What are the chances I'll actually receive a job offer following my internship? I'm working really hard and love the company where I'm interning. Should I make it known with my current manager that I want a job here after my internship?

Yes, you should absolutely let your manager know that you would love a fulltime opportunity at the company that you are interning. You should also let the HR/Campus Recruiter and HR Business Partner know that…

I've been working for a company for 2 years. I started right out of college. To say the least, it's a grind. I've been earning entry level salary (~$35k/yr) throughout my employ, but my managers really push us hard (I work an average of 65hrs/wk). I'm worried because I can feel myself burning out. I've brought this up to my managers and they say this is the job. Therefore, I want to look for new work but don't want to get into the same situation. I want a reasonable work-life balance. Is that hard to come by these days with a bad economy?? I have no problem working hard, but I don't want my entire life to be consumed by my job. I feel like recruiters won't like if I tell them I want to work an honest work week and not always be at the office for 12hrs a day. Any advice for me on what I should do? Am I delusional to think that I'll find somewhere I can work an average of 40hr/wk? Thank you!

No, you are not unreasonable to want that. There are many companies who value work life balance. I do not think that you will have a hard time finding a job at around 35K a year that gives you that balance.…

I am a fashion designer from San Francisco. I am looking for entry level opportunities in Fashion industry. Thing is I don't have a degree in Fashion design, I took classes at an art school, but did not pursue for a degree. Having said that, I do have qualitative internship and freelance experience as an apparel designer. Would not having a degree be a problem in job hunt? PS- I have a bachelors degree in computer engineering(If it counts)

For most companies, you will probably find that they seek candidates that have a similar degree…
