students what they bargained for.

The poster offers students the opportunity to work from home selling an unidentified product as an extra source of income. Upon visiting the website and providing their name and e-mail address, a potential employee can purchase a "Decision Package" to help set up their own Internet business.
