    Oh, boy, Emilie! I don’t envy you this huge task of reading all the responses to this position from the likes of us! laughing… Need help?

  4. Janet says:

    I just sent you an Emilie. I first went to this website 2 days after the closing (July 23rd) and I am searching for a job just 5-10 hours a week.

    I discovered you on my thorough research because I was conflicted in what to major in upon earing my AA with honors.

    I hope you will read my e-mail and reply. You are. So awesome. You know people sometimes find their physical twin? You are the closest to my brain’s twin, and I now feel like I have a true purpose and have been sharing your message (Ted talk website) with my school advisor, and professors alike.

    If the job has not been filled, I would love to apply.

    Your friend,

      Hi Janet,

      Unfortunately, the application is closed. We received 74 applications so it’s already going to be an impossible decision. :)
